    I'm def in the learning stages of all of this. With your design, what would you do with the bug net to keep it out of the way while you're not using it during the day time (like if you used the hammock as a chair, or just didnt want to tangle with it)? Or do you just leave it on the whole time you're camping?

    Well, during the day I am hiking. But, the bugs are still out in the day time too and I like to hide inside it. I have just lifted the netting out of the way so my butt is sitting directly on the hammock so I don't stretch the net. Another way is to just take it off one side of the suspension and pull it to one side.

    For the end treatment on mine where the hammock suspension comes out, I sewed a small channel and ran 1/16" draw cord through it with a mini cord lock.

    Just saw this. I love the idea of a shock cord instead of a zipper. My Amazonas zipper jams every once in a while. I'll keep the cord idea in mind when I either replace my net with a new one, or replace my hammock.

    Never thought I'ld see a mosquito that could make me laugh. And I think it may be bigger than the ones they claim in Texas.

    I'm not a fan of zippers too.

    Our hybrid skeeters are crazy. They lure you in with their cuteness and then eat you to death.

    Had an hour or two Friday night and decided to make a bugnet for my Bridge hammock. Came out really well and works great.

    Looks awesome man! It's great to know that it will even work with a bridge hammock. Great job.

    Thanks from a new memeber

    This is the video that got me to join the Hammock Forums. I had been looking for something cost effective so I can try spending some nights in my Eno double-nest that I received as a gift a few years ago. I just completed the bug net last night and plan to use it this weekend and spend my first night elevated to a higher level. Thanks for the design and video.
