    That's solid. Still I've got the UL Skeeter Beeter and when I swap out its default heavy ropes and s-hooks I'll have the weight right in the pound and a half range minus tarp and insulation.

    So what are these bug nets people are making? I would like to have a hammock and tarp setup for 13 ounces. How does the bug net work and is it integrated into the hammock, or another piece? If the latter that seems like some hassle....

    Sorry I really need to read these posts before responding. Bump I guess.

    I'd go BugSock for full coverage (www.mydiygear.com) or dp's bugnet for price/weight.

    Question - What about stakes? They aren't included in the OP. I would guess the lightest are from Zpacks. 0.2 oz a stake.

    The Vargo stakes at ZPacks stakes are 5.7 grams & 6" long. I'm not sure how thick they are.

    The lightest ones are here.

    At this time, Amazon and a hunting-oriented vendor that "fulfills" through Amazon both offer the Nano 7 for less than $41. (Amazon's will take a few weeks to ship.) For Central North Americans, standard shipping is free.

    For the mid-PM fatighe by cycling harder and longer than I should, I'm trying this for small size and road-side naps, more than for the several saved avoirdupois.

    Now, to DIY a tiny suspension.
