ENO Guardian Bug Net
ENO Guardian Bug Net gives you a bite-free peace of mind. Lets face it. If you stay outdoors long enough, you'll notice skeeters suck. ENO has created the Guardian Bug Net to allow you to kick back in your hammock and prevent mosquitoes from chowing down. The Guardian surrounds you and your hammock in bite-free peace of mind without cramping your style.

It does a good job of keeping the bugs out, but nothing is perfect. If you have had your ENO for awhile, you have to rethink your steps for hanging it. Including the net takes some planning and visualization. There are plenty of YouTubes on the subject, but you will have to sift through a few different models before you get to yours.
I was disappointed by how much breeze was blocked by the mesh - - a lot. I live in a humid area, so that diminishes the comfort a pretty good bit.
received the ENO bug net just prior to moving to Illinois, where the mosquitoes are as big as flies. I've used it for about two weeks now and have to say it's a very well made piece of gear. I tried it with and without a sleeping pad, it did stretch a tiny bit with the pad, but still worked. Pro is the mesh is tiny and not one bug got in. Con is its about six inches too short. I have constantly had to stretch the net in order to get it to close down on the straps and not the fabric of the hammock. Overall a good addition to hammock camping.
