    do some searching around for a "fronkey bug net" or something similar to that. It's a very simple design and pretty much anyone that can sew a line can make one.

    Check out Paul at www.arrowheadequipment.webs.com for Derick's "The Hug" bugnet (~$38.00). Very UL and functional. Only covers head and torso assuming you already have lower body coverage with TQ or sleeping bag.
    For a full-length try www.warbonnetoutdoors.com. Traveler net is in hammock section for $65.00

    I made the Fronkey style net a couple of weeks ago. My first adventure with the thread injector. Great instructions on how to from Fronkey's vid.
    The Noseeum was hard to find at the time, but got it through ebay for about $4/yd. Butt In A Sling makes a similar design, which is a great concept with the shock cord bottom. Materials alone are about $32.00 +/-

    By the time you pay shipping for materials and gettjng it back to you, you're probably as well off just to buy one from one of the vendors here.

    All I can say is, "Good Mosquito Netting is expensive" so don't cheap out and buy a cheap one. The best netting material I have seen comes from the Vermont Army/Navy store.

    Two other good retail suppliers: www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com and www.owfinc.com with an edge to backwoodsdaydreamer for ease of ordering and speed of shipping.

    I've ordered from all three cited, including Vermont Barre, and all three are excellent.
