I have the half dome 2+

I used it for 5 nights camping last month in AL and Fl. With 4 vents and the fly open I had decent ventilation. It was spacious for one and I imagine decent for two.

Best bet is to go with something like these:http://www.forcefieldbodyarmour.com/product/action-shorts/2354. You may need to go up a size in the pants, but worth it.:thumb

Sorry for the delayed response...

Micheal,

My measurements were 13.8" x 10". (25cm x 35cm) for the outside of the loop. The tubing is ~5.5cm around and ~0.6" wide.

Please let me know if you think the 60 will work.

They can do those things. FYI, for a few bucks more you would probably be better off with a 28xx Street Pilot.

Why?

Instead of packing it separately, I defalte the pad and roll it up within the bag. Then it is good to go the next night - unroll the bag and inflate the pad.
