    Sorry for all the noob questions, but what pad do you all prefer? I was originally thinking of going with a bigagnes bag that has the built-in bottom for a pad but since I'll be getting the double bottom, I'm back to choosing the appropriate bag and pad.
    The pad I have is GG1/4 cut down to 30x61... works well. but colder than 50F may need an UQ or thicker pad.

    I'm still very much in a "learning" mode about pad/UQ choices. I started with what I have and use for ground sleeping (a large NeoAir pad). I inflate it normally and it works quite well with my WM Caribou sleeping bag, though I noticed some chill where my shoulder (above the pad) contacts the edge of the hammock. A minor position shift in the hammock deals with that. I was comfortable with only the NeoAir and 35 degree rated sleeping bag at 48-50 degrees.

    I just got (2 days ago) a Yeti UQ from Brandon, and I'm looking forward to trying that out, though if used without the full length NeoAir, I'll need something under my legs and feet. My current experimental plans call for looking at combinations of NeoAir, Yeti and some CCF to find the best/lightest/easiest solution.
