    As i just got my SS system I'll just fire in a related question here..

    Has anyone tried using dual HH underpads for added insulation ?
    (as those things are pretty thin (or atleast thinner than i thought they would be))

    You could add as many pads as you think you need. The comfort would be the same but I am sure much warmer. I have no way of knowing if 2 pads would be twice as warm as one or not, and I have not tested two full length pads, but I feel sure it would be a lot warmer. But how much?

    What I have done, however, is add an HH kidney and torso pad. This at least doubles (or more) thickness right where you need it most. And it is indeed much warmer. I think Ramblin Rev has been comfy at 12F by adding these small kidney/torso pads. It would probably be more weight efficient to do this and add a CCF leg/sit pad( or your pack) inside the hammock, under the legs, only when needed for cold legs.

    Or you can just put whatever is left over- that won't be needed as part of your sleep system for top warmth- between the one pad and UC. Like fleece jackets, or even down vests, etc.. Believe me, MUCH warmer. And you might well have something with you to use for this anyway. I have been toasty at ~ 15F by adding a thick down vest and fleece jacket.

    Don't forget the space blanket. Also, I have found that one pad to be a lot warmer than it looks, especially when used with the space blanket.
    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.
