Are you a bug looking to keep pesky humans out of your space so you can enjoy the outdoors in peace?
We've got the perfect solution for you.
All it takes one little mosquito to ruin a perfect hammock day. When the bugs come out, tell them to buzz off and get their own hammock with our Bug Free Hammock Shield. It's the packable and practical accessory to help you kick back and enjoy your hammock without the mosquitoes, bugs and 'no-see-ums'.
A full 360° of bug protection means you can relax in peace while the bugs move on to harass your less-prepared friends. Sorry friends, maybe next time you'll Trek Lightly.
Note: The hammock is sold separately.
Don't be fooled by other so-called 'skeeter beeter' hammocks that feature a bug net which is attached to the top of the hammock only - mosquitoes are often more than capable of biting you right through the bottom of the hammock!
The Bug Free Hammock Shield completely surrounds your Trek Light Hammock (and almost all other non-spreader bar hammock brands). And since it's a separate accessory you can easily enjoy the hammock without the netting - set it up when you need it, leave it packed up when you don't.
For every item sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.
Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.
COVID-19 Update: Our warehouse is adopting safe social distance practices and taking all necessary measures to ship orders with the highest safety standards. These measures may result in longer fulfillment times than normal so we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.Our standard policy is still detailed below for your reference.
We know what it's like to order something online and want to have it in your hands as quickly as possible. We ask that you allow us 1 business day to process your order and get it ready to ship, however we do everything we can to get orders out the door as soon as they come in - which means most packages ship the very same day you order.
Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our mail pickup will be shipped the next business day whenever possible.
We offer the ability to pre-order and back order some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.
Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory. Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!
We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing separate orders so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.
If you choose an option like "Express (2 Business Days)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly two days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).
Please see our separate Carrier Info page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.
When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.
PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!
If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!
As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?

This is the perfect addition to a hammock set up! It’s super easy to set up just slide the hammock through tighten the ends and the clip onto a line and voila! The bugs can’t get you. The only thing I ran into was that the line it came with to clip to could have been longer. It was only just long enough to secure to some knots on the first trees I used and not long enough at all the second location (fortunately I always have some paracord in my pack so it was no problem to clip onto that. These trees were pretty far apart, probably about as far as you could go comfortably so in theory it’s long enough for general use, but I would definitely bring along some paracord or something else longer just in case your trees are wide)
No mosquitoes got through it was a great time I'm nothing good things to say
It was easy to set up this bug shield and it works super well!
I *knew* I would love this and I am so glad that I purchased it. I love that it's 360 protection from bugs. Not even those bold mosquitoes that try to bite through the hammock fabric are going to get ya with this bad boy!
The net was easy to set up and worked great to keep bugs out. Easy to get in and out of! But I had to Macgyver the ridgeline cord because it didn’t even come close to wrapping around 1 tree and reaching the other side. Fortunately my tree happened to have a nail that I could secure 1 side to.
