20200Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: Tent/hammocks (was California Hammocks
- Oct 5, 2009I know there's a lot of different opinion, but mine is that to really have the benefits of a tent with your hammock, I think the NX 150 Jungle Hammock, at www.junglehammocks.com is easily the best way to go (though it is also unfortunately quite expensive).
If you consider the cost of making lots of modifications, tarps, and under insulation to other brands, then the jungle hammock brand is not all that much more expensive, and you'd have a very difficult time trying to get all the features let alone quality that it offers by making your own modifications, without adding a lot more of weight than the weight of the whole set up of the Clark Jungle Hammock brand. I hate the high price, but I've tried other systems, and various modifications, and I'm convinced that the junglehammock systems are the best way to go, all things considered.

I just purchased the Lawson tent/hammock and waiting for it to come in the mail. Hope it works, looks cool in the pics. Google it.
