    I carry a small pad for the feet/legs due to using a partial underquilt. However I do not intend to go to the ground. Worst case scenerio, as I hike on the AT, in the event of gear failure I shall hike my butt into town.

    I only bring a pad when it's very cold...well...beyond the limits of my 3 season HG UQ. I still can't justify the 0 degree HG UQ but in reality it's probably only a matter of time.

    I always carry a torso length sit pad and consider where I'm going, 99% of the places I would go I'd be all set- if not and let's say no trees, equipment failure or my insulation isn't cutting it then it would just be a night of sucking it up. Two or three years ago I went to the ground in solidarity with a friend who I was taking out- her 1st time and it got pretty raw, snow, freezing rain and I admittedly picked I poor site cuz I was tired and didn't want to hike up a bit higher. Was near Money Brook at Greylock probably worst cold spot in whole park. It sucked, it was my bad and I did know better, lesson learned. I make better choices today especially when taking others out who I want to continue enjoying swinging with nature.

    2'x2' blue foot/sit pad.

    I decided last weekend that if I think it will hit <32F I will carry full blue Walmart pad for added warmth (to compliment my 3/4 UQ).

    When it's really cold, I bring a pad for under my feet.
    But never, ever a pad for the ground. If life is that bad, I'll just pile up some leaves or pine needles as a makeshift bed.

    I use a small pad under my feet as a partial UQ user for all but coldest weather.

    I have a down-filled air mattress (Exped Downmat 7) if I need to go well below zero to supplement a JRB MW4 UQ.
