Black Diamond Mega Bug

rated 5.0 of 5 stars
photo: Black Diamond Mega Bug bug shelter

I've been a Megamid fan for years, however it always lacked insect protection. This summer three of us used the Megamid and Mega Bug in the Uinta Mountains of Utah for a week. The Mega Bug was the hit of the trip. It sets up and takes down very easy and provides plenty of room. We often refer to the Megamid/Mega Bug as the "condo" or the "party tent". Why take anything else?
