    Bug Net for dbl nest ENO help

    Hi, I need to invest in a bug net because I plan on doing the first 26 miles of the app trail in Ga. Is the ENO Guardian bug net the best for the ENO or is there a better and cheaper net i can buy for the ENO that is just as good?
    God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.

    Get the Warbonnet Traveler Bug Net. It costs the same, but its less than half the weight of the ENO. And like 1/3 the weight of the HammockBliss.

    Wilderness Logics has a net comparable in weight, size, and cost to the Warbonnet net with a slightly different zipper configuration.

    You can go to your local Academy or Dicks and pick up two of the Coghlans camp cot bugnets. When one is out of the package you will see that it is seemed to a rectangular top piece of netting and along one of the corners of the "wall" section of netting. I started cutting up the wall seem and then around the rectangular top on both of the bugnets. This will eventually give you two long pieces of netting. Where the netting formed the square top on both bugnets I sewed this together which is the apex of my hammock bugnet. Lay this over your ridgeline and mark the length you need and cut at this point. You will have almost enough material to outfit two hammocks. The net just drapes over the edge of the hammock, I have had no issues bugs getting in to me.

    Good Luck if you decide to do this........oh this cost me an afternoon and $20!!!!!!

    I dont have experience with specific made hammock bug nets but I can tell you three things

    1: The ENO Guardian is the cheapest at $54
    2: I have used the Coghlans cot net method now for a while and while it works its actually REALLY cluttered and uncomfortable to just drape over so I will be saving for a WB or WL bugnet ( I want to support the forum and those who help further it so I see this as a full circle thing)
    3: You should dip whatever net you buy into a .5% Permethrin bath so you can really keep off ( MURDER!!! MURDER THEME MERCILESSLY!! ) any bug that touches it.

    How much does this set up weigh, for one outfit? And is there anyway you could provide a vid or a diagram. Im trying my darndest to picture what you're describing, but I seem to be a visual gent.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    this setup is not that heavy in the hand but bulky because of the excess. I dont have a scale in the house but it is something under a pound I would think.
