Well, this last test was certainly different!
Had the opportunit for an afternoon nap. Temperature was 23 degrees with a slight breeze. Instead of two pairs of socks, I had one, and instead of two pullovers, I had just the fleece. Wore a cotton t-shirt. Everything else was the same: no tarp, HHSS installed, bubble pad inside hammock, and... I ROASTED! After about an hour I had to vent.
Haven't had any condensation with the SuperShelter, wore the bag quilt-style, feet do seem a little higher, but a line level on the ridgeline shows the head-end being a bit higher.
I'm pretty sure it was just the bag not being sealed around my neck and shoulders on the first hang, because this time I made sure, and felt no cold at all. One thing different this time was I had just eaten lunch, and probably stoked the internal heater. It will take some tweaking to find the right setup, but I'm loving it. I plan on testing with different types of clothes and insultation arrangements. It would be nice to take the hammock down to lower temps.
I did notice something neat though. I unzipped the bugnet just a little and stuck my hand outside. It was cooler! The bugnet retains a little bit of heat. Not as much as an overcover would, I'm sure, but it does help a little.
Thanks for the suggestions.

The suspense is thrilling me!
