Size: Double
This net is perfect, It comes with two screws if you need them but the hanging mechanism could be used any where. The whole net tapers up to two points held together by a collapsable pole. It packs away neatly and is perfect for travelling.

The packaging says it is impregnated with Life systems EX8 Anti Mosquito formula that will last 2 years or 35 washes.

Dimensions are 210cm(L) x 160cm (W)x 160cm (H)
Weight: 375g including bag.

So i wrote the above when i received it int he post. I have now returned from Ghana having used it and i can say: It is good if you are around 5 ft but my 6 ft 4 boyfriend was constantly getting his feet tangled in it. The design which is not clear when you first look at it is that it attaches to the roof above your head and then tapers down to your feet so it is a cosy fit with risk of touching the net and being bitten through it. We found that a net with four hooks (like a four poster bed) was a much better design.

The key to the performance for this net, or any net in my opinion, is the support bar (collapsible in this instance) that combines with the design to maintain shape and allows for a decent internal space when properly tucked in at the 4 corners. Having lived previously in the tropics with a very basic net, I can certainly vouch for the huge advantages of this more advanced design.

The hanging system itself is reasonably flexible, allowing you to mount the net from a point of various heights. This means you could mount it to a ceiling or a point hanging just above the net itself. Personally I wouldn't bother with separate 'hanging kits' - I usually carry some string and a couple of nails and then create my own solution - as this provides enough flexibility to make do in a variety of situations.

When mounted at an appropriate height, you really only need to adequately tuck in the corners properly to get a good taught canopy. "Taught" really is important here, for two reasons. Firstly it means more space underneath to move around and prevent bites through the net from loose parts that might rest on your person. Secondly, it means that a breeze can pass through much more effectively, likely to be quite important in many of the environments that you'll use this in.

The material itself seems great quality, and can take a fair amount of abuse before it'll tear. I've been using this one in my flat for 5 months now, and it's still in perfect condition. I'm not entirely convinced on the necessity of impregnation with chemicals though. I seem to remember recent research indicating that this only puts off most mosquitoes in the first instance, after which their sensitivity to chemicals such as DEET is numbed for a period and they can happily return to the same source.

A good quality net, but we found that the slim end of the wedge was too shallow to allow adequate protection for the feet: it does not allow enough room for your feet to be free, or without contact with the net, so the mozzies can bite through!
Single hanging point also does not allow flexibility of hanging, we had to improvise with a light fitting in order to hang this!

Product arrived very quickly, and is exactly as described.

After setting it up, I found that it touched my feet when put on a single bed, it might have been a better idea to get a "box-shaped" one instead, but never mind.

Very easy to hang up, and simple to adjust. Pretty compact, too. :)

Super small and portable, so easy to put up with just one point of attachment.

We use these in India on our stays there, they do the job and as long as you remember to tuck them in properly when you've climbed into bed there really is no way pesky mosquitos can get in. I also think that they will come in handy for camping in the future - good product!

The net is already treated but its easy to wash and re-treat as required. I've bought two of these in the past then gave one away to a friend in India for her daughter as she couldn't believe how little fuss there is putting it up, so I had no hesitation in buying one again.

The net proved too small to cover a double bed properly in nearly all hotels in Madagascar so we didn't feel well protected. The edging was flimsy and had holes in it where it had come away from the net...and this was before it had even been used. Disappointed as Lifesystems items are usually excellent.
