    I'll be giving this a try myself, since my WB bug net just arrived in the mail. I hope it works with my DN...this makes me nervous. There may be TWO for sale.

    I use a (newer? bought a few months ago) WB bug net with my ENO DN and the only issue I've had with mine is the ends of the hammock pushing through the velcro ends during use. Not a major deal, but last night I figured out I could run the free end of my whoopie slings though the rings on the end of the bug net, pull it tight and tie it off. Worked great!

    I didn't get to it until fairly late in the day, so I can only give initial impressions. In the next couple of days, I'll try to rope in a friend to lie in it so I can see it from the outside.

    Initial impressions: it seems to fit the DoubleNest fine, lengthwise. The trick with using the whoopie sling tails to hold the small d-rings at either end works fine, but I may play around with shock cord prusiks or something similar--I don't like having to undo the bug net if I need to make a quick adjustment to the suspension.

    All in all, it felt pretty roomy...but it felt a lot closer to me on the underside than the ENO bugnet I had before. I could put clothing, boots, whatever on the ground INSIDE the ENO and still have it inside the bugnet, for easy access. I don't think the WB net will interfere with an underquilt or anything, but I did notice it being a bit closer to me as I entered and exited. Inside and relaxing though, it was plenty of room for me. I'm not an overly large guy, though--6'1" and 190lbs.

    Now, the pluses--the view inside was SO much better than the ENO net. I don't know what the difference in netting is, but I felt isolated in the ENO, and still a part of things in the WBBN. The material also passed air better, so I could enjoy the breeze as I gently swayed to and fro. The horizontal zipper gave me much freer entrance and egress (although I will have to get used to how to best hold the loose fabric so I can get it zipped up when fully open).

    So, I like it. I may eventually regret spending the money instead of just saving up another $100 for a WBBB with the integrated net. Still, it never hurts to have a backup setup for if I want to include a friend in my travels...!

    And for now it will suit me JUST fine.

    Glad it worked for you. Nice piece of gear!
