thanks 2ply... i think a clear section would be great at times. i can imagin a cold winter night, clear stary night, warm & cozy in my hammock, extra protection from the wind & cold from the canopy.... sounds worth looking into.
The vinyl is thin and clear and I have not had any cold weather cracking. I use the Clark in colder temps now that I have lighter hammocks. Condensation was a problem when the shield was closed up, I now leave an open space in the weather shield at the head end for venting. This has solved most of the problem but it's nothing a small cloth wipe won't fix.
