Description

The VX 2-Person Hammock offers 4-season comfort for two with insulating pockets that keep you from bringing a pad or underquilt on many trips.   Get zippered access to six insulation pockets on each bed and enjoy full mosquito-protection in a spacious canopy. Zip over a breathable layer for privacy and warmth. Each occupant gets six insulating pockets which are postitioned under the heaviest parts of your body to restore warmth.  You will have zippered access to these pockets from inside the hammock. As you place extra gear in the pockets, they will reach their potential to keep you warm down to freezing temperatures, keeping you from having to bring a pad or underquilt on most trips. The VX Ultra features two independent hammock beds and an ample storage compartment that can hold backpacks and items you may need during the night.  The hammock hangs from three supports.

We make hanging this tent simple by including the finest suspension system available.  The Timp-Hitch suspension system includes the highest grade Spectra slings, Timp-Hitch attachment point pre-installed on the hammock, and adjustable tree protection straps.  You will hang the hammock quickly and stay dry, bug-free and perfectly comfortable in this American-made system.

The VX Ultra bed has two independent sleeping areas that hang independently while allowing the occupants to share the same tent.  The hammock is just as stable as Clark’s other hammocks, so you don’t need to worry if one person gets in or out.  In fact, you may not even notice if the other occupant exits the hammock during the night.  If you this model as a solo hammock, you may sleep on one side and place your backpack and other items in the second hammock bed.  Alternatively, a single occupant can turn diagonally across the hammock and the hammock will respond by providing the flattest hammock bed possible.

The center storage section of the VX 2-person hammock has ample space for two backpacks, or even a small child.  Two pockets attached to the center storage section can hold items you need during the night.  The two pockets can become one large pocket if you prefer to put a large item such as a backpack inside.

When temperatures drop into the 30s Fahrenheit or lower, you can attach the matching Z-Liner underquilt (sold separately) to each bed to stay warm in temperatures down to 0 degrees F (-17 degrees C).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I put this hammock on the ground when there are no trees?

The VX turns into a bivy tent when you stake it down at the three rope connection points.  You do need to use a separate ground cloth underneath the tent since the bed is intended to be breathable and is not waterproof.

Do I need three trees to hang this model?

Yes, however it’s not much different than hanging a regular camping hammock.   The trees don’t have to be in a perfect triangle, and it’s okay if one tree is further away or further to the side.  So as long as you have quite a few trees in your camping area, you will have no problem hanging this tent.   This hammock is much easier to hang than some suspended tents that need perfect trees and use inconvenient ratchets that put a lot of stress on trees.  After a little practice, you can hang our double hammocks in a few minutes.

Does each bed need to balance?  Is it okay if one person is heavier?  What is the biggest person that will fit?

Each bed in the Vertex and VX hammocks holds at least 700 lbs.  So durability and strength are not a problem.  We expect each bed to hold a person who is up to 300 lbs or a little more (based on the size of the bed).

The hammocks do not require balance.  Meaning that it’s okay if one side has more weight in it.  In fact, you won’t notice when the other person moves around or gets in or out.

What under quilt can I use for this model?

The Z-Liner 270 (in our insulation section) is the correct size for each bed of this model.  You need two Z-Liners for this model because there are two beds within the tent.

    My wife became interested in the VX hammock because of all the fun I was having in my NX-270 model. I bought the VX thinking that if we go together, we can enjoy hanging side-by-side and if either of us chooses to go alone or with friends, we will have the single 270. After watching several videos on YouTube, I was a bit concerned about hanging it. However, once I started, I realized it was not much different from the single version, and those people were mostly newbies. Just need one more tree, and one more tree strap (gotta protect the trees!) Because I already had the underquilt for the 270 and because Clark engineered it to work the same, I only needed to buy one more the other side of the double. We set up on the flanks of Mt St Helens at Blue Lake in Washington and promptly fell asleep. I am about 80 lbs heavier than my wife and the hammocks are structurally isolated enough from each other that there isn’t much bounce when moving around. After getting used to the 270, the interior of the Ultra Double hammock is huge! At 6’5″ I could easily sit up inside the mosquito netting and had plenty of room to get in whatever sleeping position I chose. The storage area between the hammocks is very handy for headlights, gloves, hats, layers … whatever you might need. I think it is worth every penny of the price and I think it is finally time to retire the backpacking tent … at least as long as there are trees around. Also, kudos to Clark for making the underquilt to work on either model!
