    how does it react though? is it like a closed cell pad? or like a yoga mat?
    I guess what i'm trying to ask is how does it stuff into your bag?
    Neither. It is NOT firm like a yoga mat, and looser than closed-foam. Think about a big old sheet of cotton, but much stronger. I can't describe it other than that. it stuffs like a fleece blanket. it is soft, and stuffable, but not compressible.

    If you go to JoAnns and look at a sheet of polyester baton, it looks and feels like that, but holds it shape a bit better.

    I stuff it loosely (not in a stuff sack) and stuff it down into the cracks and corners inside my pack. It is like a filler of sorts.

    I hope that helps.

    With a lot of this hammocking stuff, set-up is key and all the reading and research you can do might not help you get it right before you decide you don't like it and give up.

    Take it easy,
