    Vertex for kids

    Is it worth the money to get this set-up for kids? Roughly 4.5' 80#. Don't know what else to add or ask at this point in time.
    If it moves, you can eat it.

    Boy that's a big chunk of change....and kids tend to destroy stuff How about two Eno singles AND you'd still have money left over for some really nice tarps for them...and packs....and shoes, and........well, you get my point

    O wow thats expensive... It would be the best fort ever as a kid though! Would be the size of an entire tent for a kid.
    Im sure its well built and have all sorts of nifty features, being a clark too.

    As was mentioned, a few enos would be cheaper. Or a diy hammock, supplies for the pair would only be 50-ish.

    Thanks for the comments. I sure would like to see one to decide if it is all that.

    I think it would be all that, but to someone who could fully appreciate it...i think your kids would be just as happy in a 20 dollar hammock as they would be in a 500 dollar hammock
