The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated4out of5byCarolina CamperfromA must-have for hammock campingI'm getting ready to try out hammock camping rather than traditional tent camping. I will say that this is a MUST-HAVE if you plan on trying this. It provides great protection from pesky mosquitoes while still allowing you to enjoy that evening breeze. There are pull cords on either end so you can tighten up the hole where your straps pass through on each end which is nice. This gives you 100% protection from bugs.
Now the downsides: The paracord it comes with is not very long, so it may be better to go out and buy similar paracord that has more length to it. If you have Atlas straps, it works out well because you can tie the paracord to the top loop on each strap and it gives you plenty of head clearance, depending on how far down the Atlases your Eno is attached. Not necessarily a problem, just my opinion.
Second thing I noticed, as someone else pointed out already, it has a LOT of material that hangs down below the hammock. To me this is space that could be utilized. I was strapped to two trees a good ways up from the ground and the carry bag was still touching the ground. Again not a bad thing, just something that could be changed. Being an engineering student I've learned to look at the little details.
Overall I'm happy with this investment and think it's more than worth it, especially with summer coming up.

Rated4out of5byA-FramefromOkefenokee TestedA great option, take it for warmer buggy trips and leave it home during cooler days.
Just returned from the Okefenokee Swamp, the net worked like a charm, the deck system is the swamp is ideal for Eno products.

Rated4out of5byChacosAndHammocksfromQuality Item, but limited in SizeThe Good-
Does it's job, and does it well. It is easy to set up, though you'll want to buy your own longer guy-line. It keeps the bugs out, lets the breezes through, and in all the dozen plus multi-day trips I've used it on I haven't seen any noticeable wear.
This is a personal problem, but being 6'2" it really doens't fit me that well. We all know that to get the most comfort out of a parachute hammock you hang in it brazilian style diagonally. Well this net hugs the hammock so tightly that you don't really have the room to do so, and even then the sides often press against me and the bugs can bite you through if they're tenacious enough.
It's a good item, but if you're on the taller end prepare to be more snug in it than you should.

Rated5out of5byBen FortfromPerfect for oneThe ENO Guardian Bugnet fits perfectly with ENO products and functions very well. I heeded the words of another reviewer and ran the ridgeline rope through the top clips, not "under" them, and also left the outside two clips free to hang. Hard to describe, but it works better this way. The Guardian is ideal for one, but pretty snug with two people in my doublenest. Another thing to think about is it actually provides a good bit of warmth to the hammock. I'm from Georgia, so summer days can get pretty warm and full of mosquitos. Overall a very well made product, if you're careful with your gear it will last a long time.

Rated4out of5byZac Hilbertfrombetter than snoozing with the mosquitosI've used a few times while camping in southeast and northeast Wisconsin. Anyone familiar with summer in this part of the country knows that bugs will eat you alive. This net will prevent all those bugs from snuggling up with you as you're trying to sleep. I'd be very hesitant to try a summer night's sleep with out this.
The set up is not bad; it only adds about two minutes or so to my hammock, bug net, fly set up.
It would be nice if it were a few ounces lighter, and it's probably a touch bigger than it needs to be--around a hammock hung at a comfortable height, the bottom of the net will drag on the ground.
One other drawback is that it does make getting into your hammock slightly more awkward, but this isn't a big problem once you get the hang of it.
The supplied cord for the ridge line is fine, but it's not a bad idea to have some longer utility cord handy.

Rated3out of5byScoutmasterSCfromI like it, but it needs modsI wish this was easier integrated to my doublenest rather than completely separate. First time using it, I fell out of the hammock and "popped" a few of the plastic clips used to hang off the ridgeline. So I used wire cutters to clip off the plastic clips and run the ridgeline through the nylon loops the clips were connected to. I have also removed the stuff sack. I now leave the doublenest inside the bug net and keep both together in a larger stuff sack.
