My wife is a field biologist, and she is semi-allergic to mosquito bites. Well, with this ENO Bug Net she slept soundly every night without having to worry about getting welt-sized bites from all of the unwelcome flying insects that circled her like sharks circling a shipwreck survivor. This net is like a forcefield. Kapow! Saved!
The only downer for her was that she wished it would've stayed taut more easily as it tended to sag after a few hours in the sack.
Used this for the second time this year 2 weekends ago and the bugs were bad at night. Our group had two tents a VW bus and three hammocks, two of which had guardian bug nets. About 2 am I heard a noise so I flashed my headlamp on and noticed a empty hammock. Needless to say if you plan on hammocking in the summer you will definitely want a bug net.
This is a luxury item if you plan on using this as an overnight shelter. It keeps bugs out and also provides some privacy becuase it is difficult to see through. It makes it a little more difficult to get in and out becuase the zipper is in the middle of the hammock. You can also through a few light items underneath the hammock becuase this net is closed at the bottom.
eno's products are great...the bug net is a must up here in MN. The ends sinch up to the hammocks suspension rope, the zipper in the middle takes a little getting used to especially at night. but if you put it in the middle you wont have to reach to the ground to grab it. Great wind block as well without a rain fly!
I have slept in the outdoors since I was knee high to a dragonfly, and I have found myself with bites more times than I can remember.
The ENO Guardian changed that for me. I no longer worry about being dinner to a horde of wild bitemes, mosquitos, and ants.
Well done, ENO.
Basically, if I wouldn't have had this bug net up in the Uintas a few weeks ago, I would have been devoured by mosquito's and other weird bugs that tend to bite.
Easy to use, extremely compact, and super light :)
This works great for sleeping without bugs flying everywhere and you can drop a jacket in the bottom when you go to bed at night. You also cant see in to this, only out from the inside.
This is a must have for your ENO hammock. Works great and easy to set up!
