I've currently got a Big Agnes Seedhouse S/L 1 tent and am looking for a more compact,lighter option.I travel to many third world countries and need to have a mosquito net.I'm currently using the inner of my tent,treated with permatrin.Does anybody know of a more COMPACT,Lighter solution than the Big Agnes.Thanks.

From minimal on up including headnet, DLG sleepnet, A16 bug net, bug bivies from OR or Oware, bug tents from various places, etc.

How much coverage do you need? Head only, torso, whole body bivy, whole body with room to sit up.
