    BGT Owner Review of the HH SuperShelter

    I have posted my Owner Review of the HH SuperShelter & OverCover to the BackpackGearTest site:

    http://www.backpackgeartest.org/revi...0Kurt%20Papke/

    Or:

    http://tinyurl.com/59g9xx

    Note that Hennessy did not supply the shelter - owner reviews are written by gear testers on equipment they purchased on their own.

    Those of you who follow this forum won't find a lot of new info there, but newbie hammock hangers or folks considering purchasing a SuperShelter may learn a thing or two.

    I'm always interested in feedback on how I could improve my reviews, but I'm not likely to update this report now that its been posted. That said, if I have some major new revelation over the next year I may add an amendment to it, so if you see a glaring omission, let me know.

    I hope you find it useful.

    --Kurt

    p.s. thanks to Adkpiper for his feedback on an early draft.

    Hi Kurt
    I have read a few of your reports and apps
    You always produce a nice report and must have lots of time to get out in the bush.
    All the best

    That's one of the most thorough BGT reports I've seen. Good stuff.

    Excellent report, Kurt! I enjoyed reading that.
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
