    I made this bugnet today and I must say, it is AWESOME! Exactly what I was looking for. There will be no critters crawling on me at night! Thanks Fronkey!

    Ya know, I was all focused on the "clean" look and finish of an attached net but the more testimonials I hear I'm starting to love the simplicity. Little extra fabric but no added weight from zippers and webbing for reinforcing a zipper, so probably evens out on the weight factor. And a whole lot less sewing and engineering!

    Now I just need to find some netting ( Wife keeps me on a tight budget )

    Video: How to make a hammock bug net

    I have a roll of bug screen used on sliding glass doors, it's heavier than netting. Going to try making one out of it.

    Finished my bug net today to complete my all homemade package.
    It turned out great, I double stiched all the seams and put a 3 inch piece of velcrow on the top where my ridge line will poke through.

    I first made a single layer hammock from ripstop nylon from Joann Fabrics.
    It turned out ok, but I wanted a double layer so I could put my Thermarest in between. I ordered most of my supplies from DIY Gear for the double layer hammock the new straps and the bug net.

    I made an under quilt from a poncho liner and I had a nice 10x 12 square tent rain fly that I'm using for my tarp.

    Thanks to everyone on this forum for the great picture and videos.
    I'm all set to go camping if spring will ever arrive in Minnesota this year.

    Awesome job gadget man! Those bugs are going to be ferocious this year and it sounds like you will be good to go.

    Hey Fronkey, just made my first "Fronkey Net" this weekend and it turned out very respectable. It was my first time using a sewing machine, so my seams are a bit irregular, but all in all looks pretty good. I used a semi-flat felled seam for the ridge, and some cross grain reinforcement at the openings for the ridgeline.
    Also, made my first Amsteel whoopie slings and Poly Tree Huggers. :-)
    THANKS for sharing your design and posting your video!

    That's awesome Docta. Great job!

    You're for sure going to have a great season for camping this year and it will feel even better knowing you made it all yourself.
