Good stuff. Try raising up the hammock foot end at the tree strap....may help keep that pad from popping out on you.
Try putting the pad in your sleeping bag. I've got a thermarest backpacker lite pad that I have had good success with inside a Eureka 15 degree mummy when I first started hammocking. Also, the rubber shelf liner stuff works wonders keeping things from sliding around.
Thanks for the tips
Yeah, I had it marginally higher but likely could have had it a couple more inches higher. Ultimately I think that my full length pad and relatively short Grand Trunk UL maybe aren't the best match - no matter what it just barely fits and both the head & foot end of the pad end upright on the edge of the hammock. Wonder if having a torso length pad in the SPE and a separate pad/reflectix piece for my feet would help - might be easier to reposition anyway.

The shelf liner might be the way to go until I can get the double layer hammock done. I think I've seen a few dots/lines of silicone mentioned too.
