    Are the holes in the netting as big as they look? Do you have any bugs coming in through it?

    The holes are larger than in Noseeum, but I have not had any problems with bugs getting as of yet. I am considering soaking it in permethrin for extra protection

    Also, the mosquitoes here in Texas are the size of volkswagons, that might be why the larger holes aren't posing any problems Off course, that brings up whole new reasons to hide from them which is why I tried to go with a camo type netting.

    Yep - noseeums in the southeast will eat you alive if you use netting with big holes. And the worst part...you can't see 'em to squash them.

    I saw some nettings like that one being used by soldiers(snipers) with their Gilly suite. The holes seems big. But it looks nice for stealth camping.

    Man with the alergies I have to camo, I would hate to see how long I would have to spend in a hospital in a gillie hammock with a gillie tarp.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
