Description

The TX-270 is the perfect hammock for warm humid environments where it is critical to stay cool, dry and bug-free.  This model is well-tested in some of the most challenging mosquito environments, including the Amazon rain forest. The TX-270  is the ultimate hammock for Tropical environments.  The bed is very mosquito-resistant, but you can add the optional Z-Net accessory to create an impenetrable mosquito barrier under your hammock bed, keeping the largest, most aggressive mosquitoes several inches away from the bed at all times.

The TX also sets up fast with the included Timp-Hitch suspension system– the finest suspension available.  The Timp-Hitch system comes with the highest grade Spectra slings, Timp-Hitch attachment point (pre-installed on the hammock), and adjustable tree protection straps that make suspending your hammock easier and faster than ever.  This suspension system helps keep you dry by draining off torrential rains.  You will suspend your hammock quickly and get the rest you need.

Flexible poles and our largest bed create a more spacious feeling and an easier set-up than ever before. This model can be fully winterized by zipping in the breathable WeatherShield feature and applying the Clark Z-Liner underquilt insulation system (underquilt sold separately).  The WeatherShield zips around the netting for warmth and privacy, plus extra protection from moisture that could blow under the rain tarp.

The TX-270 is ideal for warm evironments where air circulation is key to comfort. This model is ready to eliminate bugs and moisture while enhancing the air circulation with a netted head end. The bed is a quality, breathable, mosquito-resistant fabric that is Made in USA.

The TX-270 features four pockets underneath for storing boots and gear which are placed on the ends of the hammock so that they do not obstruct cooling breezes. Two of these storage compartments are accessed through interior zippers on each side of the hammock so that you can get to your things without letting in mosquitoes. Two compartments are accessed on the exterior of the hammock so that you can easily store things to access without letting bugs into the hammock. The exterior-access pockets are also equipped with cover flaps to keep Tropical spiders from descending inside. Two small pockets inside the hammock are handy for storing anything from a flashlight to a pistol. The canopy netting and WeatherShield fold into the foot of the hammock when you want nothing in between you and the stars.

The TX-270’s netted head end has a nylon hood that can be zippered shut to seal out the cold.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I buy the NX or TX model?

The TX models are intended for people who will usually camp in nighttime temperatures above 60 degrees F (15 C).  The TX is especially for humid hot climates.  The storage pockets are spread apart to allow you to feel cooling breezes and the head end has extra air circulation provided by the netted hood.  If you purchase the TX model with the WeatherShield option added, using a pad or underquilt makes it fully winterized.

The NX series is intended for backpackers who will usually be camping in nighttime temperatures between 35 degrees F and 65 degrees F (2 – 18 C).  In these temperatures, the insulating pockets allow you avoid bringing a pad or underquilt.  The WeatherShield (the breathable cover that zips over the netting) is standard on the NX models.

 

Do I need the Z-Net Accessory?

All Clark beds are mosquito-resistant, and most of the world’s mosquitoes cannot penetrate a Clark bed.  However, there are some areas where mosquitoes are so large and aggressive that more protection is necessary.  The Z-Net attaches with velcro around the edges of the hammock bed and hangs several inches away from the bed to give you the best protection without relying on chemicals. The Z-Net includes  zippered entries on the foot end so that you have access to the exterior pockets of the hammock for storing boots and other gear.
