    Inside, Outside, leave me alone...

    Inside outside, leave me alone
    inside outside, nowhere is home
    inside outside, where have i been?
    Outta my brain, hangin the hammock again... /The Who (yes there is a Quadrophenia Tour 2012/13)

    apologies to Pete, Roger, John and Kieth

    Hanging my ENO Guardian Net is a must here in the swamp but what I am wondering is, UnderQuilt, or in my case DIY sleeping bag conversion, inside or outside of the bug net? Gotta get these skeeters to leave me alone...

    Right now I have it setup inside so I can adjust it but are there any reasons to maybe have it on the outside of the netting?

    Immediate feedback will be applied asap as I am writing this whilst resting in the hammock outside, in the dark, with the net, as the night creatures begin to sing, chirp,grunt, screech and otherwise make a racket.

    No reason I can think of to put the UQ outside of the bug net.

    +1 on leaving it on the outside. Being able to adjust it is one of the reasons for me not buying a WBBB. With the bug net, I think to adjust the UQ would be a PITA. Also with the extra weight of the bug net inside the UQ, I would think you may need to tighten the suspension to keep it from sagging, but this may not be a problem.

    One of the greatest albums of all time!

    As long as the netting is loose enough so that it doesn't interfere with the loft of the UQ, and for the reasons mentioned above, I think it makes the most sense to leave it inside the net.

    Leave the UQ inside the bugnet.

    First, you can adjust the UQ without exposing yourself to the bugs.
    Second, the UQ will hold the netting up against the hammock allowing the mosquitos to bite through it to you!

    Like others have said, keeping it inside will help with adjusting it and may keep the bug net away from your face more.
