    NCP's Bug bivvy v.2

    Here's a link to pictures of my latest bug bivvy.

    As I posted somewhere before:

    I just finished making my second bug bivvy, a noseeum tube, (2 pieces of 125" x approx. 59" hemmed black noseeum sewn together, 96" #5 zipper with 2 reversable pulls on one seam, drawstrings on the ends). It was pretty easy to make and looks good, imo.

    BTW, this was for my speer-type hammock, top loader.

    I'll post some pictures in the gallery.

    Looks good. At some point I am thinking about doing one with noseeum on top and DWR or 1.1 untreated on bottom. A sock to trap in the heat, or keep the bugs out. I may have to borrow some of your work when it comes to pass.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Thanks. I just went for the easiest thing I could think of, with a zipper. This one can be for hotter weather. I may try a 1/2 DWR version for fall or spring, when dusk temps are a little cooler. And a full sock for winter. I've got some extra DWR lying around that's NOT camo.

    Lots of projects still to get done.

    Well, who would want a thing like that? Yuk! Seriously, HE would be proud.

    You'll be bug free in that thing for sure. It looks great. You sewing skills have really become top notch.

    Thanks. I appreciate it. No bugs will get in, except for the ones I bring in with me.

    What's next for you?

    Down quilt or bridge hammock. Probably the bridge hammock.
