I bought 2 Clarks - one for me and one for my son. I returned mine because I felt it was too small for me (6'3", 240 lbs) but my son loves his (5'11", 200). I still think the Clark is the best designed commercial hammock on the market. I just wish it was bigger and that the bug net and weather shield were fully removable.

And yes, american labor is way more expensive than the nickle-an-hour slaves used in asia. American manufacturing also has to incur the expense of safety and environmental laws. And if you rent or own a factory in the US you'll be paying property taxes to support the local school system, in addition to other taxes that support our quality of life.
