    Looks good so far...

    I'm trying to figure out a way to have drawstring(strung?) ends that would stay in place that would allow zipping different tops or bottoms on, DWR or Noseeum, depending on what you need. But that's probably too complicated...

    I think I'll just stick with 3 different socks. One DWR, One Noseeum, and One hybrid.

    That's probibly what I will do. Although I am going to try to make a hammock with a side zip to attach the bug netting. I think that would take a good amount of weight off.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Has anyone tried one of the 1/2 DWR 1/2 netting socks in the winter months?

    The big advantage of a sock for me is being able to completely enclose my hammock in the winter to reduce air flow all around. I would think that a "half and half" sock would allow to much air flow through the netting, even if the netting is located on the bottom of the hammock, reducing the overall insulation value of the sock in the winter.

    True, but the really mean 'skeeters will be able to get you through the bottom of your hammock still, unless you treat with permethrin or something.

    That's true. I'm just thinking of Spring and Fall, when you may need a little extra, but still have bugs...

    the netting in my ide would be covered up with extra DWR ripstop on the inside sealed up tight with velcro. This would be in the colder months, to use as an hammock sock. Then for early Spring, Summer, and Fall you can either open the windows up to allow air circulation or close them if you get to cold.

    Has anyone tried just standard mosquito netting vs. noseeum netting? I don't know how far south noseeums come but they just aren't an issue around my area, only mosquitos. I'd rather not sacrifice the airflow if possible. I definitely don't get much airflow with the noseeum netting on my HH. I think regular mosquito netting is about 200 holes/sq. in. vs. 650 for noseeum? I haven't see any first hand so I don't know if it's a significantly weaker fabric or not. Not trying to complicate things more just thought I'd throw that out there since you guys got me lookin' at the stuff.

    If I can get the extra funds to try and make my idea, I think I am going to just use regular mosquitto netting for that reasoning. After discussing it with NCPATRICK. I have never used no-seeum so I didn't know it restricted airflow that much.

    Hmm... I've never NOT used noseeum, so I have no experience with regular mosquito netting. I do know that some of the 'skeeters around here are pretty small, so I'm not taking any chances.

    I bet the difference would be pretty negligible, except for when it's extremely hot and you start imagining that if you only had REGULAR mosquito netting you'd be much cooler.

    I think I may just make a skeeter sock like yours instead, but out of actual skeeter netting. I can buy one of the Coghlan mosguitto nets cheap and just cut it to what I need.
