A half length slipover and cinch bugnet for hammocks that encloses the torso, head and arms and weighs under 4 oz.
The key to this bug net solution centers on anthropometry and understanding the acceptable range of motion of a supine hammock user. To save weight while accommodating a hammocker’s movements the bug net encloses just the user’s head, torso and arms. This provides enough headspace for, say, the reading of a book or drinking hot drink, without the need for large and heavy zippers or separate ridge lines. Care was taken to ensure the openings accommodate the passage of the hammock suspension as well as a person, while maintaining their ability to sufficiently seal around the user and their hammock.
