    Very good idea if I was in the wilderness and my gear messed up man I would be in trouble. Before I go out in the wilderness I try to have an over night camp so I can see if my gear has any trouble and I can adjust now before I am late.

    That is exactly the situation. He said he went back to the store and they made it right, but.....

    Now I'm even more confused. If there was no slider, how was the zipper zipped in the first place?

    I bet you got the magic version with an enchanted zipper. All you needed were the proper incantations to open and close it.

    Same thing!

    I got a new ENO Guardian net a couple of months ago. The very same thing w/mine! Just zipper "stock" sewn in from top to bottom w/no tongue or the thing the tongue attaches to either. (I don't know the correct term for all these zipper parts!) That's why you couldn't open it with needle nose pliers or small string, etc. There was nothing to grab!!

    I called customer service. They were very nice. I sent it to them and they promptly sent me another one. I got the original one off ebay.

    The second one is perfect. I like to way it opens vertically. When it's unzipped, it's not hanging wide open to allow bugs a bigger target to enter.

    Trust me, there were plenty of incantations used.

    I had the same problem a while back. In fact, the replacement that ENO sent me had the same problem, and it was missing some stitching in a couple other areas. The third net was finally free. Eno loaded me up with stickers and drink coozies for my troubles, and let me keep the second messed up net.
    with two m's, like "hammock."

    when i got my GT it didn't come with any tree straps but i took it out opened it up to lust look it over like an hour befor my trip. NO straps so on the way out I got some polly tie downs and made them work. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do
    It's not the fall im scared of, it's the sudden stop at the end!!!

    i have never ever, ever forgotten to check my gear since then.

    ps. the game warden came by and asked me why i had no bolt. i told the story. he checked my license and asked "is your dad the county's hunter safety instructor?" i said "yes". they never let my dad forget this day
    I few weeks ago my dad, my brother, and I went to the public shooting range and I forgot to pack our ammo! I had to drive 35min each way to get it. I don't think they'll let me live it down. But hey, it's a learning experience and I guarantee I'll never forget the ammo again!

    DIY guys and gals know why there was no zipper pull. Zippers don't usually come with a pull unless you get one of a specific length. Its easy for a big company to forget a zipper pull, they got a lot going on. For this reason I buy cottage.
