Using the Clark Vertex Hammock at Boy Scout Camp

今年,男孩童子军营地筋疲力尽(等等?不是吗every年?)。早晨开始于4:45左右,我们跳到北极熊游泳池或营地周围的植物跑步,并在晚上10点(或以后),晚上篝火和猫眼徒步旅行。我每天都在睡觉的一件事。

今年我带来了各种吊床,认为一些侦察员或领导人可能想要尝试一下。我的部队lovesTentsile Stingray.由于需求量很高,必须在一周内使用“外星人帐篷”。我也串起来了DD Jungle Hammock尤里卡!Chrysalis Hommock.,和全新的Hummingbird hammocksingle for different members of the troop to use. One of the positive feedback items from the troop’s review of camp was to现场平台帐篷沟,只需使用吊床。Sounds good to me!

今年,我11岁的儿子在他的第一个夏令营加入了我。我刚刚发货了两个人克拉克顶点吊床审查我的书,我渴望和我的儿子一起尝试。我们在顶点度过了一周,一起享受了一段时间。

Overview

这克拉克顶点吊床is a two-person hammock, designed around two Mayan-style hammocks connected together by a fabric spacer and enclosed with an integrated, zippered bug net and weather shield. The fabric spacer has four main storage pockets. Two of the pockets are separated by a hook-and-loop fastener that can be separated to make one large pocket.

吊床:67盎司(1,909克)(填写袋)
杆子:7盎司(193克)(在东西袋中)
Tarp:22.5盎司(639克)

Bug Net和Deather Shield在头部和脚端上方,具有小直径,分段,玻璃纤维帐篷杆。这些杆子有助于创造一个宽敞的内部,但不需要倾斜吊床。在虫纸和外部的扎出点,外部允许织物在没有帐篷杆的情况下拔出,以节省一些包装重量。

顶点内部

A large outer storage pocket is present on the lower foot area of each hammock, and a pouch is located on the top foot end of the hammock to store the weather shield and bug net if not used.

单独的篷布保护吊床从元素中保护吊床。

First Impressions

这overall build quality and construction is优秀的:缝合均匀,符合,织物是高质量的。吊床附带了一个多页所有者手册,显示了如何设置套件以获得最佳性能。

经过包裹时,唯一出现缺失的遗迹是树木的织带带。我对包括的悬浮绳感到失望,这是基于聚丙烯的,具有廉价的塑料感。这是一个三股扭曲的多绳索。与其他吊床相比,这是一个低点。指令通过将聚绳作为悬架系统表示,通过将其包裹在树周围。虽然这种技术可以使用一些锚点,但它是树木的禁止。

这poly rope is also resistant to knots and Clark secured them with bread twisty ties until the knots “set” under weight (the twisty ties are only meant to be a temporary hold and should be removed once the suspension has been used a few times). The poly rope does have other advantages: it has a lower stretch than nylon and is resistant to wicking moisture. The stiff rope also doesn’t bind as easy when knots are used, allowing you to untie a lash or knot more easily. In talking with Clark, they admit that the poly ropes are designed to reach a broad customer base who may not have any prior hammock experience. The ropes provide a baseline suspension. They’ve also designed the suspension so it can be easily removed should you want to swap out for any preferred method.

初始设置

One of the first things I did was remove the poly ropes and replace them with continuous loops of 7/64″ Amsteel. These continuous loops允许我使用各种悬架系统。On the foot end, since the two hammocks converge to a single point, I connected a single loop of Amsteel together on a ring or carabiner to make set-up a little easier.

顶点连续环

顶点循环

这是两个吊床结束的脚末端。我用一条线将这些连接在一起,并直接将Lark的头部绑在路线中心上面到Carabiner。

由于我不需要天气屏蔽,我将其解压缩到脚下并将其塞进到储存口袋里。

帐篷杆

这tent poles use a unique connection system since the diameter is so small. I haven’t seen tent poles this small; it’s very cool. The longer pole on the head end kept separating, so I super-glued the shock cord segments so they would stay together. I’ve been told that all the new models the pole tips have all been glued at the factory.

