    Video: BIAS WWM Updates & Bugnet

    Hey guys, I made a video showing some of the updates that I've made to my BIAS Weight Weenie Micro hammock, along with the DIY attached, zippered bug net that I've added. Now I love this hammock even more. Hope you enjoy.

    Very awesome, I was wondering if anyone had added a bugnet to any of the BIAS Hammocks.

    There are two rules for success:

    Looks awesome...

    My only concern would be getting bitten through the thin hammock material, but permethrin would solve that issue I'm sure...

    I was in a particularly mosquito infested place... The buzzing kept me up at night. I thought the mosquitoes were inside the net (they weren't) because it was so loud. You could clap your hands and kill three mosquitoes. I never got bitten through the hammock... I was clothed, and if I feared being bitten, I would have put down a layer under me... blanket, etc.

    That said, my elbows and forearms got eaten alive where they touched the net. Bugs bit through the net easily and I had soaked it in permethrin. I learned to keep my arms off the net after that.
