    Bug Net question

    I recently purchased a WBBB, but it wasn't my cup of tea. Yes....call me crazy, but I guess I'm an open hammock kind of a gal after all. I currently have a Trek Light double, and I'm thinking about a WB Traveler. Both are 10 ft. hammocks. I'm debating about a bug net now. I probably won't need one very often, but would like to have one if needed. I like the design of the ENO Guardian with the ridgeline clips & vertical zipper. Also the WB net looks good. The ENO lists it's length at 9 1/2 feet. Would this be a problem with a 10 ft. hammock? I can get the ENO on Amazon.com for a good price.
    Any input on these bug nets is appreciated. Thanks

    Get an open top hammock, then a WB bug net for summer and a Papa Smurf hammock sock fr winter. Options...it's all about options.

    Alternate Plan "B"

    Hose your hammock down with permethrin, get a Thermacell, and go topless. The hammock, I mean.

    Kathy is stepping away from the WBBB and BBO because of a touch of claustrophobia. A Papa Smurf sock would not take her to her "happy place".

    For the record ..... the BBO is an awesome piece of gear. Because I had a right hand zip modified Blackbird with matching BBO, I sold them together. They were meant for each other.
    If I get into winter camping at some point, I'll have to decide about a hammock sock. Maybe I can get one made with a mesh moonroof, or just pull it up to my neck with my head out to combat that closed in feeling????

    Looks like either the ENO or the WB will work great. Comes down to a decision between a vertical or horizontal zipper entrance. I'll be using the net over an underquilt. Any strong opinions as to which design is easier to deploy, and enter/exit?
    Thanks for all the input so far. HF folks rock!!!!

    I just made my latest sock so I could sleep with my head completely out if I wanted to. This is my favorite design so far. Pics coming at some point...
