    JRB BMB bug net tricks?

    Anyone have a trick to setting up the bug net on the JRB BMB?

    It seems that no matter what I do (including having someone try to put on while I was in it) it always was several inches longer than the hammock leaving gaps.

    Any suggestions.

    DGrav,

    It was designed to have about 4 extra inches.... The Catenary sides stretch differently with each occupant... also you will see that the curve changes as you vary from centered to the end ... and most significantly as you slide back to the "lounging recliner position"... The extra allow you to close the omnitape regardless of the position and subsequent changes on the catrenary sides of the BMBH.... As to the extra, because the omnitape closes on its self simply pinch the excess together and it will be sealed....It is designed for a loose fit so that as you move around in the hammock you will not tension the fit which could result in the omni tape separating....

    Bottomline...The "extra" makes the attachment an easy and secure process.

    We will have a five day hiking hang to teach you all the BMBH tricks....Six and a wake up....
