    What pad with Yeti?

    So I just pulled the trigger on a 3 season Yeti and am trying to figure out what the best pad would be for under my legs. Any suggestions? I have lots of different pads from my ground sleeping days and am willing to purchase some thing if anyone has a good recommendation. Also what temps have you gotten to with the pad and your Yeti? Here in the Bay Area 3 season usually keeps me good year round since I avoid the mountains in winter and hang on the coast.

    Thanks everyone!

    A piece of 1/4" or 3/8" CCF cut to size is just about right. Placed in the footbox of the top quilt, I find that it's good to the lower rating of most quilts.

    If you don't have a CCF on hand already, the JRB Torso Pad is a good choice.

    It depends on how big you want it. Between 2.5 and 3.5oz is probably typical.

    a better choice is this one from the Jacks:
    http://www.jacksrbetter.com/shop/torso-pad/
    but the walmart blue pad works too.
    If you're trying to save pack space the small inflatables also work:
    http://www.amazon.com/Therm-Rest-Tra.../dp/B004530UXU
    The thermarest is long enough for some folks but not all.
    And there are some hangers who put there empty backpack under the calves/ankles/feet; that method works well until a certain temp is reached.

    I've been using the GG 1/4 " thin light pad cut down to my size. No complaints in 3 years.

    The thinner version is good for the summer.
