    Insulation Question

    Hi all. I've just joined the forum, although I have been a lurker for a while, and have found quite a lot of useful info. However my question is:

    I have the Hennessy Expedition Asym Classic (standard tarp), with SuperShelter and OverCover. This is used in conjunction with the UnderPad and Space Blanket. However I was toying with the idea of using the Radiant DoubleBubble Pad also, to give a little extra insulation during the winter months. Where would be the best position for this; sandwiched between the SB & UP or between the UP & UC?

    I will be going out to Snowdonia for the last two weekends of April and also again in the May day bank holiday weekend, so I'll have plenty of time to try it out....although the weather is now starting to get a little warmer, it is the UK afterall and so is pretty unpredictable at the best of times

    Hope you can help.

    I'd ditch the space blanket and try the radiant pad above the UP (open cell foam pad). Having the space blanket would be redundant.

    Ok, thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if the SB was still needed or not.
    I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars.
    The rest I just squandered.
