Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for keeping your arms and hips war I bought this for use with my REI 3.5 pad, unfortuanately, my pad is wide and the ENO Hot Pad is not. I have yet to do this, but I will be splicing a piece on the back so it fits my pad, other than that, it is well made and serves it's purpose in a hammock - it keeps your arms and hips warmer as it insulates that part from the cold. As I just bought the pad, then switched from tent to hanging, I wanted a way to use the gear I had rather than spend more on underquilts, etc. This is the only pad holder I know of. It would work on the ground, for those who tend to come off the pad. I don't backpack, so it's up to you if the weight is worth the comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm n Toasty First of all, I'm no hardcore extreme hammock camper. I do want to be able to have the gear to do day trips and camping trips that in most weather conditions I can enjoy the hammock experience. I bought this product to use with sleeping pad for the added protection against the cold. The actual test was early morning mild winds , temps in upper 40's. Test 1- hammock only, result was chilly uncomfortable. Test 2 - sleeping pad only- much better, no more cold backside, however shoulders and arms felt wind gusts. Test 3 - pad plus ENO hot shot. Even more improvement. You can really tell a difference on arms , shoulder and hips! This product is a keeper for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It really does work! Just spent the first night with this in my hammock. It was down to 55 and it truly did help keep my thighs and arms warmer. I know that some DIY folks have made contraptions similar to this that might cost less and might be lighter, but I'm not that crafty so I'm ok with paying someone else to do it for me! It is a little costly for what it is but it does work as intended. And I wish it were a little lighter, but I guess I'll have to make my own to get that:-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keeps arms warm, but still moves around I bought this pad to use as part of a multi-tier insulation system for my hammock camping. I add this to my pad for hammock camping that isn't cold enough for my underquilt. I also use the pad system with my underquilt when the temps dip too low for the underquilt to handle alone. The hot-spot works very well in terms of keeping my arms and hips from developing cold spots. The foam insulation is the perfect balance for weight and effectiveness. I find that my sleeping pad still has a tendency to move around... even with the hot spot. I am going to sew a sleeping pad sleeve into my hammock to deal with this and render the issue moot. If you are looking for something to prevent cold butt syndrome on your hips and arms, this is the ticket! If your only concern is that you have a sleeping pad that slides around, this won't make much of a difference. All in all, I find that it is a decent piece of gear that is worth the money I spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job Well Out a month ago at 28 degrees and cold with Thermarest only and cold. Added Wings last week and warm at 21 degrees. The last little bit to make the system work well in cold weather

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a pad but still a great product This is a great product but i want to make this clear, THIS IS NOT A SLEEPING PAD, but it keeps my hips and arms warm and does what it's supposed to do

Will this work with a Thermarest Z-Rest or Z-Lite pad?

Asked by: AT MD
​This is compatible with the Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol Sleeping Pad.

how compact will this roll or fold up? can it be taken up the AT? thanks for any info

Asked by: Tn Fert
The HotSpot​ can fold up to be fairly compact. When folded it is approximately the size of a folded kitchen or hand towel. The wings are made of closed cell foam and could be rolled, but would pack smaller if folded. It certainly could be taken on the AT as part of a hammock setup.

Is this just the wings or the mat as well? Like the picture shows.

Asked by: cassidy32506
Just the wings.  It has a couple of wide straps in back for your own pad to slip through.  A regular self inflatable thermarest fits like in the illustration.  A wide closed cell foam pad may not fit without modification.
