Made the zippered bugnet for a friend who was leaving for a trip to the NorthWoods and wanted to keep mosquitos away. The finished product turned out nicely. My only complaint is the weight of the zipper pulls the bugnet off center. Adding a mitten hook to snap into the structural ridgeline solves that problem.
Bought this kit for my sons diy wide 11 foot hammock
Took me 2 hrs but was instantly gratified with an enclosed yet roomy bugnet
And it’s removable and my underquilts fit with room to spare
Great project going to order another soon
Look up “ Jellyfish “ on YouTube
She has a great tutorial she did on this bugnet, and she helped me get this done with words of encouragement
Thanks Dave! Jellyfish is certainly awesome. We love her videos, too. Let us know if you need anything.
The kit came with no grosgrain or instructions. The instructions on the web site are not great, and are not great, and are not even consistent with the picture on the instructions themselves. (picture shows loops on top for a line to hold the net up, which are needed imho) Anyway, between the video, written instructions, and picture it was enough to put it together (already had grosgrain anyway). I'm giving it 4 stars because the end product is good, even though getting there could be made a lot easier with good instructions and a complete kit. Oh, and the kit should definitely include material and instructions, and maybe clips, to add loops on the top as shown in the diagram in the instructions.
Really good kit but could do with a little more, wider, grosgrain to make it a bit easier.
Excellent kit for the DIYer to build a high quality, customizable side-entry zippered bugnet. All materials were excellent, instructions were easy to follow, and my bugnet turned out better than I expected.
