Klymit Traverse Bug Net and Double Hammock

September 2019
Author: Stanton Upson

The Traverse Bug Net features an industry-leading magnetic zipper. The easy-to-use zipper seamlessly closes behind you upon entry or exit to ensure insects stay out. Additionally, the bug net includes four tension locked tie-off points that create a larger interior space. It is designed to be compatible with any camping hammock.

With the Traverse Double Hammock, Klymit is introducing a new approach to hammocks with a diagonal stitch pattern that uses just two pieces of fabric instead of the traditional three-panel design. In addition to looking pretty cool, this creates a more comfortable, asymmetrical sleeping position as your body aligns with the seam. It also means less stretching and sagging over time.

"The new Traverse system is an ultralight backpacker's dream! With this setup, you are good to go as long as you have two trees to attach it to; no more worrying about finding a flat spot to pitch a tent. Early season is where this setup will separate itself, and the bug net allows you to have a roomy fix to those pesky critters that you do not want to interrupt you on an evening crash or even a midday siesta. A combined weight of just 36.6 oz. is worth it to set up shop virtually anywhere.

In addition to the bug net and hammock, the Traverse Shelter adds great protection from those light rainstorms and the afternoon sun. At just under 25 oz., it's nice to add to your early season pack to help you weather the passing storms. I really like this setup, even for day hunts. The versatility of the pieces has helped me in many ways, from being able to kick my feet up midday, get away from bugs, or even wait out a late summer afternoon monsoon. If you are looking to ditch the tent and have a system that allows you to have a virtually limitless camp setup, you need to look into the Traverse Double Hammock and Bug Net." - Stanton Upson, Hunt Advisor
