    What method did you eventually work out to attach the open-cell insulation to the bottom of the hammock? Did you just hold it up with the undercover?

    I use open cell foam and the undercover of the HH Supershelter system for a similiar insulating system. What is the compressed dimensions of your open cell foam pad?

    The compressed dimensions that I am enquiring about are those of the packed open cell foam pad in it's compression bag.
