    I would personally go with the 3 season Phoenix. But that is just me. YMMV.

    What we're talking about is a silnylon undercover with a 5/8" open cell foam insulating pad supplemented with a space blanket

    The undercover will cut wind and provide a dead air space. The foam pad traps more dead air and fits snug against the bottom. The space blanket adds reflectance and a vapor barrier.

    I use a cloned undercover that is also a hoodless poncho. You can buy silnylon or breathable ripstop undercovers from 2QZQ for $35. Check out Garlington Insulators too. A Garlington Insulator is a light trash bag with a folded space blanket inside. They are surprisingly effective, super light and dirt cheap. I turned a space blanket into a bag using double stick tape and put folded space blankets or polyester batts inside. That works better yet.


    I bought a Hennessy foam insulator to use with my undercover clone and it works for me. My testing has only been in 50F+ summer nights, so I can't give you a low temp rating. The space blanket adds a lot. Do try the AMK HeatsSheet space blanket as it is much quieter and tougher. My general impression of the foam insulator is that it is good for summer camping; I wouldn't be afraid to use it into the 40F+ range. It is very light and compact and it does need to be used with an undercover.

    As of this writing Arrowhead/Kick *** Quilts has smaller synthetic underquilts on sale for $80 http://arrowheadequipment.webs.com/a...s/show/2575062. That with a 2QZQ undercover will give you a very effective system. I would recommend the breathable ripstop version unless you are taking on a lot of wet windy weather. You can still add a space blanket or Garlington Insulators for colder weather--- same with the SuperShelter.

    Any of the non-breathable components should be used with an eye to condensation. My tests have shown very minor condensation, but I'm out on the final verdict until I see more varied conditions.

    ive enjoyed my supershelter. no condensation, no cold butt. I know an underquilt might be easier but I enjoy my supershelter enough to stay with it for awhile.
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    I have had great results with my super shelter, but I could not pass up this quilt. I have never tried an under quilt, so this will give me something new to play with.

    I am also thinking of trying the quilt with the supershelter if I go out when it is lower than the 30's.

    Tried The HH SS a few times now and really like it. It has been mostly nice summer nights but with chilly winds and in mountains though. No idea what the temp were, I suspect around 10-12C, and it was perfect just with the UC and foam pad.

    I plan to use it in winter and I am a bit nervous when I compare it to these big fluffy UQ ;-)

    My only -big- disappointment is that the UC is made to fit bottom entry HH, so you have that big stupid oddly closed slit instead of a perfect cocoon... I really think HH should make 2 different models.
