That has been kicked around several times by many folks trying to create the most flexible system for bugnetting and topcover. The problem is always the same. The zipper required to do the job. It has to be a "separating zipper" of just the right length. There isn't anyone making separating zippers of the correct length....that we have found. Furthermore, there are many different length hammocks involved. A separating zipper has a molded on "starting finger" that is put on the zipper tape at the factory and we cannot reproduce it. Some have tried, but they fail miserably. If that could be figured out.....then there is a possibility of making any length zipper
we would need from a bulk roll of zipper.
Well, that's the issue. We are all waiting for a vendor to announce a
custom length separating zipper. Until then.......
