I finally have pics to my HH fleece pad!!

Next to be finished: my HH "wings" which are 1.9 oz Ripstop Nylon extentions to the fly- 9" wide, and may be removed. Altho it may sound strange, they are attached via velcro\ 1 guyline to the hammock, and may be tilted to almost any angle for superior weather protection....pics to come soon!

Nice pictures. I like how you showed the details on the suspension system.

So how about weight and how cold you have used it? Details!

It weighs just under 11oz, and im usually quite a cold sleeper. I also stuffed my fleece between the hammock and the pad- my feet instantly started to sweat under my socks even tho it was just over 40 F outside! Im thinking of abandoning the side shock cordage and just looping the ring of the hammock to the pad- it might keep it better tensioned and allow for better warmth for your butt.

That sounds good. I'm thinking a underquilt or fleece that WORKS and weighs less than a pound could be a usefull system.

im sure you could even "go luxerious" and make it 2 layers thick around your butt and feet to make sure you dont getcold, and still be under a lb.

I'm looking at your diagram to see what you are doing. Looks like the same thing could have been accomplished by simply sewing a new tie out a few inches up at the corners of the tarp, so if you wanted the drape over, you could change where the tarp is tied out from, then use a simple weight like a shoe at the original tie out point.

I have constructed something like that out of an old down bag, lt wt fleece and silnylon. I will be trying it out next week. I will let you know how it works and if it is really worth the weight & hassle. Hammock Hanger
