Well, the time has finally arrived to rebuild the bear taco...
I'm feeling a little more bold and have some design changes in mind, being inspired by the Jerry #5 style hammock.
However, I'm still on the fence concerning a bug net and the associated zippers. My bear taco did very well while it lasted and I never really had any trouble with insects. But I may be camping near some wetter parts of the country this year where the insects could definitely pose a problem. Then again I have a friend who hangs in the amazon without a bugnet. I'm attracted to the simplicity of just a double layer, channel end, hammock. I've never slept in a hammock with a net though so I may be missing something.
So now it's really just a matter of opinion. For those of you who've used hammocks with and without bugnets, which do you prefer and why? Are the bugnets worth the extra sewing and complexity?
thanks in advance.
