    Integrated Bugnet Rollover

    I made a diy wbbb. When I get in, and in assuming it is directed related to putting weight in the footbox, the bugnet rolls over the ridgeline quite far. The zippered side panel comes up and over. Not really a problem except for some visibility off in that direction. Just wondered if this was normal and if anyone has a solution for it.

    As long as the fabric or net isn't getting super stressed, you'll be alright.

    Double check that your rl and suspension ends aren't twisted as well.
    I've had mine get twisted in the stuff sack before and it makes the hammy hang goofy.

    +1 Pics, but it sounds normal to me.

    And from the inside. I doesn't seem to be under unrealistic tension. It just looks goofy to me. If I had to do it again I would have made that whole panel out of noseeum.

    I see what you're saying... Looks like your bugnet could be a little wider.

    I stake out the sides of my hammock when I pin my net up . . .

    Give the hammock a few test runs and see how it holds up.

    Yep. In the world of integrated cat-cut bugnet, you usually have a high side, its the nature of the beast. If the netting is too wide, it will be floppy.

    If I had to do it again I would have made that whole panel out of noseeum.
    Sometimes less is more.
    A learning experience.
    Interesting twist on the multi-colors.
