    Hennessy vs. Clark

    I'm curious, do you sleep on the diagonal in a Clark Jungle Hammock (North American to be specific) like you do in a Hennessy? If not how do you lay? Is it flat like a bridge style? Thanks in advance.

    Usually, you do not lay diagonally in a Clark (although I do when I sleep on my side).
    For the most part, you'd be sleeping straight down the middle of a Clark. But it isn't flat like the bridge hammock designs. You'll be kind of "banana-shaped."
    I find it very comfortable (even though I'm not normally a back-sleeper) as long as I have something stuffed under my knees.

    FWIW, I love my Clark.

    Clark NA is a gathered end, and you sleep in it similar to a Hennessy. The Clark is narrower, fabric is a little stiffer so you don't need as much of an exaggerated diagonal as you do in a Hennessy, but you still sleep on the diagonal. Normally down the middle or a little off-center, much like most of the members here.

    I have only had my Clark NA out on three nights. I find it to be very comfortable, a lot more so than sleeping on the ground. I like the idea of putting something under my knees, and I will have to try that the next time I hang.

    When I lay at a diagonal in my Claytor it feels as flat as a bridge. This is how I sleep, and it is extremely comfy.
