i belive someone already talked about that. could be nice if you were spending time in a buggy place.
I have been toying with something like that. I am thinking of a tarptent with noseeum sides and sil bottom and top. Kind of a hybrid Tarptent and one of Ray Jardine's tarp/bugtarps.
In my case I want something that I can set up as a hammock tarp/bugnet or as a ground tarptent with my trekking poles. This would be perfect for someone out west.
Actually now that I think about it, a rectangular tarptent with small opening for the hammock supports and a ridgeline tieout would be about right. It might have to be a little taller though.
This is probibly going to be high up on my DIY list this winter if/when I move to Denver.
