Mesh Shelter options

Hello and Merry Christmas to everyone.

I have an MSR Zing wing (like Moss Outfitter wing) and am looking for a mesh shelter to go underneath the wing. Much like the Outfitter.net went with the Outfitter wing.

What would be a suitable substitute for the Outfitter.Net?

I looked at a GoLite Shangri-La 6 nest but it is now discontnued and unavailable. A Shangri-La 2 nest is a little too small for my needs - I would like to be able to stand up in it and move around without ducking too much to avoid my head striking the netting roof.

Ideally I'd like a removable floor.

All suggestions greatly appreciated.

best regards

Cameron

Instead of trying to find a mesh shelter made for another tent/shelter why don't you go to your local fabric store and buy some noseeum netting. It would be very easy to cut it to size you could attach it in tons of ways. Just use a ground cloth instead of having one built it. Or you could sew one on if you so desired. Tyvek makes a good ground cloth.

Want something a little sturdier?  Alps Mountaineering Zephry tents are all mesh. No removable floor though.

If you get a driving rain you can always drop the wing around it like a fly.
