Bug Free Hammock Shield

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.

Hammock Camping Hammock Bug Net - Trek Light Gear



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.



Setting Up Your Hammock Bug Net - Hammock Camping

Easy Setup Instructions

  1. Loosen the drawstrings on each end, feed the hammock through the netting and attach the hammock to the tree like you normally would. Use the drawstring to close the netting at each end.
  2. Hang the ridgeline: The cord has a fixed end and an adjustable end.  Wrap the fixed end around the tree and clip it back onto itself. Do the same with the other end and use the toggle to tighten until taut.
  3. Attach the clips on the top of your net to the ridgeline to keep it elevated.
  4. That's it. Unzip, climb in, and zip it back up for an entirely bug free hammock experience.

COVID-19 Status

Our warehouse is continuing to take all necessary measures to ship orders and keep our team safe. Life may feel like it's returning to normal in your local area (we hope!), but the impact of COVID is still extremely present in the world of shipping and fulfillment.

Most orders for in-stock items are leaving our warehouse within 1-3 business days, but please be understanding if it takes additional time to get your order shipped.

If you choose an express shipping rate (FedEx Overnight or FedEx 2-Day) we're still getting most expedited orders out the door within one business day from when you order.

Please note that even though FedEx Ground or Priority Mail may cost more than Standard/Free Shipping, they're not considered an expedited shipping method. Any delivery times quoted are estimates only and it may not ship for 1-3 business days after you order as noted above.

Bottom line: We're doing everything we can to get your order to you quickly and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time!

Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our daily mail pickup will be shipped in the order received.


If you choose a shipping option that has a quoted time like "FedEx Ground (2 Business Days)" or even "FedEx Overnight (1 Day)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly 1 or 2 days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).

When it comes to the carriers, the quoted times should also always be thought of as estimates, not guarantees. Expedited methods like FedEx 2-Day or Overnight are pretty reliable in their delivery times (hence the cost), but services like Ground/Priority can certainly be optimistic with their estimates.


We offer the ability to pre-order and backorder 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 a separate order so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.


Please see our Can I Request A Specific Shipping Carrier? 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?

In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.

Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some policies and rules so we can survive as a small business.

What matters is that we're here for you.

We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.

Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.


If for any reason you're not happy with anything you ordered from us, just send it back to us within 30 days by following the instructions below.

Easy and perfect

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)

Regina McCreery (Scott Depot, WV)
Not today bugs!

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!

Glad to hear the net is working so well. Hammock on!
