Either way you go will wind up costing you the same price in the end. By the time you get the hammock, snake skins, top and bottom quilts and hammock sock. You will be at more then the Clarks initial cost. Go with the Clark. It will cost less in the long run.
Jim: Yeah, lots of zippers. I attached long lengths of bright ribbon to all the ones I thought I'd like to be able to reach without risking wrenching a back. A 49c solution I'm happy with, even if sometimes I must move a zipper to have the trailing ribbon not drop in my face.

I think the weathershield as an upgrade is one of two or three bargains among Clark options. Just $40 when available but optional, and likely a mis-price, considering the zippering.
Love the Clark. 1st class Quality. Made in USA. Cool Camo.
Yep. I already had the KAQ. Next time I camp I think I will bring the KAQ but not use it one night to see how the pockets perform by themselves. I think they might be good enough for the summer temps.

a stock fly: both can be upgraded to a larger model
the clark has the weather shield included, the hh has an overcover that's sold seperately that serves the same function.
hh stock package plus overcover would be pretty comparable to a stock clark that has the wethershield included.
