Cool. Thanks so much for your input David. I've been debating Virga vs. SpinnShelter as a solo shelter solution. The bug canopy that Gossamer Gear offers as a companion for their SpinnShelter really only has enough space for your head... you certainly can't sit up under it (I don't think)... it's more of a solution for sleeping only... and that was my main concern.
But I guess it would be easy enough to rig up a bigger net... say twice the size as the one GG offers. However, then you are down to a savings of only 5 oz. over a floorless Virga 2 :) Then again, as you say, with the shelter and netting as seperate components... I could leave the net home in the Fall months! Very good point!
The other thing is... how much time do you spend in your shelter when you're not sleeping anyway?! If it's buggy around camp... I'm more apt to cover up, put on some deet and don my head net than to hide out in my shelter. So perhaps space under the net is not a big concern in reality. As long as I can sleep there in peace... that's the main thing.
