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 ShieldSetting 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 tie it from tree to tree above the hammock.
3.) You'll notice that the top of the netting has some loops and string attached to it, this is for connecting the netting to the ridgeline which keeps the netting elevated and out of your face while you're in the hammock. Just tie or clip (our ultralight carabiners
make a great addition to the Bug Free Hammock Shield) 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!
