"Great weekend in The Pares and Nubé at The Red! Had heavy thunderstorms and didn't get the slightest bit wet!!"
"I tell you what. I got my Nubé in October of last year. I went backpacking all winter across the east coast. I camped out on some pretty cold nights. A crazy winter storm over in Rhode Island tore the Nubé pretty good. I emailed the company and they paid for shipping to send it back. They patched it all for me. And promptly returned it, I've been camped out in it for the past two months in Nevada, living out of it and my backpack. I'm in the high Sierra Nevada's, Lake Tahoe. I've been in the freezing snow, the rain, and the dry desert heat with this thing. It's done me solid! I have the pares hammock, the nubé and the winter wind guard (Winter Barrier). This is a solid product for sure! Haha, literally put my life in the hands of Sierra Madre Nubè, many nights. I haven't tested the ground set up with the floor accessory, probably when I'm done being a bum I will invest in it. The company also gives part of the money to a fresh water project in South America, where one of their facilities are. Your company is awesome and I am proud to be using it!"

"Went on a 70+ backpacking trip with a group to Isle Royale during the last week of August for 7 nights hanging in my Nubé and Pares. Dealt with a couple storms at night and some rain one day. At one site I set it up on the ground and used the Nubé Floor as there was one spot to hang and the other guy hanging didn't have an ideal ground setup for his in the rain. Love the versatility of the Nube! Been loving it since Memorial Day and haven;t used my previous setup since. Can't wait to see what you have with the upcoming Fly-Lite and other future products(would love to see an SMR underquilt ; ) )"

Definition of Polar Vortex: an excuse to test out my Sierra Madre Research Nubé Winter Barrier. Now I know there's no excuse for not hammocking in the northern rockies. The wind chill was -20 below in Missoula, Montana when I woke up toasty in my Pares hammock this morning. Yes, that's my front yard. It was a school night. Still got the kids to school on time. This is why I bought an indoor/outdoor battery powered thermometer...to warn me if I'm going to die.

"My buddy and I both got Nubés and have put them to good use so far. We have done everything from urban setups at work, camping in the back woods of Old Lyme, CT (haven’t gotten lyme diasese yet!), Peddocks Island, MA, East Burke, VT, and just about any chance we get! Oftentimes when we attend parties we just set up our Nubés and spend the night in someones yard (Don’t drink and drive!!)."

"Spending time with my girls at Alley Pond Park, NY. Getting our little one into the outdoors and hammocking early... She loves it so far. We can't wait to put our Nubé shelter and ourselves to the test in the field. Thank you SMR for this great product!"
