Wooooohooo, it's Christmas in June! I'm in !
DF, should not be a problem to get to 30* with a PLUQ and maybe 25* with your bag. I have made several PL, what I did is take a PL and doubling it over, sew channels for cord and it took me down to...
An Arctic Roadrunner welcome, best milkshake ever!
Okay those that have tested the one piece clark z liner what are the lowest temps that you've tested to that and stay warm?
Please also indicate wind strength, and any other clothing you had on?
I have 40* TQ and UQ and 20* TQ & UQ , can mix and match to meet my needs. Down packs down really small.
Have some DIY PLUQ we made with Climashield APEX 5.0, folded over in the middle. Works...
I'm 6' 3" -- 240 lbs and don't have a problem with space with my TX-250.
I'm with Trambo, I would go with a quality under quilt 1st, could always use a modified sleeping bag as a top quilt. You probably already have a sleeping bag you could modify.
I'm in, for sure!
I like the vertex tarp, larger the better if you ask me, and I don't think it would fit in the built in compression sack. I keep them separate for the reason you mentioned.
I went with the Tx-250, for exactly a lot of the reasons mentioned here. I do not see value in the z-liner pads, they don't have a lot of good reviews, I would not have a lot of clothing to...

Ok, outside of the video reviews has anyone who bought a DD Jungle hammock have anything to say about the hang of this hammock ?
Thanks for the report, I grew up in that area and spent a lot of time hunting & fishing all over. Been 30 some years since I've been to Claudius Smith Den.
I have always found rattle...
Yes Clark says they are synthetic, Climashield from what I understand.
I do use a HG 3/4 UQ that works fine, I am looking to do a DIY Using the Velcro on the TX 250 and was hoping someone had a...
Dem & BC,
I am looking for pics of the Z-liner TX250 , it is one piece I believe and Completely different than the Z-liner for the NX 250.
At least Clark's Website describes them as being...
Anyone have pics of Clark's Z-Liner T-250 ?
I don't know that you want the stakes & poles inside with the Hammock, could rip something. Don't know I want my tarp in with my hammock, it most always is wet with dew I use mesh...
Vertex Seems to be back up now ? Don't see much of a change, wonder what they changed ?
FYI, I bought a x-large (15" x 9" flat measured ) hammock 2 open end bag from Marty at Wilderness Logic as a stuff sack for my clark tax-250, it was a little tight so I gave it to my 15 year old for...
Very, well done! Good to see several Asheville people on HF. The Army Surplus on Smoky Park HWY has some good deals too, i picked up several used for under $10.00 each.
Special thanks to Paul at Arrowhead Equipment, all I have had is great experiences with my orders !
And to top it off ...
I got drawn off Arrowhead Equipment Facebook page and won a goodie...
I have a Clark tx-250 , went with the tx because I liked the idea of using an UQ instead of pads and I like the screen on the head area. I am not disappointed it sleeps my 6' - 3" , 240 lbs extremely...
Thanks, Flounder looking forward to putting it to use!
paypal payment sent.
I'll take it
Second is a Hammock Gear 40 degree Phoenix torso length down underquilt. I've had this for two years and I've never used it, so I figured I'd get it to someone who would. I've...
You may want to check out Lake Powhatan, sometime, great place to hike, bike & swim that is kid friendly.
I really do appreciate a good rain sleeping in the Clark, something comforting about it! Welcome to the new world!

No really, I got a cheap SG tarp just for that,

days, makes life dryer!
Any update & pics ?
My son just bought a DD Frontline, how did it work in the rain & wind for you ?
A lot of great info, these videos have just saved me a lot of time!
Thom, What is the model number of your Janome?
My wife has a Necchi model 535FA, I have taken possession of:shades: she claims this model won't handle the thickness of 2 layers of a PLUQ.
Will the Singer 15/91 or New Home Janome handle...

Big difference between slap straps & Atlas straps!
The biggest difference is what they are made of, slap straps are nylon & stretch ... A Lot ! Atlas straps are made of Polyester filament material...
Sounds good, I saw in one post where they used newspaper around the edge to help stop the foot getting caught up.
How was the old adjustable layer CS Yeti made?
My understanding is it had one...
Do you sew the Climashield in around the edges with Bias Tape ?
I found them here at Kammok's website ?
I went through the order process till they asked for CC info seems to be...
Apex it is then, I am off to thru-hiker ...
I have never been claustrophobic ... but the 1st time I climbed into my Clark in the dark zipped up the netting and turned off my headlamp, it hit me! Was like massive vertigo! Yikes!
What I did...
I really like canoe/kayak camping hanging trips ... the more remote the better ... This trip looks like its going down on my ta-do list! Fishing any good?
Ok, been studying on making my own DIY UQ, the information here at HF is astounding as to the quality and quantity! :thumbup:
I am thinking of using a PL and be able to add or take away up two 2...
Welcome, from Western North Carolina! Yes tons of great information ... Never have been much of a DIY'er ... But the information here in the do-it-yourself sections make it easy!
Cool, did something similar to this back when I was in high school. We lashed two canoes together with a deck in the middle, Had a blast floating down part of the Hudson river in upstate New York. We...
