Kept the very many mosquitos off my face and body (I used this in conjunction with REI Minimalist bivy). Very well built, and very useful in flying bug places.
Design: pop up bugnet that folds flat
Ease of Setup: easy
Price Paid: approx $33
Great for keeping the bugs off in Maine! It stores flat in a stuff sack and weighs under a pound. Very easy to fold up like those pop-up tents that kids play with. Pole is a flexible oval that is sewed into the netting.
