    Help Me Identify My Clark Jungle Hammock Model

    I recently purchased a Clark Jungle Hammock second hand. I don't have pictures yet; but, I am hoping that, if I describe it appropriately, someone can help me identify the specific model. I have searched for tags and can find nothing. The flap on the built-in stuff/storage sack has the words "The Clark Jungle Hammock". The top material at both the foot and head is green. The underside is black. At the head portion there are underside compartments (one on right and one on left) made from green material. It has bug netting with a zipper running the entire length/circumference of the netting. There is a D-ring at both the head and foot which I assume is a tie off for lifting the bug netting. I think that pretty much describes it. Oh ya, I laid it out lengthwise and it measures about 7' in length. Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like the "tropical".

    Hello
    Are there flap covers on the side bags near the head?

    Hard to beat a good picture or two

    Thanks so far guys. No flap covers woodstove. Your statement of the obvious regarding pictures is appreciated. I did, and still do, intend to get pictures once I hang it, I just keep forgetting.

    I'd say your best bet is to go to the Clark Hammocks website, go to the "Jungle Hammock" section, and take a look at the four models they have (pictures and descriptions) to see which one most resembles your hammock.

    Thanks for all input and attempted guesses based on my basic description. I'm wondering if it is a tropical ultra. I finally got it hung and took some pictures.

    Yep. Looks like it. The "D" rings are for elevating the bug net. See link...

    Well I tried it out and it won't work for me. Their website says max height for occupant is 6'4"; but, at 6 feet tall, 210 pounds it just doesn't work for me.

    Sorry that hammock did not work out for you. Based on the shorter bed length, no pocket flaps and the type of bug netting its an old Clark Ultralight model. I used one several years back and at 6 foot tall it never really worked for me. Could not sleep but a couple hours and wanted out of it. Clark made them that way about 10 years back. Depending on which model at the time the bed lengths about 7.5 feet long.

    The current Clark bed length for this type of hammock is 8.5. As a side sleeper curled up I find that extra foot of length works well and I can sleep straight through the night. Legs stretched out its barely long enough for me at 6 feet tall.
