    WTB: ultralight no-see-um bug sock

    I'm looking for a very light bug sock with no-see-um grade mesh for a gathered end hammock that is about 108" over all.

    the lightest one out there is the one papa smurf makes
    he uses tulle it's under 3oz and it's around $50 thats about the best deal your going to find ....
    they don't come up for sale often
    he also sells tulle buy the yard at a pretty good price
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I haven't got it yet but it's in the mail. Dp hammocks sells a torso length one. It weighs almost nothing- 3/4 of an ounce. I will post when I get a chance to use it. Just sayin.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Oh, seven ounces or less. It seems that most of the production ones like ENO are more like 16oz and that is too much. A Warbonnet would be great, or one like Papa Smurf makes, etc.

    I have a papa smurf bug sock on order out of Tulle. Projected weight is about 2.6oz

    I believe he has a Noseeum Bug sock in stock (well he did when I was emailing him 1 week ago) which runs around 8.5oz I believe that one is $65 plus shipping.

    FOUND: ultralight no-see-um bug sock

    Okay, I'm bowing to the wisdom of the tribe and ordered a Papa Smurf tulle version. 2.8oz for full coverage is pretty light Thanks for all the advice and help!
