    "Best" bugnet system?

    Hey all!

    I'm looking for the easiest, breathable, lightweight bug net system for my bridge hammock.

    Any and all suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks!

    I'm speaking with no experience here, but Fronkies DIY bugnet looks pretty easy and universal.

    It would be unnecessarily big for a bridge hammock. As I recall, shug made a net for his bridge.

    I've been giving it some thought and I'm thinking of buying the BIAS bugnet and then doing some modifications to work with my bridge.

    I've got some ideas for making one myself, but alas... I have not a sewing machine.

    Those guys at BIAS are pretty handy and great to talk to. Even if you are considering doing your own Bridge Mods to the Buganator, I'll bet they could offer a bunch of help or offer to do it very cheaply.

    Either way I know they'd like to receive input on this. Good Luck!
    This place you say your lookin' for
    It might have washed out with the rain
    Might not be there anymore
    Might not be the same

    I'm making my Fronky out of tulle this weekend. For a noob like me, this method seems the most reasonable, easiest and cheap at this point.
