    I've used it with only a JRB stealth (sewn through) at freezing and been toasty.
    Clearly, based on many previous reports. And just based on 2.5" loft with plenty of baffles (good down control) and a very snug fit, it should be good to 20 for a lot of folks. I was always surprised at the 30 rating, seemed like it should be rated warmer than that.

    The Snugfit really is rated very conservatively.

    If you aren't used to sleeping in a Hennessy, the bugnet combined with an extremely snugly hung tarp really traps in heat well... too well for me during the summer (when I need it most due to bugs). My HH is on its way for a zipper mod before I head to Iraq again so that I can unzip the netting so it doesn't retain heat.

    Agree, a HH net ( and even more so, a HH Super Shelter top cover) holds in a good bit of heat and keeps a good bit of wind out. A snug tarp helps to. I am still amazed at MINUS 17 ( is that correct, what you meant when you said "17 below", you meant 17 below ZERO?), and warm enough to not even use the 30*F top quilt, with a 30*F (RATED, I realize it's warmer than that for most folks) Snugfit below.

    It just goes to show the vast difference in folks when it comes to cold tolerance. I'm not as cold natured as most folks I know. But still, I'm sure I could not use those items at any where near 17 below zero. 17above, maybe, but not below.

    BTW, love those High Uintas! I used to live in Layton, not far from them, and would camp up there often. What time of year was that when you and the scouts were up there? Where did you camp? Beautiful country!
    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'm a cold sleeper though.
    So, this is like the extreme opposite of USMC 2674's post! Now I am amazed that you could be cold at 26 with a Nest PLUS No Sniv under you, assuming no gaps and nothing compressed. That would be roughly 5" loft, about twice the Snugfit. With the 4" loft on my MW4, or with the 2.5"(rated, actually a bit more) loft plus a space blanket on my Pea Pod, I have been able to do ~ 10F and be reasonably warm.

    But you are probably like my wife. She would absolutely freeze trying the same thing!

    BTW, what did you have on top? Were you cold on your back, top only, or all over?
