    Our widest hammock comes in at 71-72 inches (Camper XL) and is 11 feet long (same length as all our hammocks).

    The Buginator fits all of our hammocks, from the small WWM 52 (132" x 52") to the Camper XL (132" x 72"). It also fits shorter hammocks from other manufacturers fine, too as well as all (60"x126") tablecloth hammocks we've made. Wider, shorter hammocks work, too... like the ENO Doublenest.

    The only necessary piece of equipment for using it is a ridgeline (which holds it up).

    Some examples of hammocks it will fit (besides all of our own):
    ENO Singlenest
    ENO Doublenest
    Tablecloth Hammock - 60"x126"
    GT Ultralight
    GT Nano 7
    GT Singlehammock
    GT Doublehammock
    Warbonnet Traveler
    WL Snipe
    WL Night Owl/Lite Owl
    I can also confirm that it fits my 11' x 90" tablecloth hammock as though it were made specifically for it.

    I love my Buginator. Wish I had a nano!

    If you open the bottom of the Buginator, you can sit in your hammock. Your head and body will be covered by the net, but your feet will stick out. You can't slide it left or right. You might be able to kind of push it behind you, but it's not ideal. Brian, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I have loosened up one of the ends and "slid" my hammock through where the whole net was bunched up a one end. I wouldn't recommend doing this a ton as it did drag on the ground. I agree about the "pushing it behind you" not being ideal.

    Like any design, this one has tradeoffs. I see the sitting issue being one of those. David is right. Sitting up and hanging out in the hammock is fine as long as you don't mind your feet sticking out of the net while the rest of you is inside of it. Sliding it down to one end or the other isn't really an option either. Pushing the net behind you creates counterpressure as the net pulls against the hammock near the suspension line (on the ends). It works, but it's not something I'd get in the habit of doing. Wear and tear and all that...

    Taking the net off and on takes some getting used to. As Shane says often, the net goes on like a T-Shirt. Over the top, arms out the sides (suspension holes). Dutchware Whoopie Hooks make this a breeze. I am not trying to sell you the hooks, but I am pointing out how quickly the process comes together when you unhook, pull the net off the suspension, rehook, go to the other end, same process, voila, net off. Takes no more than a minute.

    Re: BIAS Nano Buginator Sale

    I just demo'd the nano at a hiking conference last weekend. Though I'd practiced at home the wind made it quite interesting to attach. It wasn't quite ad smooth as I would've liked. Once it's situated, though, it's quite nice.

    I can agree with that sentiment. I put one on in high wind (20 mph winds with 30 mph gusts) and it was not without its challenges. That's when it's good to have a bag large enough to hold it while it's attached to the hammock (which I did and I left it attached until cold weather came along).

    I use it mainly on my micro so I use the same method as Shane and it works great.
    With the micro it is very easy to just slide it to one end..

    I might try leaving it on. My Lite Owl is great w/o the net but it won't be long before that's an impossible option.
