    Clark Tropical 2 Arrives: basement hang

    In preperation for my likely trip to Vanuatu, I ordered a Clark Tropical 2

    It has arrived and I am quite excited.
    I felt that the NX150 would be to hot in the jungle,
    and when I leave the island, will leave the hammock with a Missionary.

    I am really impressed with the Tropical model,
    again very well made.

    It is a completely differant lay, mind you because of the attached fly
    it needs a longer distance between attachments,
    and my basement setup is rigged for the 150,
    So, I haven't tried it set up proper. Only need another 10"
    May try down by the river later.

    Funny thing about it . . . when laying in it I was wearing a Tee shirt and a T-neck and a shirt,
    and the basement is normaly 15C or 60F
    as I lay there I was cold from underneath,
    and in the NX150 I was OK . . .

    I guess the pockets help more that I figured,
    even knowing that the NX150 will be a little warm in the jungle.
    I am wondering if I prefer the lay of the NX150 . . .
    I may have to order one with out pockets . . . ?

    Yep!! I've said quite a few times on here that I've been able to try out the NA and compair the temp. differences between it and my Tropical and I can tell very quickly that my Tropical is way cooler than the NA. If you're gonna be in constant temps of 80 degrees F and up with humidy, go with the Tropical!!! I was way overheated in the NA. and just would not want to sleep in it in those temps.

    You can remove the tarp from the hammock as soon as you're comfortable with how all the suspension lines are attached. You will need to add an extra line to the netting to hold it up. I changed out all my lines to amsteel whoopies.
