    How do I keep my pad in place

    I spent 3 nights in my Hennessy Asym. I have a thermarest pad and I couldn't keep in place. It ended up scooting way down by my rear several times, and one night I woke up and it was mostly on top of me! Please help! I spent $100 for the pad, and I'm so frustrated I don't even want to use it.
    Thanks

    Let a bunch of air out so the mat can flex to the contours of the hammock.
    If that doesnt work for you...a double layer hammock can help with holding the pad.
    If thats not a possible solution, and your intent on keeping the pad, dab small stripes of silicone caulk across the bottom. The silicone will create sticky spots, once dry, to help hold the pad, to a point.

    Or sell it, and get a uq.

    There are some places that a uq won't work. So a pad may be necessary.

    I'm not saying the pad is useless. They can and do work for many.

    @dkperdue- Excellent fix to your system. I believe I will do the same.
