    The overlapping SEEP will only keep out flying bugs. The only way a SEEP will keep out crawling bugs is a closure, like velcro or a zipper.

    How about if you keep the SEEP you have, and add a bugnet to that? Stake out your 'door' to keep it up, and fill the opening with a zippered bugnet.

    Like a curtain?

    My concern is getting too warm. I like not having a sock at all it it isn't necessary and the current bug sock is perfect for how I like it. If the bugs go away at dusk then I can leave it all the way down. I think the only reason I would make a bug-net with a SEEP is just to see if I could make it work. And thinking about that, the deals I would have to cut with my wife might not make it worth it LOL.

    I was thinking about attaching bugnet that is cut mostly identical to the DWR door, and sewn in the same seam as the lower layer of the two. Put tie strings along on each side of the net in the seam. In summer, deploy the bugnet door, in winter, tie it out of the way and deploy the DWR door. The ties can tie the one not used into a roll along the seam.

    You could do that. I consider the bug net and the winter sock on opposite ends of the spectrum of my gear. It would be like making a down pair of swim trunks the way I think.

    I'm sure there is a way to do it though.
