Tarptent question on 04/18/2008 13:19:42 MDT Print View

Do the floorless versions come with the noseeum netting still? I was thinking about getting a floorless and using some Tyvek as a groundcloth, but need a skeeter net too.

Thanks in advance...

better you call first to check stock... they have them listed but that does not mean you will recieve one without a major wait. Ive been through it.

Thanks Franco and Michael..

I'm new to lightweight backpacking, but am certain I can jump to a floorless model to save a bit more weight. I would be willing to use individual noseeum nets or lightweight bivies, but I bet my wife would feel better with a bit more protection.

If you have any other suggestions that would be great.
