    Budget bugnet first impressions

    Although I love my Green Hornet and the Hennessy offers me a good nights sleep the most comfy lay I have is my 11ft TW Pocho/hammock/tarp. The only issue is the lack of bugnet. So while I wait until I can warrant the cost of the warbonnet blackbird I have been seeking an alternative.

    I came across these on ebay and on paper they seemed to tick the box but like many a chinese solution you never know what you'll end up with. So for 10.50 I thought it was worth a punt.

    The netting although not up to the standard of my branded hammock certainly looks like it will achieve multiple trips, the visibility it offers is really good. Again with the zips they look up to the job but are no frills.

    The cinch sleeve appears well made as do the ridgeline clips and I'm confident in its ability to do the task it's intended for. I have left a link on the vid below and will be updating this review after I have given it a good run out but for the price if I get 3 trips out of it I won't feel aggrieved.

    Nobby8126, is that an Amazon bug net?
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.
