    zipper mod & HH SS?

    is the zipper mod (side entry) usable with the HH SS installed?

    i watched a video and the overcover and undercover get lashed together with the side tieouts.

    i guess if not, you could always use the bottom entry as the SS is designed for.

    I used mine that way and did not have the bottom entry. The zippers do get a bit buried in the SS, but you just don't run them all the way up.

    Having a zipper mod should allow you to make much better use of the SS( or any under quilt). You will be able to reach out and under to feel what is going on with the SS. To check for gaps or over tightening and loft compression of anything you might add down in there. And to make sure the pad and space blanket and added insulation are positioned exactly where you want them to be. I suppose the ability to do this might vary with which zipper mod you get.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I just got off the phone with Hennessy and they told me NOT to use the Overcover and the zipper mod together. The Undercover will work, but you won't have enough room to get in and out with the Overcover and zipper mod.
    Has anyone used the Overcover and the zipper mod?

    The Overcover would be the only problem I can see. I suspect you would have to rig up some sort of mod so that you could lift one side of the OC out of the way while you get in from the side, and then secure it back into place once you are inside.

    Or, if you kept the option of bottom entry, you could just do bottom entry when using the OC. There will probably be lots of times when you don't need the weight of the OC, when it is not way cold.

    I have a 2Q mod 2 on my hennessy and a Shamu UQ. I was thinking to order a hennessy over cover to make a bit of a micro climate in the hammock.

    I was thinking the maybe you could add a glove hook to the one lashing point on the side so I can flip it out of the way then get in and re hook the OC to the side.

    Overcover can work with the supershelter. I just clipped a small biner to the right diamond tie out point of the overcover. It's a simple task then to clip and unclip the tie out point to and from the hammock tie out point from inside or outside the hammock. If net/zippers are used with the overcover, they are secured from the inside after clipping the overcover.

    This said, I no longer use the overcover. Humidity in south Louisiana is a bit too high for any good effect to be had from it. Supershelter with emergency mylar sheet spread between the weathersheild and pad make up my standard bottom set. Synthetic mummy bag used as an overquilt with a footbox on top and I am set down to the upper 20's.

    on the topcover where the side pull out runs through, i cut the bottom side of the top cover and put to pieces of hook & loop. when getting out i unzip, undo the velcro and have no problems.
    i found this method easier than what TrailH4x suggested, i used his first. I just kept forgetting to grab the line or i dropped it.
