    Warbonnet Bugnet

    I'm thinking of ordering the WB Bug Net to go around my ENO DN. I like the look and set up more than the ENO net. What's the general consensus on the WB Bug net? Anyone got other suggestions? I'm not a gramwhore so weight isn't a big deal to me.

    It is really light weight and the curved zipper makes for a nice opening if the bugs are not out during the day.

    Does the Hammock touch the bottom of the net when you're in it? What're the stats on getting bit through the hammock? I hear people complain about that problem with the ENO net. That's one of the reasons I was drawn to the non open bottom of the WB BN
    If you don't try due to fear of failure you've already failed due to fear.

    I had an older model with a horizontal zipper. The new model is a little shorter and wider IIRC. I never noticed the net touching the bottom of my hammock.
    You could treat you hammock with permethrin to keep the bugs away from your back.

    I have one and with the bug net hanging from my ridge line, there is still plenty of net hanging underneath my UQ. I like the curved zipper design. No problems as of yet.

    Just recently got mine and will be trying it out next weekend. Seems solid, though.

    Any-one got a true measurement of the ridgeline length on this bugnet?

    My DIY is longer than standard and I'm curious to know if the BB Net would fit ok.

    Shipping all the way down here is a bit exy to just buy one and then check.
    I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

    If nobody answers this in the next couple of hours I can measure mine for you. My GF works graveyard and it wouldn't be in my best interest to wake her up just to get it out.

    Got it Browny, the length is 101"

    not sure what ENO bugnet your refering to, the only one i know of is the guardian and it's not open on the bottom. your probably better off with the WB bugnet for weight purposes though. i also like the horizonal zipper vs. th vertical one on ENO net. i may order one of the WB nets real soon.

    i will say this, i've never been bit while in the ENO guardian, it's a decent bugnet if setup right but it's heavy in comparison to the WB net

    Just my 2 cents, but I found the bugnet to be almost wind proof and quite hot, too hot for weather above 50 or 55 degrees F for me. I ended up selling it. I felt very confined in it. Many love theirs but that no see um is tight stuff.
