Hennessey 3 season shelter
I just ran into a 3 season hennessey shelter (very reasonable). it includes the pad and under cover, no top cover. only bought because price was right. my question is i have a nest now, good for me to about 40 degrees by itself. was wondering if i use this under the nest what temp would i be able to get to. has any body tried this? i have a blue pad that i use with nest that will get me to 20 degrees using pad in hammock and nest under hammock. i would be okay with this set up but part of my dilemna is i use a packa and granite gear ozone pack with pad straped to back of pack.this makes the packa a very tight fit to walk in. my thinking was if i use the hennessey 3 season shelter it would be in a smaller pack that would fit in my pack. also i may not need the pad that they supply with the system if just the under cover under the nest would bring me to 20 degree temp range. i'm doing my thru starting march 27, 2007 and trying to figure my best set up like all others hoping to hang from geogia to maine!!
Do not combine the HH Super Shelter and JRB Nest
Strike three.... the preveous posts are right on.... putting the JRB Nest inside the HHSS will reduce effectiveness....Please do not do that.
The HHSS was designed to fit tightly to the hammock, with a 1/2 open cell foam pad for insulation....
The JRB Nest requires approx 2.5 inches to fully loft...you will reduce effective loft to 40-20 percent by placing it in this confined space.... it will be at its worst under the butt where the HHSS fits the tightest...
The reduced loft will be further exacerbated because the body moisture passing thru the Nest will be trapped by the non-breathing, non-vented HHSS silnyl bottom...colder weather further amplifies the condensation problems...Should you not be able to field dry/air this moisture out, it will accumulate... this will add weight to your pack and reduce the insulating value of the down.
