Re: [Hammock Camping] Clark hammocks for a thru hike?
- I have a Clark Deluxe and highly recommend it. I too like the side
entry (makes for quick entry and exit), the outside pockets (not
impressed with the inner ones), the liner, weight, ease of setup and
takedown, different configurations possible, and the forest green
color (truly stealthy camping). I can't compare against a HH as I
have never slept in one. I have been checking E-bay for a couple
years looking for a Clark for sale but have never seen one offered to
date. I have seen HHs for sale. I would love to have another but I
suspect other Clark owners are like me: unwilling to give up their
Clark. Perhaps an ex-spouse will be awarded one in a divorce
settlement and sell it one day--I figure that or an estate sale is
the only way I will see a used Clark for sale. I see the absence of
a Clark for sale as a testament to their reliability. One thing the
newer ones have that mine does not is a rope at the head end of the
hammock that you can use to pull yourself and sleeping bag back up
toward that end should you hang a little improperly and do the
slide. They also have a larger overhead tarp as an option.
