    Do you use anything for bugs? I want to go the hammock route, but I camp in bug heavy areas at times. The ones with built in nets tend to be out of my price range. The Eno looks like it fits the bill perfectly.

      You can do a couple of different things here.

      1. I hate to plug another site but the folks over at /r/myog are incredible with DIY gear. I once saw a bugnet made with walmart sheer curtains. MYOG stands for Make Your Own Gear.

      2. I picked up this guy from Amazon but there are tons of other brands out there, I just don't have experience with them. I can definitely recommend the Eno Bug Net though.

      Outside of that, another tip for bugs is this stuff. This is a clothing treatment and will kill bugs on contact. Great for protecting against ticks/mosquitos. Combine it with a high deet bug repellant and you won't have a bug problem... EVER.

        That net is exactly what I wanted, and it's great that it goes with the hammock. Thanks for the info I will be buying one of these before my end of summer trip.
