    Guardian bug net Inside out.

    I have a whoopee sling SRL on my DN and I put the guardian bug net on inside out. This allowed me to use the plastic hooks to keep the bug net in place when I use the zipper. This also keeps the stuff sack off the ground.

    I'm getting out tomorrow and I'll take some pix.

    I use both. Where i live mosquitoes drink permethrin for shiggles. The bug net keeps them at a distance so I can at least get some sleep.

    I'd def like to see some pics, Coil.

    peace.

    I took pix and you can't even tell it's inside out.

    I'm gonna buy a WBBB next and use the ENO setup for car camping.

    Ha. Maybe in UT that works but over on the east coast in the mid-atlantic region we have to use bug nets. The skeeters are the size of fighter jets

    Coil, great ingenuity, and other owners of the guardian bugnet may find that method useful. Thanks for the post.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    I second that. Canadian mosquitos, black flies, and triangle flies think deet/perm./picard. are tasty margaritas. Without a bugnet, you'd be in hell from dusk til' dawn

    That's a great idea! I camped on an island on the 4th of July and without a bug net I would have been fighting the unusually large bugs that inhabited that place. We all noticed it...It was like being in the Land of the Lost!
