Exped Scout Hammock Mosquito Net

We haven't gotten around to doing an English language video of this piece of gear quite yet, but Andy has one in German. It's pretty straightforward to set it up in any language.

A few important points:

  • The belly of the net hangs low to ensure bugs won't bite through the bottom of the hammock
  • When bugs are very bad, slipping into the hammock through a tightly drawn opening is best 
  • Trekking poles or sticks can be used across the net in 3 places (black webbing/velcro) to spread it out
Bye, bye bugs!
