The entire hammock is covered by the bug net. At the foot end it is flat across the triangle. The reason I did it that way is that I can pitch it even flatter or less tight. If I had it the same on the head and foot it would be hard to tension. I also wanted to use my hiking poles at one end and it would be harder if it was inside the net.
I would make the zipper a U shape so I can flip it over the top and get it out of the way more to make it easier to get into. Even moving the high part of the zipper to the foot end would be helpful. It would be great if the net was taller, but I couldn't make it taller without moving the shock cord from the triangle tip to somewhere higher up. I know how I use a hammock and I didn't want the net to be removable.
