    At home in the bedroom DIY I use a military poncho liner wadded up. Still sleep head right/feet left with enough sag that I hardly need anything.

    Me too except sometimes I use my ripstop wind layer stuff sack under my knees.


    Oldman -- saw your note a few weeks ago about using the Ursack I assume in Oly.

    The park in general 'frowns' on un-hung un-lined Ursacks in the BC in bear areas ... but last year the metal liner addition was OK.

    One of the WICs will flash a goat chewed bag at you if you say 'Ursack' in the building.

    Right now I do not know exactly what to tell you about 2010 it may change .. good luck. We have 2 bags too plus 2 small Bearvaults and 2 large Bearvaults.

    Ditto. Or I sleep on my side.

    At home I use a pillow. In camp it's a jacket or a stuff sack with some clothing in it.

    Its usually pants, or whatever drifts down to the knee area, or up from the bum area when I first get into the hammock. Coat, pants, just not shoes, as they have too many hard parts I'm usually too sleepy to care, just take the minor leg pressure away and I am happy.
