    My gut says no. I have some other small nets and they are fairly minimal.

    Here's the Coghlan's catalog listing showing the configuration and size. I don't think it is what you want.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    We use theose at Summer Camp for the Scouts. We created a frame from some 1/2 pvc; taped the frame to their cots, then draped the net over the frame. The frame breaks down for packing.

    The only thing that I could come up with; was tie a chord to left and right corners on both ends of the net (or use a rod or dowel), so it could hang on the ridge line. Then cut a 6" hole at the top of head and foot of the net about an inch below the seem (Center it at the top). Sew in 8" of hook and loop and feed your hammock through these openings. You can then either let the bottom hang to the ground or come up with a way to seal the bottom at night. I'm going to try this for my camping trip to the Lehigh River in June. I have the ENO Bug Net on my list of future upgrades it may be a better option for you.

    I've attached a rough drawing of the idea.

    If it's the single, Coghlans says it's 32x78x59. The double version is a bit larger (and only $4 more). It's 63" x 78" x 59".


    I have the double version, and it's adequate coverage draped over my SRL, but I plan to tweek it some to get it to work better. When I get an hour or two to spare, I plan to do something similar to what rich shows in his diagram. I plan to cut a slit in the mesh at the head and foot ends, and drape it over the SRL, and just let it hang down. I might need to also sew in a few ties to tie it to hammock at head and foot.
