Im thinking about getting another HHSS. I sorda miss mine. I find it lighter for a winter setup over my 0degree quilts. And I like how it lets my use all the tieouts.
I also find its effected less by a cool breeze that may hit it. If I get another one I will make a mod to my over cover to make it easier to unclip one side for easier entrance . I have also had no issues with condensation.

But, while there are several folks who simply could not get the HHSS to work for them, there is now a fairly good size number for whom it not only works, but many of Y'all do much better than I ever did. You and some others at ~ 20F, some others actually below 20, a very few by a good bit below 20F. I think I started a thread recently pointing out how COTW (CryoftheWild) has used his well below zero, HHSS alone. Amazing! The reason I got the HH kidney/torso pads was part of my 1st attempts to push the SS below 30F, which a couple of tests had seemed to establish as the absolute bottom comfort limit for me. So now you guys are now the Gurus! Still, I get a kick when I see others do even better than I have done with this bottom insulation.
BTW, I have found the over cover adds a lot of warmth and wind resistance. About 15*F added on top. But I think you do need to pay attention to the humidity
Interesting that you find it lighter than your zero quilts. But, what temps are you able to stay warm to with the HHSS?
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.
