    Yes, I had the Superfly. I may not have hung it close enough to the Ridgerunner for maximum wind-blocking though. This was pretty early in my hammocking adventures, so if I went back now my set-up...

    I'm really not a tent fan. If I have to go to ground, I prefer a mid. Even four-man tents give me a closed-in feeling, and I prefer floorless. That being said, I have a very tough time sleeping on...
