    Trouble packing HHE with super shelter.

    Any tips on how to pack these things together? I could not get it back in the bag with the super shelter attached, and I don't really want to have to set that up every time I get to site.

    Any tips for how to stuff this thing?

    I watched the you tube video on the website, but it looks like Tom is just stuffing it into his backpack. That won't really work for me, but if that is the "best" solution then I guess that is the only choice.

    I don't think it is possible. The Supershelter is difficult enough to put back into its own stuff sack sans hammock nor accessories. You observed Tom correctly, in that he is simply stuffing the whole mess into the backpack, but I'm not fond of that method either.

    What I did was remove the OCF pad and stuffed it in the original stuff sack. The undercover stayed on the hammock and that went into the hammock stuff sack. Another method I tried but didn't like was to fold the OCF pad and put it in the bottom of my pack where it would be compressed.

    While the SS kept me warm, the aforementioned issues were enough reasons for me to invest in an UQ...

    I remove the OCF and roll the undercover and hammock together in the snakeskins.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Sometimes I have done this, packing the OCF into it's own dry sack or into a dry sack with other stuff I want to keep dry at all costs. Worked just fine.

    Or, I stuff the entire hammock/SS and maybe TQ into their own dry sack or stuff sack. Though that won't work with the sack the hammock came in. All you need is a large enough sack.

    Lastly, sometimes I just stuff it all into my pack. This works just fine also.

    If every thing- including TQ- is stuffer into one big sack, then when you get to camp and hang your tarp and then hang your hammock, you are ready for bed. Once the hammock comes out of the sack and is hung up, so is the SS or UQ and TQ.
    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 remove the foam pad and put the tarp, hammock, under cover and over cover in the snake skins. It will fit in my mesh pocket on the outside of my pack. This is tight in the snake skins but easy to setup and when I use this hammock that's all I'm after is quick and easy.

    got tired of having the ocf pad separate (not that it really took much effort to put the pad upon setup or remove it and pack it somewhere else), so i just have a big 'bishop' stuff sack for the whole thing, sometimes even leave the spaceblanket on as well.

    I have the Hex fly with mine, so I made a stuff sack for it. As far as hammy and SS, I take the pad out, and skin the rest, Roll it up like a coiled snake and put in in a stuff sack as well. The pad get rolled up and in to it's original sack. It doesn't matter to me if it takes 5 mins or 30 minutes to set up and tear down. I'm really anal about how I put things away and take my time. Everything has it's place.

    I stuff the whole set up (HH Exped + SS + emergency blanket +straps) into a Sea to Summit weatherproof sack which also works like a compression sack. Lrg size I believe. I put the tarp seperately into snake skins only because I don't use the tarp that often. Not the smallest packing option but sure beats just stuffing into your pack or trying to get back into original bags. Comes out to about a 950-1000 ci package. Nice thing about it you can conform the set up dimensionally to your liking such as either barrel round or flatter & longer plus it's waterproofed.

    Over the last weekend I was able to get my Exped Asym, under cover and tarp into the snake skins and stuffed into the HH stuff sack. Its tight, but I got everything in there. I took the OCF out and rolled that back into the SS bag. Oh yeah the over cover is in the stuff sack as well under everything else.

    So it will fit, though it takes some coaching. Now the trick will be to do that in the winter with gloves on!

    Compression Sack?

    I just got my SS last night. I was thinking of using a compression sack T. Hennessey style with sleeping bag, OCF, SB, SS and hammock together, snake skins for my tarp. I would put a hole on the bottom to feed my whoopie sling through. How has this worked for others?
