Just went through this myself,
I went with an ultralight, and the SS.
I did this for form and function.
I wanted the zipper, and have had a mod done on a Hyperlight which was fantastic, but didnt want to wait.
I wanted to get a smaller tarp, and the SS allowed for that. Also I have the option of using the SS as a UQ protector in the winter, and not using the pad in the summer, thus no extra weight.
So far I am happy with my decision.. There is a small weight penalty between the Hyper and the Ultra, but far less still than that of a Jungle.
IMHO of course
“Our ordinary mind always tries to persuade us that we are nothing but acorns and that our greatest happiness will be to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns; but that is of interest only to pigs. Our faith gives us knowledge of something better: that we can become oak trees.”
