 Gap above head allows mosquitos or other bugs to come in

The product idea and form factor are wonderful, but execution is terrible. We purchased this for our daughter to take on summer camp where they sleep out in the open. They are not allowed to use tents and after the last couple of years coming back with her face almost distorted beyond recognition due to bites, we thought we had to do something. This product appeared to be wonderful. It is not a tent, not bulky, and covered just the head. It also packs to a small disc that is not too difficult to pack. To our surprise, when we received the item and setup it up in our living room, we found the portion of net above the head is too short. It does not even touch the floor and leaves a big gap for mosquitos or any flying or crawling bug to come in. If we tilt the thing to make the top of the thing touch the floor, then the portion around the shoulder is off the floor. There is just no way to fix it. What should have been done was to give the top portion more material, to make it longer, so it can be wrapped under the sleeping bag, like the rest of the body. Check out out pictures to see what I mean. As such, I can only give it one star. It failed to do its intended function.

 I am very disappointed with this net

I am very disappointed with this net! It only protects your face, the dome part, as the remainder lays directly on your legs. I used this in Costa Rica where it is way too hot to use a blanket, and the bugs can just bite me right through the net! Also, the back part of the dome doesn’t have enough fabric, and as you turn in the night it lifts up, allowing bugs to come through the back. I woke up with my entire back COVERED in bites that only could have happened while I was sleeping.I had to sleep on a top bunk, and the dome kept sliding off the bed, and it was just a hot mess. All the other people in my group laughed at me for thinking this design would work, and I don’t blame them. I definitely will buy a hanging net for my next trip!

 Very good idea, not enough netting

For my particular needs, I am using and appreciating the Net. First of all, it fit into my hand baggage and was light enough for the kg allowance. Secondly, I am using it on a bed with a mattress so that I can tuck the two side ridges around the edges and my pillow blocks any opening above my head. As to folding it up, once you get the hang of it, it twists back into its bag no problem. However, for some unknown reason which I am sure the manufacturer could put right, there is scarce material around the head pop up part which is a real shame. All it would need would be to attach some more netting to the side flaps so that you could either tuck in better or let hang, allowing for the more restless sleepers to turn in the night without risking exposure. When I get home I shall try attaching some old netting and I am sure I will be able to remedy the defect.

 Works well but hard to close gaps on sides

Useful product, did not see similar ones on the market. The only drawback are the small spaces at the bottom of the wiring that are difficult to keep closed throughout the night. (Note that the netting does not envelope the sleeping nag, but only covers the top)

 One of the few things that needs no modification

I read the reviews about the gap, but I personally like to lay my head on a pillow - so the gap is a non-issue. I bought this for sleeping in hotels in tropical climates. It lays over you perfectly and provides great protection. I totally love it. I can see if you were laying on the ground with no tent or pillow, this would allow something to crawl on you. If that isn't your plan, this will work great.

 Great net!!! must have for hot summers

so actually ... this thing came in really handy... i would recommend getting some tent stakes, there are hoops for staking it into the ground ... they don't come with the net... get some!

I just got back from a week in Belize, and this product worked very effectively and simply. I would buy it again.

 More trouble than it's worth

Bought this for a three week safari in Africa. As we were moving every other night, a pop-up style seemed more practical than a hanging net (not knowing what there would be to hang it from).This was a bit disappointing. On all but one bed, it was impossible to tuck the netting in all the way around. There just isn't enough fabric. There is also a weird strap that runs across your chest while you're inside the tent; maybe this was supposed to be underneath us? Either way, it constricted your movement (especially when trying not to dislodge the netting around you).This may be very useful for camping/sleeping bag use, but it was kind of a failure for us in our tented camps with beds. Luckily, it's dry season and bugs were minimal.

 Great investment

I love this when I'm in the field in wooded environments. I can put it over my head and sleep with my head out of my bag with out the risk of getting bit by bugs. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the sides don't seal 100% l have to place my boots and clothes on the gaps.

 Pop up mosquito net

I bought this for my son's camping trip. Before he left, we watch the video and tried to close it back together.... Impossible!!! We were 4 people watching and pausing the video, and everybody tried, but we couldn't figure it out. I managed to make it a bit smaller, and it went in a big pocket in the back of his chair. I think it worked fine for him. After I bought it, the price went up $10, and I don't think that was right. I paid the cheaper price, but I don't like price gouging.
