    The shock cord is a great idea, now off to modify my current skeeter proofing apparatus.

    I recently made my own bugnet based off your design and I must say, it works great! Kept the skeeters out all night and then I was able to quickly slide it off to the side out of the way the next day because of velcro in the top corners.

    Awesome dude! Glad it worked out for you and you showed those sky piranhas who owns the woods.

    Fronkey, thanks for the vid! I just got my first hammock (ENO Doublenest) and I'm excited to enter this new world!

    I had a question about the initial set up for this project: when you double the length and fold it over do you leave it folded on that side? Or cut it into two seperate pieces and sew it back later?

    Also, would you recomend leaving the holes for the suspension a little bigger and doing another shock cord on each to ensure it sinches tight? Maybe I'm just paranoid :P

    I'll be camping primarily in FL and this is my first priority for an upgrade for my hammock.

    Thanks for the help!!

    Yeah, you cut it into two separate pieces.

    For the suspension holes, I would leave them as is. People have been doing some mods to that part by using velcro, omni tape, etc.

    What I personally do is just tie them off with some of the extra cord I carry in my pack. It's lighter than velcro and I can adjust it if needed too.
    Also, I grew up in WPB, Fl. I feel for you with those sky piranhas.

    If you need any more help than feel free to ask. Good luck dude.

    Thanks for the quick response!!

    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?
