    Half bug net mods

    I wanted to have a bug net to add or remove without taking the suspension apart. So this is what i came up with, its the bug net that goes with my shadow hammock.

    Seems ok at the moment i tuck it inside the hammock edges and around my topquilt. But does need testing in a bug storm.

    This is my favorite design for an ultralight backpacking hammock. When Dutch came out with this design I immediately fell in love with it. This is the first DIY version I have seen, well done! I really like how you have made this modular.

    Here is a quick review of my half-wit from Dutch -
