    Hmm, you could sew one piece for the HH part before the slit. Then a piece for each side of the slit. You would have 3 pads one large one and 2 small ones. Could work.

    another invention idea

    This is the kind of setup I am now using. I don't know how it would work for a stock HH since mine is now a top loader.:^) My new hammock has a 1.9oz RS nylon bed and a 1.1oz RS nylon under cover. The cover is only attached by whipping it to the ends. This way it can be moved completely to one side if it it is not needed in hot weather. It can be pulled into place for mosquito protection easily and also holds my SPE perfectly in place no matter how I toss and turn at night. I have decided that I will use a pad (be it foam or inflatable) as my insulation for my thru-hike. I always carry one in case I am forced to sleep on the groung either due to lack of hanging supports or extreme cold weather so I might as well use it. My next idea is to sew SPE type pockets directly into the undercover. Right now it's just an idea because I think it will only save me the weight of the back of the SPE so it may not be worth losing the flexability of the seperate piece. Oh well, I have until 2008 to figure it out.

    Tom Claytor's hammocks are all double bottomed and work very well. I've inserted both a Thermorest pad and a partially inflated insulated air mattress and both have stayed in place very well. It's very easy to insert the pads. Here's a pic.
