This is an indispensable item for backpacking during bug season. I use it for cooking breakfast and dinner when the mosquitoes and flies won't leave you alone. Since it is floorless, spills and crumbs aren't an issue. Meals are so much more enjoyable when the bugs can't make a meal of you. It is also a great refuge to rest under.
The Bugamid is very easy to set up. Just toss the center line over a tree branch and stake out the four corners. You will need an eight foot pole to set it up above tree line. Its packed size is 5" x 12".
This comes along on every trip into the backcountry with my family.
