    Thanks Armando, the particular thing im interested in is how flat it lays and or if you can lay slightly across it to flatten it out, hope it all goes well for you and look forward to your thoughts, cheers Doz

    Super comfy, love the integrated bug net and weather shield. Much nicer than having to track and assemble 4 or 5 different pieces like some other hammocks. Spreader bars are great for not feeling claustrophobic.

    What he said. It's a true four season hammock. I also like the fact that it unzips on both sides.

    The only real con is it's weight. It's the reason I primarily use it when the temperatures drop or real rainy weather is predicted. Many have said the weathershield will raise the inside temp at least ten degrees. Personally I think it has a greater effect than that, especially when it's windy.

    When temps are more moderate (most of the time) I use a Switchback or some other hammock without the weathershield etc because they are lighter. The Clark is a great hammock if you are only going to have one.

    Oh yeah....the pockets are great for storage and provide some extra heat retention.

    I've had my NX-150 for a little over a year now and the only cons are the weight and its a little too warm above 80°F. The thicker material doesn't breath as well as thinner hammocks.

    The thicker material is great in cool or cold weather, stops wind from robbing generated warmth. The weather shield is great, and as mentioned above I like being able to enter/exit from both sides. Spreader bars although a little cumbersome but work real well at keeping the squeeze down to a minimum.

    The only modification I've done to mine is to change the stock suspension to whoopies.

    I admit that every pic of a Clark NX, without a tarp overhead, brings a land-schooner to mind, a covered wagon of the woods and plain. A complete ark, a caravan.

    And that image evokes a smile.

    My enthusiasm for the weathershields is in previous posts here. Be aware that the shield for the NX models is implemented as a shield to the bug net. It is an independent shield on other models. That's a fine point, but surprised me without, finally, disappointing me.

    My mods specific to Clarks? Some light elastic cords to pull the hoods and bug net back, gently toward the ends.

    Cavils? The pockets on the NX-250 should have flaps over them, as on the Tropical model. Strong, fine mesh bug netting reduces more air flow than I'd always like; but I doubt there's better and better engineered for keeping out midges.

    I just got mine in the mail on Tuesday and tonight will be my first hang. I will let you know tomorrow what I think. I have been using a Hennessy Explorer Deluxe for about a year and a Warbonnet Blackbird (my favorite of the two) for the last 6 months and have high hopes for the NX-250.

    My NX-250 just arrived yesterday and I haven't been able to hang it yet. Maybe tonight!
