    Default Leadtime on new order?

    What is the leadtime for delivery/installation on a new order for a JK Habitat?

    Enjoyed a handful of nights sleeping in the Habitat on the way to Colorado and back.

    One night in the 20's with a bunch of wind camping in Great Basin National Park.

    Almost all good things to report.

    *Definitely easier to set up in the ice and snow then trying to throw your tent down in the dark.

    * The tent held up great during some serious gusts of wind.
    There was enough to feel the Jeep lean a little during the blow and then straighten up.
    (Weather report had gusts into the 40's and 50's mph predicted.)
    All through it it the tent felt rock solid. I had been wondering what sleeping up there in a good wind was going to feel like and it was a no worries enjoy your rest kind of evening.

    *Only thing I would report back on is that if you're planning on sleeping in winter temps you should probably add a extra piece of memory foam in on top of the what ever sleeping system you're using. A little extra insulation between you and the shell top goes a long ways.

    Cool shot, and thanks for the report. I'm curious, what sleeping pad are you using?

    I had a pair of Nemo Cosmos in there the night the photo was taken.
    After an even colder night (10 degrees F) in Capital reef I added an inch of memory foam from Mega Lo Mart on top of them.

    The Cosmos are attached with double sided velcro tape to the base.
    The foam I haven't cut down to fit perfectly yet and I'm still debating how to fit the whole kit together since it's comfy but not really required for the other 3 seasons.

    I don't see why not. Two up front and two over the rear section, no problem if you don't mind being close to each other. However packing gear for four people in a jk is not easy!

    On Cam's suggestion at OX12 I got the Cosmo Air "Insulated" version which I will be ready to put to the test hopefully very soon. It has an extra barrier to reduce cold/heat transfer. Of course I had to get the pillowtop that two Airs slip into as well . Hopefully everything won't be a huge hassle to deal with and I'll be able to store it all in the Habitat with some nifty straps or similar arrangement.
