    I use el cheapie carabiners to attach my bugnet lines to my suspension straps (the mule made)








    note that I got both lines to the biner so it only takes attaching the biner to the cinch buckle on the straps and it's in place.





    I use a trucker's hitch near the zipper of the bug net so I can easily adjust the tension on the bug net while I'm sitting and putting full weight on the hammock. usually I don't even have to adjust this as it's oh so close each and every time I hang.





    yup, that stuff bag is totally useless down there. but I do keep my boots down there so they are bug free. after I sew in my bathtub floor it'll be waterproof too!

    That looks like it would work out well. Until it gets alot warmer I leave the UQ attached so I can't do what you did. The opening at the ends of the bugnet aren't big enough for the hammock and quilt. So for now I do have to unclip one end of the hammock and feed it through the bugnet from the zipper opening. Not a huge deal, and when I ditch the UQ I'll set it up like you have.

    Not an Eno, but a DIY Speer, and not an Eno bugnet, but a DIY equivalent...

    I pack the whole shebang into a "Black Bishop Sack". Clip the suspension around the tree on one end, feed the hammock and bug net out of the big end, clip the suspension on the other end, relax, sleep, dream...

    In the morning, unclip 1, stuff, unclip 2, shove it into your pack, hike, ...

    BB sack = stuff sack with a big enough hole on the closed end for your suspension to poke through. Leave the sack hanging from your suspension on one end, under the tarp, to use as a holder for miscellaneous stuff you don't want to put on the ground.

    nope, not done yet. I want to get some samples of materials and it won't be til july until I can have a family member do some sewing for me. I can slit the bottom of the bug net, pin the floor into place, but need a machine to finish off the job. the problem though lies in the fact that I'll be using my hammock every day for two months starting in july ...... like I did last year. so this means only a few hours of down time before I set up camp again!

    pics were taken in upstate NY, in the Adirondack Mountains.
    I'm presently up there for the summer.

    I had an idea for adding a second zipper to the bug net. It would replace either the left or right seam of the bugnet. This would make it easier to slide the net over, actually under, the hammock without having to remove every thing out of the hammock--aka--foam pads, underquilts, pea pods or what every. The same type of zipper that is used on the guardian bugnet would work for the modification. I'll post pics when I get the mod done.
