If you haven't bought a quilt yet, look at the Jacks 'R Better quilt.

I guess it depends on what suits you, I personally perfer the no sniveling quilt.

I'm tentatively planning on an early northbound start, either late February or early March. How practical/impractical would the Hennessy Supershelter be for the weather I'll be encountering at that time.

Yeah, I know it'll be cold. I live in Millinocket, Maine - at the north end of the trail, so I know cold - but I haven't used a Hennessy and I haven't hiked the southern or middle portions of the trail yet.

Hi Magic City. I'll be starting late February this year. I've decided to go with my SD Lightyear tent for the cold months, and switch to my Hennessy Hammock at Mt. Rogers.
