I see Tom Hennessy has introduced his insulation add-on for his line of hammocks.
for those so inclined.

The supershelter seems to work. I didn't get a good, low temperature when I used it at Trail Days, but it does seem to hold heat in. Maybe this winter up in the Smokies I can try one out a little bit more in-depth.

Used it without the underquilt in Michigan last April. Night temp was 32.5,slow steady rain all night.Had a 40 degree bag, no pad. Sometime in the night my back got cold. I put on longjohns a fleece vest and knit hat. Was cosey the rest of the night.

Reports from this sight is why I made the switch. No regrets so far.

So you used the supershelter down to about freezing with only some add on clothing?

Yes. Forgot to mention the wool socks and cotton gloves. Usually if I can keep my trunk warm the rest is ok. But I may be a little more used to the cold than most.
As a kid my winter bag was my summer bag with some newspaper and a blanket for extra insulation. Then long jons ect.
I also work outside in the Michigan winters, so by spring 32 is a summer breeze.
