    CCF WBBB Footbox pad size?

    What size pad is suggested to cut for the footbox area of the WBBB?

    I have a 3s yeti - so I just want something to cover from yeti to Footbox area.

    thank you!

    Cut it big, then trim it down. And, the blue CCF pads are found in the camping section.

    I use an inflatable sit pad from REI for my feet-its about the size of the bottom of a chair. That worked for me this weekend.

    About foot size (haha).
    I would say the length would be from where your Yeti stops to the foot box and not wider then your back. Then you could use it a back pad if you use a frameless pack.
    I would say something like 2ft by 1ft.

    Hi SA,
    I actually set my wbbb up in the backyard and custom cut it to fill the footbox and overlap the quilt by 4"

    While between the layers I'd fold corners or use a big sharpy pen and mark sections to cut.

    It turned out pretty good.

    24"x20" and then simply curl it into a half circle and stuff it into the bottom of your top quilt. then it will stay underneath your feet as the swim around the footbox. at least that's what i do

    Mine is about 48" long so it covers my feet and has some overlap on my butt. I could probably use a smaller one if it were warmer, but in the Colorado Rockies I have to be prepared for freezing even in summer...so I just keep the 48" one.

    Great feedback - thank you everyone!

    I cut a piece approx 30X30
    cut an angle off one side so - which is the side I plan to angle towards footbox

    @wags - I like that idea too. might cut a piece for that & see which method I like
