Re: Clark's Jungle Hammock
- Skylander Jack,
Glad to see that someone that posts on this board has this hammock.
I have been curious about it as I think it was designed specifically
to be a cold weather hammock. Will be looking forward to your
experience with it, especially in cold weather, please take a
thermometer with you. Have be real curious about the bottom pockets
and how well they work as insulation. What part of the country do
you live/camp in?
