    Bug net in stuff sack?

    Hi all. Should I fold my bug net, roll it or does it matter. I would like to just stuff it in a sack but will doing this ruin it? Thanks

    I've always stuffed nets and tarps to avoid wear from folded creases.

    This time of year, I don't even bother to take the bug net off my hammock. It all goes in the stuff sack together.

    Hey Gresh...that's a good idea. I'll have to make a larger bishop bag to store them together. Tnx.

    Same as Gresh. It stays on. While you are making a bishop, you can make it big enough to hold everything; mine holds my hammy, net, top quilt, bottom quilt and my jammies. There is a hole in the bishop just big enough for the whoopies to exit. I undo the head end and stuff toward the tree. The tree straps can be removed if wet. That bundle goes in a pack liner in the bottom of my pack.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Hey Two Tents....my uq and tq are made from climashield so getting them all in a bishop bag would be difficult. But it's still a good idea. Tnx.

    Think big. It'll go. Make a compression bishop kinda! One of my sacks doubles as an end protector for the hammock. I modified a big sleeping bag storage sack into a bishop bag. i cram the whole thing in the pack. Just sayin.

    I find stuffing all my nylon and netting to be the best course of action.
