So my vacations are nearly over and have not been able to make up my mind on which road to take: supershelter or jrb nest. At first i was drawn towards the SS. But after a while of reading threads, and some dyi uq experiments with and old sleeping bag, im strongly considering the nest.
I assume the nest gives more heat coverage? than the ss. I like to move alot inside the hh and sleep in irregular positions, and I believe the nest would be more appropiate in this sense.
the compacted size of the nest is very appealing, also since it has other uses(quilt, vest), but i was wondering if compressing it everytime its packed(as well as by mistake sometimes compressing it too tight) doesnt affect its effectivenes after some time. By the way, would it fit in snakeskins?
Im also not clear on how the foot end velcro slit of the nest works (or the ss's entry slit for that matter). At JRB site, it says it "attaches to the Hennessy’s entrance hook and loop"... which h and l? In some thread here i read it velcroed(not the actual word used on the post, but can't find the thread) to the hh's entry slit velcro. I hope someone can post some images on how this part of the system works. Most places i hang have many little bugs that refuge under the tarp and on the hammock and in it if i let any openings on the slit, so how would this be affected?
Other than these questions, my only other concerns are price (comp to ss with overcover and space blanket) and color. Haven't seen or read anyone who uses it with the black side out though someone has recommended it.
