Designed for use by the U.S. military and made to fit on a military cot, the IBNS is the most lightweight, compact, durable, effective, and easily deployable mosquito net tent in the world.
Lightweight: The IBNS weighs a mere 30 oz (1.90 lbs/0.85 kg).
Compact: While the IBNS measures 90" in length and has a height of 25" at the head of the tent, to 20" at the foot of the tent when fully deployed, the IBNS coils into a stored size of only 13" x 13" x 3".
Secure: The IBNS can be securely fitted onto a military cot using push-and-lock straps on all four corners.
Durable: The floor of the IBNS is made from 1200mm waterproof 70 Denier 1.9 oz. ripstop nylon, and the frame is supported by a strong, ultra-light .134-inch diameter pultruded fiberglass rod that winds around the shelter.
Effective: The IBNS features 0.7mm Permethrin bonded mosquito netting that repels mosquitoes and no-see-ums, and is EPA-registered.
Easily deployable: The IBNS sets up in less than 3 seconds and be stored within 30 seconds. The shelter automatically snaps into shape once the cinch strap is removed and no assembly or set-up is required.
Upgradeable: The IBNS can be upgraded with the EBNS fly, which protects the IBNS user from the elements.
Fire retardent: The IBNS is CPAI-84 fire retardent rated.
What can this mosquito net tent be used for? The IBNS is very popular amongst U.S. Marines because it protects them from mosquitoes, sandflies, and midges without impeding airflow (which is very important in the hot climates in which the Marines are deployed), while still being lightweight and compact. It is also popular amongst humanitarian aid workers, hunters, soldiers, photographers, world trekkers, and all those who work in the mosquito-infested regions of the world.

My only complaint is that it took me longer to figure out how to fold the tent than I expected. The directions on the bag were complete, but slightly difficult to understand. Otherwise, this tent is great!
BEST TENT EVER

Took this tent with me on my Thailand trip. I carried 3 of them in my backpack and they did not add that much weight. Perfect for lying on the beach or settling in at the top of a mountain. Very cozy yet roomy at the same time. Definitely would recommend.

Worth the wait

I had to wait two months on backorder for my order because the manufacturer ran out of stock and no store in the US had any left in stock, but I just received my order yesterday and I can say that these tents were definitely worth the wait. The owner kept me updated on the status of the order regularly and was super helpful with fixing a small shipping issue. It seems like a pretty small business, but they seem to really care about their customers and I love supporting small businesses.

I have not used it outdoors yet, but I popped it open in the backyard today and it looks like it going to be very good for my trip. Cheers.

I just got back from a 3-month long missions trip in Botswana, and I just want to say that your tent made my trip so much better. Our camp was swarming with mosquitoes and I didn't get a single bite while sleeping. I think I probably should have purchased the rainfly too, but I didn't have enough money, so I made a tarp shelter to make do during the downpours. Anyways, just wanted to let you know how happy your tent made me and thank you for your advice!

Outstanding. I went spring turkey hunting a few weeks ago, and if there is anything that any Tennessee hunter will tell you, it's that even by May there are so many damn mosquitos and black flies everywhere. Even hours before dusk, you can walk through the lowlands at get your daily fill of protein just by walking around with your mouth open. I got this tent when my buddy recommended it, and it sure makes the nights more comfortable. Regular tents are just to bulky and cumbersome, and too warm. In some parts, it can get to 80 degrees andwith the damn humidity making it feel like 100, I like as much air as possible. It poured all night, but I don't mind getting a little wet so long as I don't get sucked by those damn black flies.
