    Agreed. When they make a Vertex XL that uses the 270-sized bed I will sell mine and upgrade! It's still better than most and a great way to intro new hammocklrss who are not keen to hang solo.

    I have a hammock stand in my room and when I'm not hanging they lay inside my Clark NX270. They get to enjoy lounging in a hammock and with the top closed no dust or anything. :)

    I'm sure you won't mind my yanking the ends of your fingers off with a pair of pliers... You could scratch me with the nails you know and that might just be inconvenient.

    Their Alpinelite has served me very well. Fit and finish are top notch but for a $550 bag they ought to be. Interesting to see them branching out but it makes sense.

    Well, hopefully you guys get it or get refunds. Amazon put my $12.98 back. I still don't have a cutting mat. Argh! Oh well. The $25 deals are looking more realistic

    Another option, a tiny bit of matching waterproof fabric as a sewn in cap over the three loops then seal the edges. That should keep them from ever getting wet.
