    Different than a nano, try here http://www.mydiygear.com/pages/proje...ultralight.php
    This is Papa's website, he is a member here. I HIGHLY recommend him, this will be my second hammock by him.

    Edit: Bug Sock is sold sepeate, just browse his site.

    Answer to first question: No they are two different hammocks!

    Second and Third: Papasmurf is a HF member here http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/member.php?u=4211 with his site http://www.mydiygear.com/ He does/sells DIH (did it himself) gear and sells a GT UL hammock that has already been moded, as well as a lightweight bug net sock! As well as many other great things!

    How does that bugnet close up? Just pull past the end and tighten it with a drawstring or?

    Yup. Mine should be in my hands around Thursday. I'll post up some pics when it arrives.

    You guessed it! There is a drawstring with a cord lock, just reach above your head and tighten! Very, very easy to operate!

    Both of mine close perfectly and are beautifully built! Fit my GT UL perfectly and a little on the big side for my Nano 7 (but still works perfectly, without issue)!