克拉克在吊床设计中使用了分段帐篷杆的使用,但这些都经过精心制作,以提供适量的升力,而无需真正需要在帐篷上需要所需的结构支持。较小的直径允许玻璃纤维杆在吊床中移动时弯曲更多,从而降低织物上的应变。我猜这将是公平的,因为它们与帐篷相比,他们提供了类似但具有明显的作用。

天气盾

除了克拉克吊床外,市场上只有几个吊床,使用综合天气屏蔽,将吊床转换为4个季节。天气屏蔽封闭吊床顶部,产生更多的帐篷状胶囊,以保留乘员周围的热量。盾牌还有助于阻止篷布不能的风或空气循环。在全季庇护所和欢迎组件中,这是非常好的功能。

虫网

经过一周的使用顶点,一个担心我有沿着拉链的锋利角,虫网上遇到吊床。在拉链转弯的织物上有很多压力。我尚未尝试没有帐篷杆的顶点,但我推测,如果我删除杆,它将有助于减少拉链线的应变。我没有遇到拉链上的任何故障或产生任何泪水,但很难将拉链拉到拐角处。

拉链上的应变部分是部分,部分地点是顶点挂起的。通过这次测试之旅,树木不是在提供三棵完美间隔的树木方面的合作。它们之间的距离长于所需距离,并且必须在树上爬上升高以设定锚点。While the hang itself was suitable, it wasn’t ideal for the Vertex, and since there is no ridge line to keep the hammock in an ideal sag, the further apart the anchor points, the more the hammock will splay, which puts more strain on the zippers for example.

In talking with Clark, they highly recommend looking for locations that have trees closer together to achieve an optimal hang.

外储口袋

外层储存口袋足够大,可以握住一双鞋子或靴子,但我只是用它来拿着未使用的东西麻袋。当我躺在吊床时,这些口袋最终绕着我的上腿和膝盖。口袋是开槽的,并且有充足的齿轮空间,而不会影响吊床的铺设。

内架子和口袋

顶点 - 中心存储区

这inner shelf has a listed weight capacity of 150 lbs (68 kg), so my son and I placed our packs and gear in this area, keeping it protected from the elements and bugs. Interestingly enough, when this center area was loaded up with our gear, it made my sleep less comfortable. All the gear really loaded this area down and negatively affected the way the hammocks performed. I finally removed most of the gear and got a much better lay in my hammock bed.

篷布报道

在顶点附带的篷布上​​,我对我留下了深刻的印象。深绿色的色调非常有吸引力;这是一个我没有看到的阴影,我用硅子看。篷布具有矩形形状,带有六个侧面搭配和两个脊线点。钩环紧固件线的塔布的峰侧,我猜测的篷布可用于密封封闭,如门,如果正确地倾斜。

Vertex-Geronimo01.

因为帐篷杆,我必须踩篷布相当高,以清除吊床的顶部。这实际上是我喜欢关于吊床的一件事:我能够在没有躲避或爬行的情况下轻松地走在篷布下。对于更好的天气保护,主要是在冬天,将踩踏地面的篷布踩到地面有助于防止草稿,但帐篷杆的顶点使其难以与股票塔尔做这件事。删除帐篷杆并仅使用一个人持有错误网络,如果需要,允许篷布降低得多。然而,结合天气覆盖并踩下角落,真的不需要降低篷布。

Sleeping in the Vertex

有两个独立的吊床,我的儿子和我可以在不打扰另一个的情况下进入和移动。我经常在我儿子之后睡觉,当进来时,我从不摇晃他的一边或让他醒来。正如我之前提到的那样,随着中心面板装有齿轮,我无法获得最佳铺设,但是当我拆下沉重的装备时,它会更好地工作。

在我的测试中,我注意到,如果两个乘客睡在相同的对角线方向(例如,脚向右,向左向左移动),它会减少脚端(脚碰撞)的相互作用,并改善两个人的界限。

这hammock beds themselves are typical.

