Ok, got another question. I'll start contributing with some answers once I get experience and know what I'm talking about.

Now...I have an ENO single nest with no bug netting. I will be doing a thru hike on the AT in 2008, and the section from Springer to Fontana this June. I figure sleeping in a hammock with no netting is the same as the people who sleep in shelters every chance they get on a thru. With that in mind, and my bottle of DEET, is a net necessary? I will be sleeping in thermals, nylon pants, and my nylon wind/rain jacket so my lower body will be fairly well covered. Just chemical up my hands and face at night. I just don't like netting and would do without it if possible.
