    Warbonnet Traveller Bug net

    Hey folks,

    Just wondering if someone could tell me whether or not the Warbonnet Traveller comes with the bug net that I see in the photos on the website?

    Thanks!

    Are there any benefits to having the bug netting be a separate piece, other than of course being able to leave it at home for cold weather camping or places where bugs aren't as much an issue? I am trying to decide which type of hammock setup to D.I.M. (myself) with.

    It is lighter to have an attached bugnet, than to have both.

    However, the benefit to having the unattached bugnet is you don't have to get a second hammock to get the option of going bugnetless.

    I prefer to have the unattached bugnet because I like the option of not using one while I'm out there.

    If you're looking to make your own gear you can actually make a gathered end hammock and a bugnet for cheaper than buying one.

    Or you can go really light with something like DPHammock's 1/2 length bug net.

    You're usually going to have some sort of OQ covering the other half. $20.00
    This place you say your lookin' for
    It might have washed out with the rain
    Might not be there anymore
    Might not be the same

    Top that rise and face the pain

    Another vote for keeping them separate. If there are no bugs, it's much nicer to hang without the netting. The weight penalty of carrying both is minuscule, unless you're trying to shave that last 1-2oz.