在营地设立

我之前并排投了两个帐篷,就像顶点是如何设置的,但在营地在营地设置吊床时,我发现了一些挑战。你认为,在森林里有一个充满树的森林(或在我的案件中,一个特定的阵营网站),很容易找到一个工作的树木,但它被证明比我想象的更难。如果头端上的两棵树相隔(宽度),则无法设置顶点,以担心分开吊床。如果树木在一起更近,那很好;它只是表示中心面板不是绷紧,但它仍然是存储区域。

建议书

Set-up on the Vertex was more difficult than using two separate hammocks, but I really liked having an enclosed space that my son and I shared together. It made it more convenient to stay protected from the bugs, and being so close, we could talk and feel close even though we were in separate beds.

Upgrading the suspension system really improved the setup time and usability, plus I could use tree straps; a necessity in many areas.

顶点真的是一个很棒的吊床,特别是如果你正在寻找具有可共享帐篷空间的两个人的吊床。中间的“桌子”区域是一个很好的触感和储存小赔率和末端的便利场所。由于如何使吊床改变他们的躺椅,我不建议在中间施加大或非常沉重。

  1. Cardiac Hill, huh? I feel for you brother.Which week? We were week 3 site 13. I brought my ENO double-nest for naps and book reading. If you don’t mind the mice crawling on you at night, the adirondacks aren’t bad. At week 3 we were hitting the mid-30’s at night, so it was a bit chilly for my hang.

    • Derek. 说:

      We were in session 7, the last week. We had a few adult leaders in the adirondack who got “mixed.” I had multiple under quilts to keep everyone toasty in the hammocks.

  2. David Bagwell 说:

    你有没有对蜂鸟吊床进行评论?我好奇。他们的体重限制甚至它们的悬念很有意思。

    • Derek. 说:

      即将推出。我有3个吊床。第一个是我正在进行内部评论的原型。ybvip193.comyobo足彩

  3. Steg 说:

    Ain’t it possible to put a rope between the 2 head anchor points so as not to rip the hammock apart and be able to use farer trees? This way the strain would be on the ropes and not the hammock body…

    • Derek. 说:

      Clark actually does have something like this — a webbing strap between the two points, but it is a stop gap. The hammock isn’t designed to be pulled apart so dramatically.

  4. 约翰 说:

    谢谢您的评论..我搜索了高低,以良好的审查顶点。我的妻子有兴趣与我一起打包和露营..让这是一个选择意味着她可以感到安全......虽然成本有点高,但它似乎是值得一种亲人的安全感。

    你说明了发现3棵树可能很困难。如果树木是某种方式分开,但完美排队,你试过还是不得不使用一个非常长的带子挂它?您选择哪些选项并使用安装工作?我已经设置了这个问题,我有蓝色的蓝色让我的无尽循环成为我的eno。

    • Derek. 说:

      Yes, you can do long hangs easily if the trees are in line. Just use long straps or other suspension to span the distance. I used a whoopie hook suspension, which is lightweight and can be made pretty long.

  5. 麦克风 说:

    如果说,我的妻子和我要一起用这个吊床,如果我们的两岁的女儿在中心齿轮架上睡觉,它会享受糟糕的育儿吗?如果她能,我们都会睡个好觉。

    Looking at the pics it’s not clear to me if we could safely and responsibility do that.

    • Derek. 说:

      它在技术上是可能的,而且我已经想到了同样的事情。麻烦的是,您必须具有近乎完美的俯仰,吊床刚刚正确地拉动,因为该中心部分有点像吊床移动时会四处走动的“弯曲”空间。

  6. CJ Saavedra 说:

    我注意到你有顶部和底极线条?我的顶点没有两个......这是一个原型还是较新版本?我的Flex 180都有两者,我喜欢它才能迈出一个杆系统。

  7. 我在他们的网站上观看了顶点的克拉克视频,看起来非常光滑。然而,我没有看到任何类型的户外露营都非常实用。价格高,重量,而且与任何种类的独奏吊床相比,建立了艰苦的声音。找到两个井间隔和围栏的树木可能有时会在露营地是一个挑战,所以我可以看到这种情况更加努力,需要完美的树木三角形。我可以看到与爱人一起的好处,然而挂在吊床上是一个孤独的事件。悬挂吊床真的靠近彼此(并排或铺设两个或更多吊床)通常足够。

