    Speer stopped working with hammocks a while back, but several of his products are now sold by:
    http://stores.tttrailgear.com/-strse...Categories.bok

    But, the SPE is no longer made.

    The 4x4 has 4 sections to hold pad inserts on each side, compared to 2.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    basic SPE is a cloth envelope for your pad. It's easy to make your own measurements by starting with your pad. I have a Walmart 20 in handy now. So 20 in for the center pocket plus some allowance for the thickness of thepaad plus room to slide it in. Say 22 in for a 20 in pad width. Run a tape measure behind your shoulders and check total width by looking at what width you want to insulate. Sitting here now 32" looks good. So two 6" wings. That translates to 8" pockets. For length measure yourself knee to neck. A bit longer if you want and are not using a bottom opening Hennessy. ;-) The wings can be shorter depending on how you sleep. The idea is to have foam between you and the hammock sidewall. I prefer polar fleece for the top as it feels better and seems to eliminate most condensation problems. Nylon on the bottom lets it slide a bit, good in this case. Lay out the material and sew the center pocket. Try the pad. If the pocket is too wide you can rip one side out and resew to tighten it up. Or do a sample small cross section out of scrap. I like to sew lengthwise and across the bottom. Leave the top open. Turn it inside out when done to bury the edges. If you want to get fancy do a cover for another piece for a foot pad/situpon.
