    Wbbb 1.1 dl mosquito question

    Has anyone had any experience with mosquitos and the WBBB 1.1 DL hammock? Can they penetrate and bite through the double 1.1 layers? I've had my WBBB since October of last year and haven't had the pleasure of dealing with the insects yet.

    The blighters have been out in their millions around here.

    Not a single bite on me inside my WBBB 1.1dl.
    It's bad luck to be superstitious.

    I've got the even lighter BB 1.0 material in a double and not had any issues with skeeters in my neck of the woods.

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    yes, however I'm thinking ahead to the really warm weather where i won't be taking any type of UQ with me. Was interested how well it held up unassisted.
    Sounds like it will do the job.

    I only had one bad experience with mosquitoes, and that was with my single layer 1.7, quickly learned about permethrin after that. My double 1.0 always protected me.

    No problems here. I'm in my hammock now, there are Mosquitos swarming around me as I type this.

    no bites here either.
    When it seems like the night will last forever
    And there's nothing left to do but count the years
    When the strings of my heart start to sever
    And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears
    I will walk alone by the black muddy river
    And dream me a dream of my own