  8. JeremyFlatt. 说:

    嘿德里克,好的评论。我昨天刚收到了我的顶点。在我的房子里,我只有一个选项或空间来设置这个。它看起来我的配置是正确的,但我注意到当我躺着时,我的吊床上的侧面真的是紧紧靠在肩膀上......我的妻子有同样的投诉。我没想到它像NX-250一样宽敞,但这是毗邻令人窒息和不舒服的。我希望它只是设置......我也注意到我的中心区域看起来并不像我在一些照片中看到的那样嘲讽......

    Did you notice the hammock squeezing in on your shoulders and body?

    • Derek. 说:

      当我在我的吊床实验室的受控区域中挂起时,我没有注意到它。在这个领域出来它并不是那么容易,所以我们两个人必须稍微努力。我觉得我的儿子比我更好。吊床并不是那么大,所以如果你高大宽,那么内心很紧张。它不提供与吊床更大的房间;在设计上进行折衷。可能是你看看又回到单个吊床上并在你们两者的顶部分享篷布。

      • 杰里米 说:

        I am 6’1 170. I really do hope it is better in the woods. I am going hiking this Friday with my 9 year old. When me and my wife tested it out here like i said there was only 1 area that was possible to set up. However it seemed to be pretty close to what they recommend as the ideal configuration. But we both immediately noticed how confined we felt at the shoulders. When you would lay completely down the hammock would just about completely close above you. The only way i found to stop this was to lay sideways and use my body (knees in fetal position) to push against the hammock… It isn’t a big deal for sleeping but I had hoped to hang out in the hammock at night, maybe watch a movie on my tablet…. There video title that I watched several times before purchasing claimed real comfort for two people. So I guess I maybe got more excited about this “comfort” then I should have. Again maybe it was just that one configuration… I’ll report back after the trip.

        • Derek. 说:

          您也可能尝试踩脚部高一点高于头端,看看这有助于让您设置。也就是说,顶点确实妥协了尺寸,作为重量的权衡 - 这是一个大套件。

    • Steve 说:

      这solution to your problem is found on the set-up video from Clark. If your shoulders feel squeezed it is because you have hung the hammock too taut between the trees. If you hang the ropes a little higher and then give the hammock a little more slack, the beds relax and feel great. This is easiest when you choose trees that aren’t more than about 18 feet apart.

      If the trees are very far apart (from head to foot end) then most people think they should just pull the hammock tight to keep it off the ground. This makes it uncomfortable. Instead, raise the ropes as high on the tree as you can and then give it some slack to make it feel comfortable.

      我和我的妻子已经做到了这个,这是我们曾经露营的最佳睡眠。玩得开心!

  9. Derek ...在这里很大的信息。我刚刚在亚马逊上订购了你的书,迫不及待地想读它,我知道我会学到很多东西。我的妻子和我刚刚购买了克拉克顶点,我们还没有右边的周末试一试,但很快就会。一个问题:很可能我会带着顶点出来的绳索,并用四个Amsteel环取代,以及四个Carabiners和Atlas肩带。你认为AMSteel环的最佳长度是什么?感谢您可能提供的任何建议。

  10. […]模块化设计,集成,interchangeable and removable bug net and over cover (the Clark Jungle Hammocks were the first to have a winter cover built-in, but not removable). It was the talk of Trail Days […]

  11. [...]德克萨斯州的亮点为我闲聊包括篝火周围的音乐,周六的惊人壶运气,检查每个人的吊床,并满足这么多令人愉快的人。在我的部分,我带来了几个吊床的展示和讲述,包括流行的方便吊床,全新的Therm-A-Rest Slacker Hammock,Maverick Hammock,Amok Draumr Hammock,Sierra Madre Researchs和Nubé庇护所,和双人克拉克顶点吊床。[...]

