    WB Bug Netting Question

    I've looked everywhere for this, but Warbonnet really doesn't give a lot of bug net information. Where I am I don't really get to see many hammock toys without a long drive or ordering, I figured this would be the best place to ask, especially because it's an extremely simple question

    So the simple question is...

    I have a Trek Light Hammock with Carabiner/Rope pack to hang my hammock. Will the WB Bug Net be compatible with my hammock? If so, then that rocks and I will be looking for one

    Yes it will. You will however need a structural ridgeline to support the bugnet. A structural ridgeline is a length of cord that attaches to both ends of the hammock. It is generally used to give you a consistent sag. It is also used to hang gear off of and as mentioned support a bugnet.

    Yes. I have a Trek Light double and a WB Traveler, and the WB bug net fits on both. I debated between the WB bug net and the Eno. Folks seemed to like both, but since I was ordering the Traveler, I decided to get them together. I like the generous "frowning face" zipper. Brandon has put little rings on the ends above the end openings that are helpful to rig the net taut on a hammock with a ridgeline, or to suspend the net independently if you don't have a ridgeline. Very nice product.

    As cataraftgirl mentioned, you can use the supplied rings to suspend the bugnet but I preferred to support it with a SRL. YMMV

    I too was looking at the Eno and the WB, but it seems that after looking at a few resources I've heard a few complaints that the suspension guy-line that comes with the Eno is rather cheap and seems like it might come apart. At least in one youtube video and a few online sources I'd found.

    I've yet to hear any complaints about the WB, and since the Trek Light one didn't get the greatest reviews yet (nothing against Trek Light, everything else I have of theirs is nothing short of exquisite) I figured that would be the one if I could use it!

    Thanks guys, going to put something up in the Buy ads

    Plus the Eno weighs a pound. The WB net is 7.5 ounces.
    It's only an addiction if your trying to quit
