|Zpacks™ HexaNet Bug Shelter
This item is discontinued. Consider the
Solplex or the Hexamid Solo tents as an alternative.
This bug shelter can be paired with our Hexamid Solo-Plus tarp.
It is sized to comfortably fit one person.
It has a 1.0 oz/sqyd Cuben Fiber bathtub floor and ultralight .7 oz/sqyd mosquito netting.
The Hexanet has the advantage that it can be used independently to
sleep under the stars when it is nice out, however it has alot less
living space compared to a screened in
Hexamid Solo-Plus tent. You won't be able to squeeze in a second
person, whereas you can with the tent and a twin groundsheet.
Sets up with just one 52" trekking pole, a
tent pole, or it can be hung from a
tree branch. The handle of the pole
inserts into a cup at the peak of the shelter.
The Hexanet is pitched with just 4 stakes at the corners, and 1
for the main guy line.
When it is set up in conjunction with a Solo-Plus Hexamid tarp it
requires just 4 additional stakes for the corners (14 total).
There are now also loops at all six upper corners of the bathtub to
clip it out to the tarp if desired (shown in the video but not in

You can set the HexaNet up first, then pitch the tarp over top
of it later if rain starts during the night. Or if it is already
raining you can pitch the tarp first, then put up the HexaNet
second to keep it dry.
