Bug Free Hammock Shield

The packable and practical accessory to help you enjoy your hammock without the mosquitoes and bugs.

Not much bigger or heavier than a can of bug spray, you'll be able to stay bug free the natural way and enjoy your hammock without the hassle.

You asked for it, we listened! The Bug Free Hammock Shield now has a double-sided horizontal zipper for easy access in and out of the hammock when installed. It sets up exactly the same, still weighs 16oz and is even easier to get in and out of.

The Bug Free Hammock Shield by Trek Light Gear is the solution you've been waiting for to enjoy your hammock in every environment...without the bugs. It weighs only 16oz and packs into its own attached pouch just like our hammocks! At 525 holes per square inch this netting gives you the perfect balance of breathability, visibility and bug protection.

Don't be fooled by other so-called 'skeeter beeter' hammocks that feature a bug net attached to the top of the hammock only - mosquitoes are more than capable of biting you right through the bottom of the hammock! The Bug Free Hammock Shield completely encloses your Trek Light Hammock (or any other non-spreader bar hammock) and since it's a separate accessory you can easily enjoy the hammock without the netting when the bugs aren't an issue.

Setting Up Your Bug Free Hammock Shield

Setting up the Bug Free Hammock Shield is easy!

1.) The mosquito netting is a long tube. Begin by loosening the drawstrings on each end, feed the hammock through the tube and then attach the hammock to the tree like you normally would. When you're done, just use the drawstring to close the netting at each end and your hammock is completely protected on all sides.

2.) The Bug Free Hammock Shield also comes with a piece of cord that functions as a ridgeline - just use the easy clip system to attach it from tree to tree above the hammock.

3.) You'll notice that the top of the netting has clips attached to it, just clip the netting to the ridgeline to keep it elevated.

4.) That's it! Unzip the easy access zipper, climb in the hammock and zip it back up for an entirely bug free hammock experience!

"Hammock Heaven"

Review Text: I've now taken the Bug Shield on a backpacking trip and a river trip and both times it had me singing the praises of Trek Light Gear! It's easy to setup and does exactly what it should - keeps the bugs out without taking away from my relaxing experience in the hammock. And believe me on river trip the bugs were BAD. No-see-ums, mosquitoes, you name it and through it all I was one happy hammocker! Highly recommended!!
