Bug netting in bivy bags on 03/13/2008 06:59:13 MDT Print View

Looking at the Backpacking Light Bivy Sack Gear Guide (http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/xdpy/ssn/GearDB/pc/Shelters/Bivy%20Sacks/index.html), some bivy bags (e.g., ID BMW) appear to have removable insect netting. Question. How is insect netting attached to the bag? I assume it is a zip-in design, but I would like to confirm.

Thanks.

Chris

Insect netting in Oware bivy on 03/13/2008 07:39:48 MDT Print View

I have an Oware bivy with removable netting that is of the zip-in type. I purchased this early last year directly from Oware, and was under the impression that it is more or less equivalent to the Vapr bivy sold at BPL.
