hh supershelter question?
what up all!!
i have both the hennesy EXPEDITION ASYM and also the ULTRALITE BACKPACKER A-SYM. i want to camp this winter, how ever the supershelter looks confusing. how do you get in with the pad and the under cover attached. also is it a pain? before i go buy it i want to know if its worth the money on the product. thanks
I like it. I don't have a rpoblem getting in or out but I do have the Explorer so it is a little bigger. For money I think it is best setup available for the HH. But it has to be used with the space blanket/ Heat Sheet. I've got a couple of vids on the Super Shelter in the vid section.
I've taken it into the teens with a cheapo coleman 0* sleeping bag. You can buy lighter but I don;t think you can get better _for the money_.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

The only choices that come close to the price/performance of the SS is a KAQ Potomac and a JRB Shenandoah. Both are more expensive. KAQ, like SS, is synthetic. Shenandoah is down. I have no experience with a Shenandoah.
I do have a KAQ and a SS, never a problem with either, have used both to sleep comfy in the teens, and have used them together in the teens.
If I could only have one of them, I'd keep the KAQ.
