That's where the HH Supershelter is helpful. The undercover adds a bit of wind and rain protection. If you do a search on the SS, you will find a lot of pros/con discussions here and at Whiteblaze.

I prefer no pad ( just the SS if needed), but a pad/SPE in the hammock is still a lot better than a pad on the ground, to say the least. I have not had any noticeable condensation problems with a pad/SPE and sleeping in fleece. Perhaps the fleece just made the condensation not noticeable?

get some $0.50 hand warmers and put them inside your sleeping bag, also fill up your canteen with hot water and wrap it in a tshirt that has kept me warm all night at 20deg....Hennessy for president
i put up a great coldweather sleeping bag video on youtube you can see it on my myspace page aswell www.myspace.com/douglasofficial or www.youtube.com/sxdxfan any questions emailme at email@example.com
My son just tested his new HyperLight with the Supershelter and OverCover.
22 degrees last night. Using a 10 deg. bag. Toasty warm.
Wow, that is excellent results. Was that with just the one SS OCF pad, or did he also use the space blanket as recommended by TH, and/or the kidney/torso pads, and/or added clothing?
