I experimented with putting some cheap polyester stuffed pillows in the pockets and they really work. And look terrible, a la the Michellen Man. I now use an under quilt that reaches from hoop to hoop, and it rocks. If something happened to mine today, I would be ordering a new one before dark, I am much more interested in pure comfort while sleeping, than counting ounces while hiking.
be smaller than old4hats, so the NX250 is larger than I need. I know that from using smaller-bed Clark models, too. But, I'd second everything he's said; except I'm ahead of him in having a backup or two to lend hammocks, as good as the one I want to sleep in, to folks I was touring with who might otherwise be grounded.
