    i love my double nest but i do think its cheaper to do a diy, even if you have to take it to a seamstress to channel it out. the nylon on a diy imo would not stretch like the eno parachute. you'd get a flatter, tauter, bigger lay. the eno bugnet imo is just too rigid and bulky. buy some other netting or diy your bugnet. you're set in tarp, it sounds like. being a thruhiker, you will need to save the mula for down uq and tq. hyoh. just my opinion.

    The eno singlenest is what I used for most of the Long Trail. I'm around 5'10" and it works for me but not as roomy as a HH. Agree with previous post about bugs, I did 2/3 of the LT in June/July and the other 1/3 in August/Sept...buggy both times (some shelters BAD, some not so). If you need any help planning for the hike itself don't be afraid to send me a PM! Good luck with your hike.
