    I have the SS and by itself it is certainly no 4 season rig. You will still need extra insulation below for colder temps. It is very effective at blocking the wind from below and the foam pad does provide some insulation. It holds other pads in place quite nicely between the foam and the hammock. I've used a 3/4 Ultralight Thermarest with it down to freezing temps.

    A few things I've learned...the elastic around the top of the undercover cause it to squeeze in around you causing the netting to brush against my face. But the squeezing probably helps keep your body's heat closer to you. When you get out of the hammock you have to put your foot through the hammock opening, then feel for the edge of the foam and slide it over so you can put your feet through the slit in the undercover that coincides with the slit in the hammock. It's not difficult it just takes a few extra seconds trying weave your way out (and in) of the hammock.

    That being said, I just got a JRB Nest and I'm hoping to try it out some tonight. The temps are expected to be in the mid to low 30's here in North Florida tonight.

    Stoikurt,

    Are you going to use the Nest with the SS ?

    Most say the undercover will compress the nest. I doubt I will use both but I may do some experimenting. In either case I'm pretty sure I will not use the underpad with the nest or nest and undercover combo.

    What about using the nest under it all, to prevent the compression?

    I'd like to hear a comparison of both from someone had used them.

    Thanks

    I had an Hennessy Super Shelter - I was good down to 40-45 degrees. I now use the JRB Nest and it is good down to 25-30 degrees.

    I do not have extra clothing becasue that is what I use for a pillow. Putting wet leaves and duff in the undercover did not seem like a good idea.

    I sold my Super Shelter to a person that hikes where it is warmer.

    I thought I would try using the Nest outside of the undercover but without the pad. I'm not sure the pad will add that much more and it will make it much more difficult to get in and out.
