1P Bug Shelter

$155.00

Don't let pesky bugs ruin your night. No-See-Um netting keeps out the smallest critters while the silpoly tub-floor blocks moisture from below.

  • Dual front and side entry
  • Tapered width and height for efficiency.
  • ~5" deep tub-floor.
  • 4 Interior stash pockets on front door.
  • Hang loop/clip at front apex.
  • Note: The magnetic door ties have been retired. Door ties are now elastic with toggles.

New fabric option - The floor is now available in a 20D Ripstop Polyester with a Sil/PU coating. The PU coating on the inner face significantly improves puncture resistance and reduces slipperiness over the lighter 20D silpoly option (Sil/Sil coating) and our previously available 40D fabric.

Available in two lengths - The longer option provides an additional 6" (15cm) of length at the foot end. Please note that the additional length does not affect head or elbow room. The longer Bug Shelter will work with either length of our Cirriform Tarp, but will pair a little better with the longer Cirriform.

Made in the USA from imported fabric.

Pitching Instructions

Pitching the Bug Shelter is quick and easy. Download our guide and look through the rigging information below to get started.


Rigging

Your Bug Shelter comes with the following rigging included. Use this rigging to connect the apexes of your Bug Shelter to your tarp (see instructions below). You'll also need four tent stakes to secure the bottom corners (available here). Or, see below for an alterative.

  • 3/32" Shockcord: 50" | 127cm
  • Mitten hooks: 2
  • Mini Barrel cord locks: 2

Alternatively, if you'd like to forgo the tent stakes, you can connect the floor's corners to your tarp's stakes. This works well with the 1P Cirriform tarp and other smaller tarps. Suitability diminishes with larger tarps. For this approach, you'll need to install the following items which are available separately. Instructions are at the bottom of this page.

If you want to pitch the Bug Shelter by itself (without a tarp), you'll want two additional stakes (6 total) and some guyline for the apexes. 84" for the front and 72" for the foot should be plenty. See guyline options here.


Installing the rigging at the Apexes

This rigging will be used to connect your Bug Shelter to your tarp. Using 20" at the head end and 30" at the foot is usually a good start, though it may depend on your particular setup. You can trim excess cord after you have everything dialed in.

  • Note: You will do the following twice; once for each end of the net-tent.
  • At one end of the 3/32" shock cord, tie on a mitten hook. We suggest a clinch knot.
  • Thread the cord through the webbing loop at the net-tent's apexes (front to back at the head end, and back to front at the foot end).
  • Tie a loop on the loose end of the cord. We suggest a simple overhand loop knot.

Installing tensionlocks at corners

If you'd like to install tensionlocks (10mm size) at the floor's corners, follow these steps. Note that some Bug Shelters may have elastic loops at the corners instead of the webbing shown.

  • Tie a mitten hook to the end of each cord. We like to use a clinch knot.
  • Using a girth hitch, install a tensioner on the tie-out loop at each of the tub's corners.
  • Thread the untied end of the shockcord through the tensioner as shown (first through the middle opening from bottom to top, then through the remaining hole from top to bottom).
  • Tie a loop in the untied end of the cord. We like like to use an overhand loop knot.
  • Repeat at each corner

Product Availability

  • In most cases, items that are available to add to your cart are in-stock and ready to ship. Please refer to the shipping tab or page for expected fulfillment times.
  • Some items may be marked as "Avalable to backorder," "Made to order," and/or show a lead time. In these cases refer to the information on the product page for expected fulfillment times.
  • For items that are sold out, please refer to the production calendar and the Q & A below for more information.

Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when we expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then we do not know when it may become available (We're often not scheduled far out in advance and don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: We don't typically reserve products, however there are some exceptions to this. For example, if someone orders an in-stock Cirriform and wants to also order an out-of-stock Bug Shelter for it, if the Bug Shelter is expected within a couple weeks, we'll usually make arrangements to reserve one of the Bug Shelters and hold the order so shipping may be combined.

On occasion, select products may be available to back-order or pre-order. When this happens, that status will be shown on the product page. If you're signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to back/pre-order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Items that specify "ongoing production" mean that we are continually working on these items and doing our best to maintain inventory. If the item or a particular size is sold out, you can expect it to likely become available soon.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.

Shipping Information


While most orders ship out within 1 - 3 business days, please allow up to one week for us to ship your order. This gives us some scheduling flexibility for getting out on the trail!*

*If you select seam sealing services with your purchase, please allow a few extra days for us to seal the item(s) and ship your order.
