I never had any problems with my HH until I put the SuperShelter on it. That really changed the dynamics of the assymetrical cut. The undercover keeps me from getting a good 'diagonal' lay in the hammock and the pad isn't quite wide enough to keep coverage on (in my case) the left shoulder. I still had a good-enough night's sleep but the lay was more centered with the sides riding up, closing me in. If I had thought about it, it may have bothered me some.
As for the wind, I was on Mt Sterling (#38) and the wind was really howling. I enjoy the side-to-side sway of a hammock but the wind would cause the trees to 'shudder' giving me a ripple effect down the length of the hammock. That takes some getting used to. I also had fog set in, getting everything damp, especially the underpad. I'm going to look for a way to close off the ends of my Cat-cut tarp to help keep my a bit drier in those situations.
