A ground pad is required for all attendees. This is not a comfort item, the ground pad adds a layer of insulation between you and the cold ground below. Your ground pad may be any military ground pad or any non-open cell foam commercial pad in a subdued color. The original German folding pad is a good option in particular since it is an integral part of the ruck sack forming much of the structure.
