Best zipper length, orientation, and type for a bug net?
I'm redoing my bug net. I had picked up a couple surplus bug tents to make my nets. My first generation was open on one end with a draw string so I could cinch it above my head. It turned out to be better in theory than practice.
My thought now is to close the end with a zipper or Velcro so I can still pull the net back and use my hammock as a chair. To get in and out while it is in use I plan on putting a zipper in the middle of one side. The thing I'm wondering about is what length zipper makes for easy entry and egress? Second, is vertical or horizontal orientation better? Also, what size and type of zipper works best? Any ideas or experiences would be appreciated.
