    I use a 20x 20 x 3/8 pad folded over to 10 x 20 (2 in cold weatrher) as the frame for my pack and under my legs/feet in the foot box of the WBBB. Problem is they won't stay put even if between the bottom layers. Think I'll try Cannibals idea and use my pack w/my feet thru the hip belt. Sounds clumsy but might do the trick.

    Any other ideas for keeping the foot/leg pads in place?

    Down Vest to supplement Yeti

    I just got back from an overnighter on Blood Mtn last night. I have a Blackbird and a 3 season Yeti. I attached my down vest to the outside of the hammock at the foot end, then stuffed my light-weight down jacket in the vest under the hammock. I really worked well! It got down to 23 and my feet were toasty. I usually carry both items so they now have dual uses.

    Thanks for all the differant solutions

    The folks on HF site are really the best ever. Thanks for all of the reply's. What I have taken away from this is that I will stick with my current set up and make it work for colder conditions with innovative strategies learned here on HF. .....The urge for new gear just takes over sometimes, thanks for hanging with me until it passed

    Never past-tense. Any passing around here is only temporary when it comes to gear I'm afraid.
    Could be much worse. We could be hanging out at "Crack Forums". Overall, I think our addiction is a positive one.

    My 2 cents: Why not tie your waterproof layer around the down jacket, just to keep it dry? it is your body insulation layer, bad if it gets wet. I generally tie these layers around my ends anyway.
