    I'll be taking the whole thing out for a few over nights in the next few weeks, I'll make sure to include that in the review. So far it looks pretty solid. I'd say as long as you avoid dragging it on the ground in the sticks and brush it'll be alright (and even then it seems like you'd only get a tiny whole you could tie off no problem, or by using a micro rubber band like used with braces). I wouldn't take a razor to it, but I wouldn't take a razor to any of my hammocks either

    If you take it off of your hammock and store it in it's stuff sack (which I may replace [or use in addition] with a little cuben sack for extra protection) after each use I can't foresee you ever having an issue with it.

    I'm sure Randy will share his experience with it when he gets a chance. I believe he is currently offering three different options of material.

    How much size differences in the Grand Truck UL and the Nano? The Nano looks about half the size.

    The nano stuffs down to half the size of the UL. The UL is 9.5ftx4.5ft and the nano is 9ftx4ft.

    I have two of PapaSmurfs bug socks, one Tulle, and the other is noseeum they are a great design and work very well! I have had both for about two years now and have used the Tulle one many, many, many times without issue, but like everything else if you take care of it, it will take care of you!

    The Tulle is durable enough once it's hanging because it's difficult to stress a single area of the net. Setting up and tearing down must be done carefully. It absolutely wouldn't survive dragging accross any kind of brush or anything like that.

    Tulle (.28oz) = $50 + 5.20 shipping.
    Noseeum (.9oz to 1.1oz) = $65 + 5.20 shipping.
    Nanoseeum (.7oz) = $100 + 5.20 shipping.

    I knew there was a reason I liked you. I have seen your tutorial before, but not many cottage companies will tell where they get their materials, it's usually TOP SECRET!!
