    My favorite feature is the Weathershield on my Clark NX250. It's great when it's cold or damp out - keeps the temp about 10 degrees higher inside.

    Another possible option, if the Turtledog stand's footprint is too big: put together a plumbing pipe stand. Not off-the-shelf, but simple to build. I had all the lengths cut and threaded at Home...

    I tried the Z-Liner last summer and was not happy with it. It's a great idea, but has some serious design issues - primarily that the edges of the 6 pads do not overlap, so you get major cold spots...

    I bought my NX250 last May. Only used it on two backpacking trips since then, but use it in the back yard several nights a week.
