Solid choice for a first hammock. I bought the original ultralight model from Clarks about 14 years ago. Since then, I've also had two other Clarks models (Tropical and NX-150), as well as a few other hammocks from other cottage industry manufacturers. The ultralight remains my favorite of the Clarks models. Getting off the ground is HUGE. In the past there were countless times when I woke up in a tent with my head in a puddle of water and everything inside soaked from ground water. I can honestly… Full review
One of the most important parts of any outdoor excursion is getting a good night's sleep. The Clark North American hammock is worth its weight in gold when it comes to knowing you'll be high and dry or toasty warm and out of the wind. The built-in bug netting and weather shield make it nearly impervious to foul weather, and that's before adding the included efficient, form-fitting tarp designed for jungle use. For anyone thinking of buying one of the better, high-end hammocks, consider any Clark… Full review
Fantastic and innovative product. I have the NX-250 with their largest tarp and hoop poles. I love it. Made area change to it that really helped. Took out rope and put in climbing loops with carabiners and tree straps from ENO. Goes up in less than a minute and carabiners do better job stopping water running down straps. Tarp would be better if it was about one foot longer and two foot wider, but it is unbeatable like it is. Hoop poles just a bonus. Goose, hope these help. I didn't put up tarp… Full review
I would recommend this to all people backpacking in harsh conditions. I got the standard sized tarp, but would recommend a larger tarp to stake out for cooking and such. I have used this in 70 to below 30 degree weather. I have found it warm, dry, and comfortable in all conditions. I would like to know how well it works on the ground, and have heard you can set it up that way. I pack my sleeping bag inside the hammock for drier set up and quicker set up. This is the easiest hammock I have had to… Full review
It does not get any better than this. Great features, great quality. A very well thought out piece of kit. The top of the line 4-season hammock. I will be using this next winter on a (hopefully) 40 below zero wind chill trip in Canada, with complete confidence. I wish this had been my starter hammock. I have wanted one of these for quite a while. After all, this is generally recognized as the very best there is. The built-in bug net stops even the smallest no see'ems during the buggy times or stores… Full review
Clark makes ultralight to four-season jungle hammocks.
