    BugNet HH without Zippers?

    I would like to know if anyone has just removed the bugnet from a HH and made a removable one? I was going to have a mod 4 zipper put on & saw these nets. I like the idea of having a ligher setup for winter without the net. I would guess that something like what Shug made for his bridge hammock might work as well. Any ideas on this?

    In this case it would probably be easier to just get/make a bugnetless hammock. Then you don't have to fiddle around with something that already works great. Plus, it gives you an excuse to get another hammock.

    I was thinking the same thing. Possibly just want to add a velcro/snap/drawstring opening on the headend for ventilation (not sure how necessary that would be). Might be a little heavier than a few other hammock socks I was looking at (that used a single width of fabric with an extra insert vs 2 lengths of fabric). This design would be slightly easier to construct, and vastly easier to enter/exit.

    It could certainly be done but perhaps instead of putting the shock cord on the bottom move it toward one end (preferably the head end for cinching up/ease of removing it) so there is less of an opening. I think with the shock cord on the bottom there would be too much heat loss.

    I made a sock that was basically a tube of nylon with shock cord on the foot and head ends but I'm thinking about taking the Fronk-net and turning it in to a new hammock sock. Good thinking TFC.

    The Funky Fronkey

    I made mine without making the angled end cuts. Just folded over and ran a seam down the open end. I was thinking it would be nice to be able to lift the net completely out of the way for fear of causing damage to the net when using the hammock as a chair, and for ease of sliding a pad in between the hammock layers. Easy enough to remove more material if I ever change my mind. It weighs in at 8 and 1/8 oz (but could get lighter if I removed some shockcord). I call it the Funky Fronkey bug net.
