This gear talk makes me really want to go on a long walk. On sleepy pads, don't you think they're essentially for blocking out the cold coming up from the ground?

Good point! They make up for the sleeping bag getting flattened under body weight. I think the comfort aspect is important, too, as good rest can make a hike more enjoyable and more productive.
