    The under cover is pretty complex and I don't think anyone here has been able to dupe it.

    Also, I thought you ordered an Expedition?

    Over cover is just cut to the shape of the bugnet with about 6" added on. Add a way to attach it and you are good to go.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Why don't you make an under quilt instead. The super shelter needs the undercover plus a specially shaped foam pad to work. Not exactly DIY stuff (for most people).

    I'd say this is the logical choice. It is probably the reason that nobody has duplicated the Supershelter yet.

    I have thought about making a underquilt, thinking about finding a bag at a yard sale and making a pea pod type.

    I would like to make a undercover knock off and then I'll buy a replacement underpad for 35 bucks and should be set.
    If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.
