    Question Sleeping on an angle with a bug net question

    So I was laying in my eno doublenest today thinking about getting a clark hammock. And I got to thinking. With most hammocks you need to lay at an angle right? Seems like this would put your head and feet right next to the bug netting on hammocks like clark's and claytor's. Is this a problem and are your head/feet that close to the bug net that bugs can bite you? Thanks for any reply

    I'm no expert, yet. I just slept in the Clark Jungle Hammock North American Model (NX-200)for one night so far and that is the first camping hammock I have ever used. I can tell you that there is more than plenty of room in the Clark between I and the No-See-Um netting. There is no way those mosquitos are going to get to you unless their already in the hammock before you zip up.

    At least for me, the Clark doesn't allow a diagonal position. I mean, I can get into a slight diagonal when I'm on my side, but . . . . nothing like you do in the ENO.
    The way I sleep in the Clark, I'm not in contact with the bugnet.

    Also, the newest Clarks have a new bottom material that resists mosquito penetration. You'd have to contact Spencer or someone at Clark to get more details about that part.

    It has been a bit of a ( or at least potential) problem for me (6'1") with the narrow Claytor. I plan to spray vulnerable areas with Permethrine before the next outing. Previously, I just found a way to put a piece of clothing between me and the net.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
