    I had a supershelter for my HH. I admit I was surprised at how warm it was, but I found it changed the lay of the hammock, for me - it made it more restricted on the width, and I couldn't get as comfortable with it on. I use a yeti quilt from warbonnet now, and I like it much better.

    I set up my new HH Explorer with the SS last night for the first time and I slept very comfortably and warm. The night started at -10C and continually warmed to -1C by 7am. I did use the Emergency Blanket above the foam (as suggested by HH). My TQ is a Down Blanket that MEC heavily discounted and discontinued last summer (an awesome purple colour - bought 2!). Once everything was set up there is no fiddly adjustment factor.

    I do have a HG 0 Incubator for my WB BB 1.7 DL but after last night I see no need to purchase a UQ for my HH.

    Cheers

    I'm going to take some time, watch this thread for more input, do more homework, and then decide.

    Thank you guys for your help. Both, those that already posted and those that have yet to offer advice.
    Damian, I agree with cochinchine and some of the others - the HHSS is a simple, easy to use, inexpensive, and fairly lightweight system to use with a HH. I've had similar experiences with temperature limits, and frankly if you're going to go colder a simple CCF pad will do the trick. Score a +1 for no fiddle with the system, also.
