I made a small stuff sack out of the same material as the hammock and with the bug net in the stuff sack the whole thing comes to 2.65 oz. I used mason line for the under channel instead of shock cord, because I find shock cord binds up on tulle.

    Terrific!

    That looks awesome and you did a great job! You're cousin looks comfy and skeeter free. Glad it worked out for you and thanks for reporting in with your results.

    Hey Fronkey,

    That looks like a super easy net to make. I may have to try one. Thanks for posting such a good video and step by step photos, that really helps.
    Take care,

    Thanks again, Fronkey!

    Am just about to try my hand at building myself a bridge hammock and have been trying to think about a way to build a removable net that isn't as fussy to make as some of the bridge netting that I have seen. I like the wrap-around net that I have from Warbonnet Guy that I use right now and was thinking about trying to modify that style for my bridge somehow. Your bungee bottom is even better and I will now use that as a starting point.

    Any ideas out there for how to convert this to work with a bridge would also be great

    Just really love the idea of being able to remove the net when the weather gets cooler to offset the weight of the heavier UQ/TQ's. Man, really loving the bungee bottom idea!

    That's too funny as just the other day I watched all of Grizz's how to vids for his hammock and was making a material list to start one of my own.

    Are you making a Grizz Bridge too?

    The net would for sure work with a bridge hammock and I've already thought of some ways on how to do it as well. Once I make a bridge hammock, I will probable re-hash these instructions so someone can apply it to a bridge.

    All, to roll with this idea, could a climate pod be made out of rip-stop with the same plan?

    For those with shorter hammocks, you could use mosquito nets from Academy/Wal mart. They are 8 bucks and would have enough material.
    Look up before you hook up!!

    That's really cool! I bookmarked your photobucket album. All the pictures you have of your grizzbridge will really help with visuals on making one for myself. Plus, I really like your design and will have some questions for you in a few weeks when I get to the bug net stage. Thanks a lot!

    Thanks a lot dude! lmoseley7 already made one from my design out of tulle and said it came out at 2.65 oz. It will be a fun project for sure. Thanks again!

    You know, I'm not sure if you could. However, it would be a lot of fun to try it out.

    This just came at the right time. I've been wanting to make a removable bugnet for my GT Utralight. This is perfect! Really enjoy your vids as well!
