    A pad under your legs is no problem, it stays where you put it. If the hammock is a double layer like a BlackBird, the pad can be put in the pad sleeve if needed under your torso.
    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.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    I think it's worth pointing out that there are 2 Yeti models, the 3-season Yeti and the Winter Yeti. Each will have different attainable lows.

    Good point...I have the winter version and you can review my thought on it in this thread here

    I think that the original thoughts of 0-10*F was pretty accurate "for me"
    Admittedly, I'm a warm sleeper but I'm confident that my set-up is good to 0*F...Your results may vary depending on your temp requirements.

    What kind of leg pad did you use at those temps?

    EDIT: Never mind, I see the info at the link you referenced:

    I've been to zero a few times with the Winter Yeti, no problems. I'm fairly certain I could go to at least -15F to -20F with that thing, but haven't had the opportunity to verify that yet. My biggest problem with the Winter Yeti is it, at times, is too warm. I'm still learning how to get a good vent with it, but I'll figure it out. I've camped in about every condition I can find (wind, sleet, snow, etc.) and it has done marvelously so far. I've even gone so far as setting the tarp up high off the ground to let the cold and wind in on purpose (testing is fun!), good results each time.

    3 Season Yeti is pending, but I think it will be good down to the 20s based on the way the Winter model has preformed. I'm hoping it will give me a broader temp range and I'll be able to use the Winter Yeti on those really cold trips. Still just using the GG pad under the legs.
    Trust nobody!
