    Question DIAD for hammock interior?

    OK DIY guys does this sound feasible?It would be effective against wind/coldspots I believe and alittle R.4 for some warmth. Use this Plastazote and cut to ASYM to fit HH and afix pad cut accordingly to interior of hammock with hook n loop on hammock and pad to prevent shifting. Here's info of the DIAD:



    DIAD pad lives up to its namesake, as it's light enough and small enough to carry for emergency situations on your done-in-a-day pursuits. The DIAD weighs less than two ounces, is comprised of a Plastazote® foam rated to an R-value of approximately .4, is 3/16 of an inch (.48 cm) thick and 20 inches (50.8 cm) wide by 40 inches (101.6 cm) long. The one hundred-centimeter length is just long enough to provide a conductive heat-loss barrier in the torso region and the half-centimeter thickness is just enough to provide minimal comfort against the ground.

    Uses

    Being so small and weighing so little, this pad will probably not wind up in the average backpacker's pack as their primary pad. It will find its place as an emergency item or with the purpose of boosting another pad's warmth and comfort for shoulder season or winter pursuits.

    Features

    Size (length x width x thickness): 40 x 20 x 3/16 in (101.6 x 50.8 x 0.48 cm) *** Nominal dimensions - may vary by +/- 3% ***
    Weight: Varies by item from 1.7 to 1.9 oz (48 to 54 g)
    R-Value: Approx. .4
    Compressibility: Plastazote® is resistant to the compression of the user's body over time



    Yeah or Neah? and why?
