Sun/Bug screen protection recommends.

Hi there- anyone have a recommend on this type items? Something sturdy, may 10 by 10 at least. REI has a screen room that a partial-fly can be used. Any ideas? Thanks

The one time I have used an enclosed bug screen room (dining canopy with bug netting enlosure, right?) It seemed to keep more bugs in than out. I preferred the open one personally.

Lived in AK with kids and know the importance of a good bug tent. REI 10x10 with tarp option worked well when there was no wind. It could handle a breeze, but perfect stakeout was necessary for light wind, and it was a hazard in moderate wind.

Of course, with a little breeze you don't need a big tent, but in variable conditions it was a bit of a PITA. Bugs out, set it up; light breeze, pull it down, breeze settles down... I still have ours, and will carry it for certain trips, but it's been set up only every other year or so now that we've been in the Rockies.

It's a good quality tent that seems better made and better suited to light wind than the Wetzel types. Then again, I haven't looked into bug tents in quite a few years so I don't really know what's out there.

We got a kelty last year around 10x10. Saved us on a buggy rainy trip with kids. Check out the big Agnes sugar loaf. We used one last month and it was great. Well designed and constructed, lighter and easier to set up than kelty. Big Agnes also has a screen kit for the deep creek tarp.
