Insects are quite the annoyance. And while I generally try to respect the lives of other living things, insects often find themselves getting the short end of the stick so to speak. In case that was unclear, that means I find myself orphaning spider youth pretty frequently. But the number one offender is the mosquito.
It may not look like much, but the mosquito is responsible for more annual deaths worldwide than any other insect and is thought by many to be among the world’s most dangerous animals. Mosquitoes transmit diseases to over 700 million people annually, resulting in over 2 million deaths. They may be tiny, but they are deadly. As such, keeping them away is usually a pretty good idea, especially if you are camping out in their territory.
Next time you to trek out into the great outdoors, make sure you bring along your Dutch field cot mosquito net. Originally used by Dutch troops to keep the bloodsuckers at bay, the Dutch field cot mosquito net is a compact structure that is supported by fiberglass tension rods and designed to keep you free from bites deep into the night. Wake up disease free with blood intact by picking up one of these military-grade protective mosquito nets today.
Surely, you can put a price on just about anything. But is $19.95 really too much to ask for protection from malaria, West Nile virus, yellow fever and dengue fever? We did not think so – pick up the Dutch field cot mosquito net today.
Dutch Field Cot Mosquito Net
Our Dutch field cot mosquito nets are completely original Dutch military surplus items. Upon receiving the assemblies, you will notice that these unissued mosquito nets are of the utmost quality, each in excellent cosmetic and working condition. It is the perfect accessory for the lone-wolf outdoorsman that prefers sleeping soundly on a cot or in a sleeping bag – not tossing, turning and swatting pests all night long.
The Dutch field cot mosquito net measures approximately 85 inches long and 28.5 inches wide – big enough to accommodate even the largest of campers. The entire assembly is constructed from a variety of materials, including a built-in groundsheet made from a thick, abrasion-resistant nylon material that gives the assembly a very light weight. Each corner of the groundsheet is flanked by metal grommets, which provide strong support for the included fiberglass tension rods. These tension rods are fed through loop sleeves located at the apex of the net as well as the metal grommets to provide the field-size canopy with a free-standing structure. They are also collapsible to provide for compact storage when not in use. The real draw here, however, is the full-length side panels constructed from "No-See-Um" mosquito netting. This mosquito netting features a polyester construction and is, perhaps, the best protection from mosquitoes and other insects outside of chemical repellants. This lightweight netting has a high degree of transparency and is manufactured with a cross-stitch pattern that prevents the material from stretching, which would make it more porous and less effective. As it stands, the netting is so tightly knit that even the smallest of insects will have trouble getting to your sweet, tasty blood. One side of the netting features a three-way zipper that provides a full opening that will accommodate field cots and sleeping bags. All of this can be packed neatly into the included carrying bag with nylon straps that allow it to be worn as a backpack.
Assembly of the Dutch field cot mosquito net is simple, as there is a patch sewn to the tent itself with step-by-step instructions that are clear and concise. This patch also includes the NATO Stock Number (NSN). An NSN is a 13-digit numerical code that identifies all standardized materials of supply that are recognized by NATO countries. The NSN for this mosquito net is 7210-99-881-6135.
Whether you are looking for a mosquito-free poolside nap or a night under the stars in the bug-infested forest, the Dutch field cot mosquito net will provide all the protection you need. Pick one up today for just $19.95.
