    Bug nets are next on our agenda. Hope to have something soon. Things took off better than expected and doesn't leave much time for prototyping.
    It'll be alright Friday!

    Will do Jason. We just ordered several different materials an hour ago and hopefully work on them next week. Brian and I both have different ideas/preferences. I'm not big on the NoSeeUm, and like the plain mesh. Any preferences out there? Just cause I like it, doesn't mean that's what we'll end up with.

    Brian said you have had tulle material and I want to try that for a bugnet. Super light and perfect to accompany a Weight Weenie/WW Micro.

    We've got two designs we're going with... One is the Smokescreen (tncamper came up with the name for this net inspired by our friend Smokehouse) and the other is a Fronkey design with a bungie bottom (the Bungey Screen?) opening that cinches up to the bottom of the hammock that's for terrified folks like me who were raised in places like the Mississippi Delta where a furry woods mosquito the size of a small chicken is the state bird and they travel in swarms.

    We've got multiple fabrics to do R&D with including the tulle, a military netting and a lightweight netting. Once we nail the design and decide on the right materials, we'll release it. Tacky, I like the tulle for light, but it's a bit brittle... if tncamper and I can satisfy our concerns that it will last and that our customers will like it, we'll go with it.

    Stay tuned.

    I have heard that tulle is fragile and will rip easier. For the weight savings I will chance it.

    bug net?

    I've pretty much decided I want to get the WWM. I started my hammocking with the GT UL and it suited me just fine. When I switched to the slightly smaller GT Nano7, it's just not as comfortable...I seem to always get an ache in my right shoulder which I'm assuming is because it's shorter.

    But reading about the bug net is really exciting. I can't wait to see what the weights are.

    Any idea on the time frame?

    I'm going to aim for the end of next week (depending on day job and orders) It's spring break here and Brian took off this past weekend to camp out with his family, so I'm taking this coming weekend with mine.

    While I'm typing this, I'm "watching" Mickey Mouse club house with my 4 yr old. She kept telling me to "Look Daddy". When I finally looked up, Donald had mud on his hammock. That's my girl!

    Nice! Can't wait to see what you guys come up with. Will be needing a net myself come summer.

    Cheers

    I agree TNJared! Short AND narrow is not comfortable for me. I find, though, that increasing the length (10'6 to 11 feet) helps compensate a lot for narrowing width. 52x126 is about my sweet spot. Our WWM is actually 52x132... that's four inches wider, two feet longer than the GT Nano 7. I wouldn't want a hammock narrower than 52 inches. Likewise, I wouldn't want one shorter than 120 inches.

    And if you call 60x120 perfect (and I do), I'd say as you shave width, you'll find more length makes for a more comfortable hang -- which is why 52x132 is such a great fit for me when I want to shave a little weight.
