    Nice mod. I'm going to apply it to my ENO double ASAP. I have never cared for the floppy sides

    Also considering to use it on my poncho-liner UQ. One at the head end and one at the foot end. To pick up the assym. slack

    If you want a commercial hammock with this function built in, look at what Wilderness Logics is now offering.

    I did the mod this weekend. It took all of maybe 15 minutes from start to finish. And I've got to say that it was well worth the time. I slept in it for the first time last night and it was great not to have to wrestle with my top quilt, keeping it from going over the edge.

    Thanks again Knotty.

    If your bug net is already attached see if you have a channel running down the long side of the hammock. You could always pinch about a half-inch of fabric and create a channel and then do the mod. If you haven't attached your bug net yet, then, you're good to go. You could always do a 1-inch channel and then run a line of stitching in the center of that channel making two separate half-inch channels. Run your shock cord through the lower (inner) channel and then sew your bug net to the outer channel. Voila! I'm thinking of combining this great mod with Hangnout's bug net.

    I was just thinking if it would affect the bug net by creating a crumpled section that may cause stress to the other parts of the bug net. And how about the zipper section? It seems that Hangnout's bug net idea will solve this, but i still prefer a side entry with zippers.
