Spent 2 nights out on the Southern half of the AT
in CT in my new "Jacks r better" Nest. Extremely enjoyable. I went for the

Set up was very easy with the directions. I was a little concerned about the
velcro opening working, But 1 of the Jacks replied quickly to my e-mail and
explained the dynamics to me.
I wore silk weight Golite poly long underwear. Both
nights were in the 50 degree range.
The 1st night I was amazed at how much more

2nd night we were on the highest hill in the area
1500', so it was a little breezy. Again toasty all night.
The only discomfort I felt was a slight coolness at
my back. It was'nt cold from the bottom because when I was on my side I did not
feel it. I think it must have been a damp long underwear top (from sweat) that
caused a cold spot.
Using their skins, setup and taking down was a
This was my nicest and warmest experience yet in my
Hennessey Ultralight A-Sym.
The Nest and No sniveling quilt are a 2 piece down
sleep system. A quilt for inside and an external quilt that attaches with
bungees to envelop the sleeping area. Hammock and sleep system combined are 4.44
