    The ENO Guardian is 16oz (I weighed it at 431g including sack and compression straps), and the Warbonnet is 7.5oz. You could trim the weight a little by ditching the sack and compression straps, but the major difference is the fabric; the ENO uses a heavier, super-fine mesh. It's built tough.

    Of course, most of my travel is by water, so weight is less important.

    What kind of bug sock is best for a ENO DN

    I got the Guardian with my REI dividend last year. After a few trips I wanted something lighter and easier.

    I found it in the BIAS Buginator, another vote for it. I've only tried 2 bugnets; there could be better options on the market. Unlike most of my gear however I'm not looking for better options because I'm so pleased with the Buginator.

    I have the ENO Guardian, but am seriously looking at getting the Grand Trunk mosquito net, due to the fact that the GT goes all the way to the ground and has a floor with stake out points. Of course, I am completely unconcerned with weight at this point due to the fact that all of my camping is done with Cub Scouts, AKA car camping.

    I used to use the ENO bug net, but I switched to the Warbonnet Travel Net due to weight, and here's an observation. The half moon style zipper on the Warbonnet is difficult when there is any weight in the net, like clothes or an extra quilt. It's even a little difficult when there is no weight. I like the straight vertical zipper on the ENO much better because you can have all the gear in the world in the net, and it's still very easy to zip up. I don't like how low the ENO hangs though, and sometimes it's in the dirt if you don't hang high enough.

    I think the zipper issue is the nature of using a light zipper. That's probably a portion of the weight savings between the two. Just hold behind the zipper as you unzip.