  12. Dewayne Westphal. 说:

    I am fairly new to the whole hammock scene, I am 6’2 and 250lbs, been a camper for years but being a side sleeper I have begun looking for alternatives to the ground… The girlfriend and I would love to get one where we could be together in the same shelter… Is side sleeping possible in the vertex?

    • Derek. 说:

      是的。这是一个独特的庇护所。您可以通过两个单个吊床靠近同样的篷布来实现相同的概念。在您的身高,您可能会推动顶点的极限。

      • Dewayne Westphal. 说:

        Do you have any recommendations on a hammock system that will work for someone my size and sleep position? And also thank you for all the info, will definitely be buying your book here soon!

        • Derek. 说:

          任何吊床都会让你睡在你身边。至于大而且,有像吊床的基本吊床,Kammok Roo;丛林吊床喜欢Warbonnet XLC和Hennessy Hammock Safari。

  13. kyle 说:

    Is there any other two person hammocks you have tested that compare to or are better than the vertex ?

    • Derek. 说:

      并不真地。唯一的其他可比选项是Tentsile的两个人吊床。除非您是汽车露营,否则它们相当不同,但直接比较可能是不可取的。

      • kyle 说:

        谢谢你的快速反应 !No car camping we are mostly deep woods camping in the mountains of Pennsylvania so I’m looking for an alternative to a heavy tent set up but I need something comfortable for me and my wife for weeks on end here’s the hard part I need something that can also sleep our 2 year old son safely . I guess I’m wondering if the vertex is designed for this kind of set up safety being the first concern

  14. 约翰 说:

    Derek.那

    我可能错过了它。你还在建议在30度挂着这个吗?克拉克网站希望引导您安装陷阱非常高,陡峭的角度。

    谢谢,我正在订购的边缘。

    约翰

  15. 罗素 说:

    只是想知道,如果你有2棵树,在头端上有太远的树木,可以接受2个末端,吊床和树木之间大约一半,使它们回到适当的角度?在我的脑海里,如果你僵局,带子(和额外的绳索)应该承受所有的压力。

  16. [...]比其简单的设计能让吧。与固定的多人吊床和平台类似于Clark顶点吊床或Tentsile的Stingray,树-O框架是可调的,这意味着您可以附加到树木[...]

  17. Zeldalovestreats. 说:

    我的未婚夫和我正在考虑购买这个吊床,但我有几个问题:

    他是6'6“,大约230磅。在网站上为这个吊床,他的观点在高度重量比上列出了他的边缘舒适,更舒适的边缘。他在帐篷里触动到脚,所以这会对这么做吗?

    我们有一只狗,就是我们把英航约22磅ckpacking with us. Would she be able to sleep in the gear storage area comfortably? We are also about to add a second dog, so would two dogs (total weight approx 50 lbs) fit in the gear storage area? I am not a fan of storing gear in that area since we backpack in bear country, so the dogs would be the only things occupying that space.

    • Derek. 说:

      I hunk you’d find the Vertex too small and confining. The middle gear area would hold your dog. The vertex has an appeal for couples but owing to his height I would recommend an 11 ft hammock for him and a separate hammock for you. Share a tarp and stay close together. Dream Hammock has a lot of custom options for a hammock with big netting. The winter dream tarp from underground quilts gives a lot of shelter and privacy.

  18. [...]铺设。这是一种与来自克拉克丛林吊床,顶点的流行的2人吊床类似的方法。设计中的串联更简单,具有自己独特的模块化[...]

  19. Jonathan Mcdonald 说:

    In theory couldn’t I just bring a strong telescopic pole backpacking and tie around the ends of it ,from the 2 corners(head).Then from the center of the pole tie around a tree which will still allow you to only use 2 trees instead of 3?

  20. 珍嫩·尼尼斯 说:

    Do you think that in situations where you can’t find the perfect trees for the head section, that you could connect the rope/straps around two trees that are too wide, give it some slack, and then use some spare rope to tie the two pieces of rope to a more optimal angle?
