    That and this is off- topic for glasses, but not stowage:

    But there is a design glitch. Access to the pockets is the same on all models with a weathershield (ws). But, you cannot access and store net and WS independently. Zippers for one get in the way of stuffing the other.

    Another solution for stowage would be to hot-cut a long,neat access slit from underneath the foot-end hood into the stowage pocket obove.The slit would be hidden from above and stopped from tearing with several stitches at the ends. Then stowage would be independent of usage on the tented models, because you would by-pass the zipper of the other sheet.

    On the hooped models, or at least an NX-250 here, the WS is zipped as a WS to the netting, so the net must be deployed for the the WS to be zipped on.

    OK, I see what you're saying. I agree that it is a bear to stow the bugnet and set the ws. However, it is possible to accomplish by moving one pair of sliders to the foot and using the other pair for getting in and out. It is a hassle and there is a risk of a zipper eating your bug net, too.

    I simply zip the bugnet up enough to keep it out of my way when the ws is up. The wrapping it around a ridgeline is a pretty good solution as well.

    The NX-250, though, made it easy. In and out with one zipper to mess with and no worries about the bugnet.

    You guys have given some good ideas. I'm going to need to do a little experimentation.... followed by some more mods.

    New question.... Does putting stuff in the under pockets negatively affect the performance of an UQ? I'm thinking it would cause a gap and a cold spot. What are your thoughts on this?

    Works for me,depending on the UQ and where the ends fall. In another thread I claim, from experience, that there's no better seal of the HQ ends than a pair of some pillows in the end pockets. Reason? Furrows are sealed by the pockets and the cinch cord of the typical UQ falls against the pillows, which act as a gasket.

    I have both an NX-200 and NX-250. The pockets are found on both hammocks.

    On the 250, you cannot deploy the ws without setting the bn, but the bn can be set without the ws.

    On the 200, you can use them independently, but stowing the bn appears to be an issue to some folks when setting the ws without the bn. I simply zip the bn up and enjoy my evening.

    Thanks for the excellent notes and side by each comparison of the WBBB & the Clarks. Anyone been able to solve the AHE Bear Burrito Oven (BB-O) Flapping in the breeze issue?
