I have been brainstorming also and am thinking about Velcro on the bottom of the Bugnet
that would seal it together and then Velcro on the top of the Bathtub floor that would secure it to the net
That way the bivy would be spacious( well 36x 70)
Still playing around with the idea
what are the measurements of yours?
Actually the bivy is perfect sized for me - enough room to not feel trapped. The tub walls come up 12 inches with me in it. I'm going to lower the netting walls a bit and call it done. Fit on the hammock is perfect. When I'm in it the walls of the "tub" are high enough to let you spread out quite well.
The length of this bivy (you really must name it properly) is 100 inches to fit my BlackBird, but since the ends curve up, I only have about 8" at the head and feet - just right! The width is 40 inches.
I'm looking at the 70d silnylon as a floor option instead of the oxford nylon now. Decisions, decisions.
I really like the idea of just reaching up and pulling the door down to get out - or roll out. I'll have more pictures for you tomorrow after I trim the netting down a bit.
Oh - a word about velcro - it doesn't like netting at all - it's very grabby.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
