I use the Oware 1/4" pad, although I cut it to taper at the top and bottom and shortened it by about 10 inches, shaving the weight to 5 oz. It rolls into a cylinder about 4" in diameter, which I lash vertically to the back of my Granite Gear Nimbus Ozone pack.

I've used the pad in my HH down to about 50F. Two gripes: (1) The pad can crimp on you as you move around in the night, leaving you sleeping on a fold sometimes. (2) You'll get some light condensation between the pad and the hammock by the end of the night. I believe that another WhiteBlaze member has addressed the first gripe by cutting "darts" or "tucks" out of the pad to allow it to wrap around you a little better and reduce the tendency to fold.
