Nothing is quite as annoying as trying to sleep while little biting bugs buzz around your face. If you’re sleeping under the stars or in a canvas wall tent, you might want to consider getting a mosquito net.
SansBug ($50, sansbug.com) makes a pop-up bug barrier that sets up in seconds. At 6 feet long and nearly 3 feet of headroom, it has plenty of space to spread out. It zips up so you’re fully enclosed, and the fine mesh netting keeps the bugs out.
It folds away into a 26-inch disc, weighing 2 ½ pounds. Visit the company website to watch how to properly fold it up or to find larger models.
