    I also have to mention the Gossamer Gear Thinlight pads. They are very light, a lot more packable than the blue WM pads, and offer really good insulation for the 1/4" thickness. They offer a wide/long version for hammock users. That has been my pad of choice for a long time. If you get the wide/long version it is best to trim it down to a mummy shape because it's almost to big for a HH and you could have problems getting it to lie flat.

    True that the original UQ... The JRB Nest... was designed for the HH....

    The Nest and all the standard sized JRB qulits function equally well on any hammock model.... That is 11 quilt models total so you have choices.

    As you've already heard, there is no definitive answer...for several reasons. Mainly, as Hooch says, what works for one may not work for another. For example, CCF pads work great for some folks...but I get condensation with them and it's not comfortable for me.

    Here's a list of some options that I put together, with pics. I should probably update it soon...there are a few new products out like the Speer underquilt, and the soon-to-be Warbonnet underquilts, and a few other things I've been thinking about adding. But it's a good place to start.

    If it helps, I have used my JRB nest on a DIY speer hammock with good results.

    I've used my JRB on an HH and Speer. It works better on the HH, but it still kept me warm on the Speer. The PeaPod worked better than the JRB on the Speer, but of course it doesn't work on the HH.

    FWIW, a PeaPod plus thin top quilt is comparable in weight, rating and cost to the JRB 3 Season Set. Not exact, but comparable.
