I have the Hammock Bliss bugnet which is quite similar to the ENO Guardian. I found that getting out of it, particularly when in a hurry at night, was much like being birthed and just as much of a struggle (Benny Hill music in background).
I've since switched to simply draping a length of No-see-um mesh over my ridge line. Bugs follow heat signatures and are not smart enough to go under-up-and over to get to me. The lower corners are held together with grip-clips. When not needed, I simply brush it to one side.
Keeping it simple.

IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
When it is time to go for a net the WB Traveler specific one will probably be the way I will go. The zipper (front to the rear) is going to be way better for swinging the beat up legs out. Plus it will allow the "door" to be laid inside the netting and keep it out of the sticks and mud. If I want the "door" in another direction, it looks to be easily reversable too.
Now to surf on over to Jeff's post about his sock.

This is the Hammock Bliss Option
Thanks to everyone for their wisdom. I've ordered a Traveler & the WB bug net. Did a search of hammock socks and found Grizz's KISS overcover which looks pretty simple to make. Maybe a DIY project for this winter.
I just wanted to heed a little warning about the drapover style nets. I tried this thinking it would be the easiest/lightest way to go. But the mosquitos in south MS are bad news. I got bitten on the back all night the night i tried that, through the 1.9 oz ripstop. Just my experience, but have read many other people in other areas finding this solution to work great for them. I think it just has to do with the bugs of the area. "these skeeters in missippi, ul tote ya off"
