Use the Front Range Bug/Floor Insert alone for protection from bugs, or pair it with the separate Front Range Tarp Shelter for a complete shelter system. Like the tarp shelter, it can be set up easily with ski or trekking poles, or with a separate accessory pole.

The Front Range Bug/Floor Insert's body is made with highly breathable, 15D nylon micromesh and has a peak cone design at its apex to keep the fly off the mesh body. It has a single zippered door for entry. Its 30D ripstop nylon bathtub floor has MSR's Xtreme Shield waterproof coating for long-lasting weather protection.
