I've been trying to decide between the two for a couple days now.
I'm not a big guy, 160 lbs 5'8". Travel with a dog, 30lbs French Brittany spaniel which would also be sleeping in the hammock.
I have never used a hammock before. I hike / camp northern Minnesota mostly spring and fall so its colder. I have been using a two person tent.
On the Clark web site it says the Flex 180 is for experienced hammock users, not sure if this model would be more of pain for me setting it up, would the extra space be nice for the dog, the dog would most likely lay on me anyways since I will be warmer. If the flex-180 was hung from two trees would it basically be the same as the NX-250? as for comfort?
The pockets on the NX-250 seem like they would be a nice feature. The TX-250 also looks nice with the ability to remove the weather shield from the head. Also the Z-Liner is one piece for the TX which I would think would be better.
Any response to help me decide on one would be appreciated.
