    What kind of zipper does your favorite bug net have?

    A recent question posed by Mouseskowitz inspired me to create this poll. Bug season is fast approaching! Thanks for participating.

    Surely, God could have made a better way to sleep.

    Surely, God never did.

    My bugnet is Fronkey inspired, so it doesn't have a zipper

    NO Zipper for me cause when I want to get out of my hammock I don't want to fumble for a zipper. When you gotta go...

    I've made two types so far, one was Pips which I really like The other was built-in with zippers on both sides which changed the shape of the hammock; I didn't like it for that reason.

    My No-See-Em Bug Net is just part of my Clark Hammock and when it gets unzipped and tucked into its little pocket home on the hammock, it is a real
    N0-See -EM !!! Cause its no longer there but just tucked away awaiting a little tug to zip it back in place. That puts a smile on my face!
    PS:
    I have those cool little glow in the dark zipper pulls, they really come in handy!!

    Ditto. I do not care for anything making it harder for me to get up and out ASAP. I wish I didn't need a bug net at all.
