    zipper on HH bugnetting?

    on HH has anyone ever put a zipper on a section of the bugnet so that you could unzipp it so that you can reach stuff thats outside of your hammock without getting out?

    Yep - there are pics on the Yahoo hammockcamping group...I think in T-Back's gallery. He's here, too - don't think he's posted pics here yet. Other folks have done it, too. headchange, maybe?

    Dunno about HC for sure or not. I do know that he's made a HH clone with a zip-out bugnet and a zip-out solid cover. BTW, for anyone who's seen it, they can vouch that it is a VERY WELL MADE piece of DIY gear. I can only hope that my sewing skills can become half of what HC's are, given my difficulty making sure my machine is threaded correctly.

    Jayzilla added one to his HH a while ago. Check out this thread.

    I have the zipper to do mine but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. I will take some pics and post a tutorial when I do it.
