Description

The NX series is the ultimate tent hammock.  Backpacker Magazine named the NX-270 a “best new hammock” of 2017, praising its spaciousness, “excellent livability” and insulating properties (See the review).

The NX-270 is ready for a wide range of temperatures. The insulating pockets allow you to leave your pad or underquilt at home down into the 30s F (around 0° C).  These insulating pockets are accessed through zippers inside the tent hammock.  Organize and store gear in these pockets to help them insulating even better. When temperatures drop further, velcro is built in around the bed to accommodate our Z-Liner 270 underquilt. The breathable WeatherShield zips in to transform the hammock into an enclosed tent, providing warmth, a wind break, or extra protection from rain and snow.

The NX-270 combines a large solo bed with flexible poles to create a spacious feeling and easy set-up.  Simply connect the hammock to two supports, insert the poles, and you are ready for a comfortable sleep.

A dedicated cell phone pocket and a two-ended pocket (which can hold anything from a water bottle to a pistol) complete the interior storage.  The ropes are our strongest polypropylene (1710 lb. test).

You will notice the quality of the craftsmanship right way.  Each hammock is made in our Salt Lake factory from the best materials.  Every bed is made from US fabric that is woven to provide breathability, water repellency and mosquito resistance.

Features:
Space-creating, flexible fiberglass poles; water-resistent, breathable WeatherShield; six large pockets underneath hammock bed designed to store gear and provide insulation against the cold; mosquito-resistant bed fabric; two interior pockets for phone and other items; full No-See-Um netting has double zippers for highest level of versatility; 1710 lb. test polypropylene rope; no-tip design; built-in stuff bag system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I buy the NX or TX model?

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 to avoid bringing a pad or underquilt.  The WeatherShield (the breathable cover that zips over the netting) is standard on the NX models.

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.
