    US Army Skeeta Tent Mod for hammock

    I have a brand new US Army Skeeta Tent mosquito net that I got at our local A/N store.

    I was thinking about sewing in an elastic cord around the periphery of the bottom edge of the mossie net to "hug" my hammock. Has anyone done something similar? Ideas? Concerns?

    Thanks R/S

    Yep. Fronkey has step-by-step instructions for a "from scratch" net that uses shock cord in just that manner located here.

    Hope it helps!
