    just a thought... seems that they would be pretty easy to clip & un-clip to a shock cord. but i don't know how well they would stay put if they didn't have some tension on them.
    just thinking out loud

    Definitely worth thinking about - let us know how they work if you manage to get some!

    hi funbun!
    there is type of bugnet that is easily removable and adequately covers the bottom. I saw this one at Jeff's website and at yahoo http://www.tothewoods.net/HammockCampingBugfree.html. I think the guy who designed it was Mirage at yahoo hammock camping. It has velcro at both ends and shock corded edges which will help the netting snug the mammock securely on the side/bottom. I already made one. Its easy to get in or out because of the shock cored sides. I made mine a little bit wider to totally cover the bottom of the hammock.
