    Those are pretty nice pads. Every so often, WM gets something right, in spite of itself.

    Another Wal Mart pad???

    I use a pad under my knees & feet and have found that textured pads help me feel the pad, even while wearing heavy socks. It's not uncomfortable at all, but I can tell if I've slid off the pad or the pad has moved. With heavy socks, I have a hard time telling the difference between the smooth, stretched nylon of the hammock and the smooth top of a regular pad.

    Well that explains a few things why pads disappeared a few months ago.
    There was an Old Man with a owl,
    Who continued to bother and howl;
    He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
    Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl

    the texture looks identical to many yoga mats. Given the weight, I bet that's what it is.

    I thought that too, but because of the Microban on it.

    Bummer, can't seem to find them online. That would make a really nice size pad to use with my WBRR.
