    Looks to be high maintenance...the hammock and netting ain't bad either.

    Why not consider a WB Bug Net?

    One I'd prefer over this would be the Warbonnet Bug Net. Simply due to the location of the zipper. Seems easy to reach, no reaching below you while in the hammock. I've never tried this one, someone else would have to attest to it's ease of use. But it might be out of your price range.

    Gotta agree with the others, Warbonnet makes the best, IMO, bug net out there. Very easy to get in and out of and lighter than anything else that I know about.

    Can't have you getting killed!

    Like I said, practice may go a long way with getting in and out. I've got a gnat sized attention span, so I didn't give it much time. A zipper install would fix it if it failed to get easier. If it's what can be afforded, it's what will work. Still keeps the bugs out, which is the important bit.

    maybe you could place a "want to buy" add for the WB or ENO and see what comes up . I'v seen them both sell before here for 30 to 40 bucks . You got some time before bug season

    One thing I liked about the eno is how far it hangs down. I've seen guys using the eno bug net letting hang down low enough to touch the ground (with the hammock slung appropriately low too, obviously. In that setup, they were able to set a pack on the ground, inside the bug net, to keep at least some critters out of the pack. Boots inside the bug netting would be pretty nice, too - spiders in between your toes in the morning aren't fun.

    I'v used my ENO net with great success. It is a well made piece of gear even if it is heavier than some . I have clipped the stuff sack off and the little ridgeline clips and instead I use the sewn in ridgeline that it has to suspend it (there is a picture in my album showing how I tension it)
