      That about sums up my position. I have no problems with no-see-ums unless it's in the middle of summer in some of our mountain scrub meadows...not sure why that is, but a little citrus bug spray and I have no more issues. Nights in the high country is cold enough that I really don't need bugnetting....but if I were ever stuck in the ground, that would be something else. I guarantee those pesky little bugs will weasel their way through my mosquito netting...but maybe I'll done with my claytor-clone with no-see-um netting. ;o)

      Funny all these complaints about Claytor using mosquito netting instead
      of no-see-um. I've a Hennessey and it uses no-see-um and I keep wishing
      it was mosquito netting instead. Why? Mosquito netting should be
      lighter. It will also be cooler--allowing more breeze to pass through.
      Finally, where I hike and camp, we have some biting midges with
      impressively long proboscises providing impressively lingering welts,
      but they never seem to crawl through mosquito mesh even though I know
      they are small enough to do so. So, a lot of all this depends on where
      you are and who your enemies are.
