    Mosquito proof??

    Hello everyone.. got to thinking after reading a few posts... can mosquitos bite through the bottom/side material on a NA? if I was just using a quilt or fleece over me in warm weather and my exposed skin is touching the material???

    I don't know about the NA, but they sure will bite through the bottom of a Hennessy! For very warm weather, some folks are using permethrin(not my personal choice).

    What about double bottom hammocks such as Claytors, when you are not using the pads? Is that enough to keep the mossys from biting?
