    How to put suspension and bug net on Nano 7?

    I love my Nano 7, but I have not used it yet. It comes with carabiners in each end, but I don't know what I will need to hook them up on two trees. Your help is needed.
    After hooking them up, how should I add a bug net without simply landing it on my face each night. I have the netting, and it will need to be cut and fixed.

    Toss the biners, get whoopies and tree straps from one of the very fine vendors that frequent here. If you install a "structural ridge line" (SRL)it will keep the net out of your face and make setup a snap. A SRL is jus' fancy talk for a strong string (like zing-it) or cord tied off to each end of the hammock. Mine is attached to the whoopie slings where they are attached to the hammock. I fiddled around until I got a length that felt good and haven't touched it since.

    HI CrankyOldGuy, thank you for the advice. Where did you get your whoopies from?

    Get some tree huggers to connect your Whoopie slings to. You can still use the biners to connect the sling to the huggers or use a marlin spike hitch. I use Dutch ware but just about anything will work. Pick up the Ultimate Hang Book for a guide to get started.

    I like a bug sock for use with my nano 7. Simple and effective.Mine is from Papa Smurf.

    I got one set of whoopies and straps from JacksRBetter.com and one from ButtInASling.com. Both work perfectly.

    Follow Up Question

    Are the tree slings from GT any good? And what else will I need besides slings?

    Besides the slings, you'll need tree straps and a means of attaching the whoopies to the straps. Some prefer toggles and some use dutch clips. both work very well.
