    Nu-foam from Jo-Ann Fabric

    Has anyone tried this? Does it look like it will work in a SPE? Nu foam

    Ohh by the way, it was the 24" x 1" that I found. The 2" looked just to big.

    I went with what Brandon "Warbonnet Guy" recommended and it is fantastic for me so far. Here is the web site http://www.foambymail.com/Minicel.html and if you look down on the bottom is the MINICEL FOAM (3LB DENSITY) I bought the 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" not having a clue what thickness would work for me. So far all I have used is the 3/8" and this past weekend it got down to 36 degrees and I was still just fine even being a cold sleeper. I got the 1/2 Sheet
    27" x 80". They do get folds on the sides because of the curve of the hammock. I have thought about cutting V's down each side, but it really doesn't bother me at all.

    THAT is the tip of the week. They have a 72"x48"x3/8" pad for under $30. It's closed cell foam so it will insulate really well.

    This thread is dated, but I too ran across Nu-foam today and wondered how well it would work as thermal insulation in a double-layered hammock setup. I did a search here and this was the only mention of it that I could find. The stuff seemed tough and looked like it would mold around curves very well.

    I might have to add a second wall to my hammock.

    Keep an eye on Jo-Ann online. They often have 50% off coupons. They'll even honor them if you show them the coupon on the screen of your phone.

    I've done this.

    I wish I saw this earlier! The closest one to me is almost an hour away and I was just down the road all afternoon. My Black Friday list is becoming very interesting.
