    I haven't seen anyone adding a permanent net to a Traveler....yet.

    I wouldn't put a permanent net on mine if they were giving them away.

    Gringo... Thats why I want full zippers on both sides.

    The bugs get bad here starting in late April....and can stay bad right through October.

    Ive had mosquitos ruin trips... and I prefer to do my best to stay away from synthetic repellents.

    Did I mention I dont like Bugs?

    I hear ya...lived in Mt. Clemens for a couple of years.

    I guess if it could be reefed to the ridge line, I could stand it.

    LOVE my Thermacell!

    Well Opie, I hope that you figure something out. I just ordered a Traveler and I am interested to see how a 100% zip on and zip off bug net would work on one.
    I think it is a great idea.

    What's wrong with Warbonnetguy's bugnet for the Traveler?
