      Hi Jodi,

      LOL! Good to hear from you. I'm certain now that you too encounter -
      55 to -60 Celsius in January. I won't bother with exposed hammock
      camping in those temps, but it will be nice to see MORE data showcasing
      what these puppies can do well into some of the colder weather
      during "normal" winter use. I think the best anyone can expect is a
      collection of numerous reports from dedicated hammockers. There is no
      scientific standard for this testing I am aware of that the
      manufacturer has set forth for this experiment. If there is, please
      inform me, as I would be glad to fall in with the rest and sign up for
      the fun! :-) There simply is not enough data yet to say that our
      Supershelters will really do the trick or not do the trick in our
      harsher winter settings. IMHO, testing of this nature might have been
      considered before selling a "4-season upgrade product" to the masses.

      As I said recently, I am a hammock lover. Having used the Expedition
