Mosquito Netting for Hammocks

A lightweight and portable travel hammock is a great shelter alternative to a tent. Hammocks are quick and easy to set up, they’re lightweight, and they’re super comfortable. One of the areas where hammocks come up short, however, is protection. Unlike tents, most hammocks don’t offer protection from rain or insects. Adding mosquito netting for hammocks is a great way to keep bugs and insects away!

Hammocks offer nothing in the way of bug protection

If you’ve ever slept in a hammock in the middle of July, you know that you’re essentially a dangling buffet for mosquitoes. There’s nothing to keep mosquitoes away, and they can bite you straight through the hammock fabric, too. Any spiders, June bugs, walking sticks, or other creepy crawlies that want to pay you a visit in the middle of the night are able to do so as well.

Fortunately, there’s a really simple fix.

How do you keep mosquitoes away from your hammock?

You can buy mosquito netting for hammocks to add a bug-proof barrier around your hammock while you sleep. Several hammock manufacturers – including ENO and Grand Trunk – make mosquito nets. These nets are easy and convenient to set up, and they are designed specifically for your travel hammock.

Another option is to buy mosquito netting from our military surplus section. Mosquito netting is pretty standard, and it all does the same thing; it keeps mosquitoes, bugs, and insects out.

Buying military surplus is generally a good way to save a few bucks on outdoor gear. While most surplus items aren’t as lightweight or technical as the gear made by outdoor brands, they are typically significantly cheaper, rugged, and they get the job done just fine. If you’re into car camping, you should definitely check out military surplus.
