    I like it. I don't have a rpoblem getting in or out but I do have the Explorer so it is a little bigger. For money I think it is best setup available for the HH. But it has to be used with the space blanket/ Heat Sheet. I've got a couple of vids on the Super Shelter in the vid section.

    I've taken it into the teens with a cheapo coleman 0* sleeping bag. You can buy lighter but I don;t think you can get better _for the money_.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    The only choices that come close to the price/performance of the SS is a KAQ Potomac and a JRB Shenandoah. Both are more expensive. KAQ, like SS, is synthetic. Shenandoah is down. I have no experience with a Shenandoah.

    I do have a KAQ and a SS, never a problem with either, have used both to sleep comfy in the teens, and have used them together in the teens.

    If I could only have one of them, I'd keep the KAQ.
