    Clark NX-250 Trinity Alps winter Hang

    I posted a while back about my first "ALL In" winter hang, I have been a lifelong outdoor adventurerer and nature enthusiast and have only discovered Hammocking as a means to shelter while trekking within the last year. After much research, and countless hours HF lurking, I went "All In" I set my sights on the Clark NX-250, I wanted a 4 season shelter that could handle the rigors of the type of trekking I do, and the versatility to go to ground when above the treeline if needed. I was not dissapointed.

    Great choice of equipment. You did it right the first time. From the start, I wanted a Clark but I used up time and money as I worked my way towards my current setup. It's a fun journey though

    Nevermind...Well, I just went back to read some of your other posts - seems the Clark was not your first or only. OK - still a great choice. Nice to know that you hold the Clark in high regard even with other options.

    Actually the Clark was my first, however I have since added A WB Traveller to my arsenal (CJH Ultralight was my first choice, but wants, needs and finances don't always align) with bug net and MJ tarp for warmer, lighter, longer trips. I do like the versatility of leaving the bug net at base when bugs are not an issue. The HH Scout I got for my son who is taking after his old man and, my love for adventure.
    Happy travels!

    It looks like the pockets are full, but what we're you using for insulation and how cold did it get?

    Clark's Z-Liner in the pockets, got down to 27 deg F. the second night. Toasty warm!

    A rare, positive review for the Z-liner. I had almost dropped the Z-liner off my 'want list' but maybe it will stay for awhile after all.
