    Need advice for Hennessy Hammock

    I need some advice. I am new to hammock camping. I have a HH expedition. You enter from underneath through the velcro. Any recommendations for insulation? I need to stay warm to 30 degrees. Thanks

    I use the HH backpacker. I have found Hennessey's super shelter to be adequate. I have used it down to abou 20F. I use a top entry sleeping bag that is substantial.

    I'm using a Snugpak underblanket. Works to the mid 30's for me and might be lower but I have yet to reach that range. (SoCal does not often get that cold.) At $50 it is a good place for a newbie to start. Now if you have money to spare that are a lot of other options. But we like this as a starting point. Plus, it fits my Hennessy perfectly.

    I've got the Super Shelter and have used it down to 27 once and low 30s several times. While I am satisfied with its performance and price point, based on what I've read here on the forums, I believe a quality underquilt would be superior to the SS. One issue with the SS is condensation caused by the space blanket. It's never been enough to make me abandon the SS, but I do have to take it into account and allow things to air out before packing.
    I'm still looking for two perfect trees.

    JRB Nest seems like the perfect UQ for the Hennessy. The supper shelter seems great but I am always worried about moisture build up.
