Backpack Bug Net

Made by customer Cindy Leffleman.  She emailed the following description:


This net made of No-See-Um mesh is the lightest option I have found to keep bugs away while sleeping under a tarp. It is designed to be used with a sleeping bag; thus it only covers from the waist to head. The corners are reinforced with Sil-Nylon, so that I use hiking poles, or sticks on the ground to hold it in a square shape, away from my skin. This has been used in many miles of AT backpacking, and this photo here is in Yellowstone.
