Use zippers. Don't even think about velcro. I just received my JRB BM Bridge hammock, and I love everything about it EXCEPT for the omni tape bug net. As soon as I get it figured out, the velcro will be ripped off of that thing with all haste, and replaced with zippers.
Omni-tape is maddening.
That's so obvious that I never would have thought of it!!! Thanks.
