    How would you use this net?

    It does not have a bottom, as shown

    Wouldn't work "as is" with a hammock, if that's what you're wondering.

    It might work really well if converted into the Hug Half Bug net style. There are a lot of DIY instructions for it online and I think this forum link will help.

    I have used a net like this before as a half bug net. I suspended it under the ridge line by 2 prussics. Just tied 2 overhand knots in the net and looped the prussics on to them. l had one knot up near the gathered end and one nlevel with my waist. I then tucked the net behind my shoulders a down the sides of my top quilt and let it drape across the quilt at about waist height. It worked fine fo me.

    I would turn it upside down, sew the bottom together , leaving space for the hammock suspension to go through, and then cut off the top (now the bottom) enough to allow entry, making a fronkey bug net.

    I like the idea of turning it upside and sewing the bottom together. Depending on the size of the new opening, you may need to add a cinch channel with some shock cord.

    I don!t think it would be big enough. Dimensions 7'3" X 4' X 3'6".
