I'm new to hammock camping (I suppose I should do an intro post) and will be purchasing my first in the next few days. I think I've settled on the ENO DoubleNest but have a question (well, actually lots of questions, but I'll try to contain myself). I've searched the site here and found lots of helpful information about permethrin, but I haven't seen anything regarding the ENO DN with Insect Shield. My question is, is it worth it to pay more for the pre-coated model?
In looking at Sawyer and other spray-on permethrin brands, it seems that it will last for 42 days of sun exposure or something in that neighborhood. This might be a stupid question, but is the ENO version more permanent or should I just save a little money and pick up a bottle of permethrin and do it myself? Is any treatment at all even effective? TIA.
