The Eagles Nest Outfitters Guardian Insect Shield Bug Net is a convenient way to be in the outdoors free of those winged insects. This is treated with insect shield bug repellant, so not only do you have that mesh that is going to protect you, this is effectively going to ward off those mosquitoes, black flies, other insects that you don’t want to be in your space.
It is constructed of very fine no-see-um mesh netting. This is very lightweight, so it packs down to be small. You can definitely take this into the backcountry. You can throw it in your backpack and it is lightweight. It is very convenient the way it sets up. And it gives you a lot of space. It is very spacious. You don’t feel claustrophobic inside of it. The dimensions here. It is nine feet five inches long and that is certainly long enough to accommodate any Eagles Nest Outfitters hammocks or any hammock in general.
And it is about four feet five inches from top to bottom. So you have got a lot of space in there. Once you get inside the hammock you have got enough fabric in there to move around. And once you actually get in the hammock and weight it down, this material comes out. So it is not going to be in contact with your skin. If something were to land on it, it wouldn’t be able to bite you or sting you through this mesh. So, you know, it definitely is very convenient and, again, with that insect shield treatment, it is a pyrethrum treatment and this is an odorless treatment. It is very durable, so it is not going to wash off. It is not going to get on you. It is a permanent treatment that is applied to the fabric.
So it is really great technology. It is going to really effectively ward off all of those insects.
In order to set this up, it is really simple. You have got a central zipper right in the middle here. It is a double zipper so you can zip it from the top and from the bottom. And actually on the inside you have zipper as well. So once you get in the hammock you can unzip it from the inside.
Set up is really easy. So when you are ready to put the bug net around your hammock, you can zip the zipper in the middle. There is a draw cord on either end. So you are able to kind of undo that draw cord, put the hammock through that hole and ten cinch it closed.
It comes with a ridge line. So you set up your ridge line far enough above your hammock that it is going to give you lots of space, but not too high above it that, you know, you are going to be weighting the bottom of this. Again, you have got lots of material so that shouldn’t be an issue, but there are plastic clips all along here that you just clip it to the ridge line. So it hands above you. It is really convenient. It has got lots of headroom.
And when you are ready to pack it up, it does come with an included stuff sack. So the stuff sack is stitched onto the bug net. You don’t have to worry about losing it. And you actually do have a little compression strap on the side. So when you are ready to pack it up and put it in your backpack, you stuff it down into this really convenient sack, throw it in your backpack and you are ready to go.
So the Guardian Insect Shield Bug Net by Eagles Net Outfitters wards off those pesky insects that you don’t want in your space. And that allows you to just be able to relax in the backcountry.
