    How Big is your footpad?

    For those of you with 3/4 underquilts, what is the size of your foot pad? Probably in here somewhere but I'm trying to throw together my stuff for a one night getaway and don't have the time to browse. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

    mine isn't big at all ...i put mine in my footbox..this way there is no need to worry about slipping off it at night

    mines 16 x 13 inch ...it's part of an old Z lite pad..so it packs down small
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I usually use one of these three:

    Gossamer Gear Torso Length Night Light sleeping pad for cold weather or if I just want something more robust

    The thin backpad that is included in my ULA Ohm, (a pic is about halfway down the page) which is about the same size (a little smaller) than the GG pad for shoulder seasons

    Therm-a-Rest Lite Seat - fits perfectly inside my footbox but is smaller and doesn't always cover me up to my UQ, just to keep my feet warm. I usually use this in warmer climates when I don't think I'll need any insulation but end up needing a little. It always goes with me so I always have it handy.

    I made mine so it would fit in my pack on the side that is up against my back. It's two pieces of foam that measure 12 x 24 inches each. I taped the two long edges together. It is then folded it in half, and placed it in my pack. Hardly takes up any room at all. Unfolded it's 24 x 24 inches and has worked well down to 15-20 degrees anyway.
