Anyway, staying on topic, yep, Hennessy Supershelter is now in the camo pattern. The customer service rep emailed me and said that I could either return it for a brown one or keep it. They are going to update the website to show the new camo pattern so that others won't be surprised to see it as I was. So, that's the update on the camo pattern HH SS. Apparently it wasn't a mistake. That's how they come now. For me the SS seems to work at temps down to around 38 since that's the lowest it got on Friday and Saturday night. It might be good to go even lower than that but I was using my usual Montbell 25 degree UL SS bag with a Sea To Summit Thermo Reactor Bag with fleece long johns and top so I was comfortable. I Sleep cold but it was clear that I could have been comfortable to temps slightly lower than that. Not much mind you but certainly a little lower. OK folks, that's that. No more mystery on the HH SS Camo Pattern. It is what it is.
    Good to know! Did you use a space blanket on top of the pad, or just the pad alone? I use one of those Emergency Medical sumpin or other blankets. It not only boosts warmth a bit, but it surrounds most of the pad. I think it decreases risk of pad puncture if I grab the pad with the blanket around it. If that hole bothers you, use some seam sealer to repair it.
    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.

    No I didn't use a space blanket. I had one with me but I wanted to try the pad by itself. On Friday night I actually got cold until I got into the Thermal Reactor bag. That's why I used the whole package (sleeping bag and reactor bag) from the start on Saturday night and stayed comfortable. As far as the hole, I put a strip of good'ol duct tape on both sides of the hole to fix that problem. So, it's good to go until the next hole However, I like the idea of the seam sealer. It'll probably make any future repairs transparent compared to that glaring silver duct tape. Good suggestion.
