I was watching Jester's Team Bad Wizzard on the PCT video and saw how miserable the skeeters could be out there. I got to thinking a solution would be to make something like the ID Bug Tent http://www.integraldesigns.com/produ...TOKEN=23209628 except made out of nanoseeum net and set up so one could use it with a hammock tarp over it when rain cover is needed, or as just a bug shelter when it isn't. I've done some math and think I could make something like this for a solo hammock at about 8.5 ounces.
I figure someone must have already played with this since it seems like so simple an idea. The Hammock Bliss Sky tent is sort of that, but much heavier and less rain protection.
