The light colored netting also does a magnificent job of obscuring one's view from inside. I didn't give the net much of my time, so it might get better with use. For a hiking net, no way! Then again, Trek Light's line-up is generally more suited/geared towards campers, not hikers.
I'm a fan of Trek Light and I think Seth is a pretty top-notch fella, but on the bug-netting, IMO, it was a swing and a miss.
Thanks for that....I am going to hike ...and I do have a dyi hammock I would make my own but I think with shipping would cost me just as much ...do you have any recommendations?
