    Super Shelter?

    If you are referring to the Super Shelter (SS) then yes it works very well. It has a bottom cover that acts as a wind barrier and then a top cover that acts like a wind barrier. The pad that comes with the system is good but you would want to add to it unless using a really good bag. the only problem I have seen with the SS is it gets to hot inside, or is that a good thing! anyway the SS works really good with something like a thermorest underneath or some form of air pocket. The setup that seems to work best is the bottom cover, supplied pad, then outer layer of the hammock ( I have a double bottom), then bubble pad that came with the Deep Jungle, then thermorest, then second hammock layer. after that it is up to you if you want to add something like a fleece liner to lay on and use a top quilt or just crawl inside of your sleeping bag. next just pop on the top cover. This system has unlimited possibilities, and mods, so you can't go wrong with it.

    Seems to be a great way to add a better temp rating
