    Thanks for that, hangout...did you end up putting any kind of flap over the top?

    ...any full-scale pictures now...?

    I think the top cover works better (easier) when you use the orginial design with entry on both sides. If I made it to only enter on one side I would use the flap design.

    No new pics but I am trying for a trip this weekend and will post some pics after that

    I think I understand...so no top cover, easy entry from both sides...possible small gap at top...?

    I would use the top cover with a hammock with entry from both sides. The top cover will lay on top of bugnet and seal both sides.

    If I made the hammock with entry from only one side I would just sew a flap made from bug net on the fixed side and let it go over the top of the entry side.

    Both ways will work, it is just personal preference. I like being able to reach out of both sides for UQ adjustments etc.

    Clear as mud?

    The arc

    I tried to do up a model and I followed your instructions for creating the arc. ( I used to build boats so mapping out a curve is not foreign.) BUT it just didn't seem to work out.

    I used the length of my SRL as the length of the bugnet and that seemed to make it too short. Looking at the video of your model I guess I should have used the entire length of the hammock -- minus the whipping.

    I haven't made one yet, but I believe that the bugnet does need to be at least as long as the hammock sides because when you pull it down to exit, it will essentially follow the curve of the hammock edge. At least, that's the way I see it.

    Here is the video of my twist on this concept. Now someone else has to try this. I don't want it to go in my huge journal of irreproducible results.

    That's a great idea!
