Black Diamond Mega Bugwrote a review of Black Diamond Mega Bug Shelter on July 29, 2005
I'd been using the Megamid shelter for several years with and without the floor depending in conditions and always wished for more bug protection. Finally the folks at Black Diamond provided the solution with the Megabug. I bought the Megabug right before a recent trip to Peru and all in the group (4 total) were excited to use the new backcountry screen tent. It performed wonderfully from high-altitude trekking to cloud forest jungle. I was impressed with the super-fast setup and high-quality details incorporated in the Megabug design. The connection of the floor to the netting walls is a comfort saver when four people and their gear are using the shelter. With the old floor and Megamid design, it seemed like body parts and gear were always leaking out into the elements and critters were always sneaking inI'm still missing a yellow tassel from my favorite climbing hat due to a salt-hungry rodent nibbling late night on my hat exposed to the opening in the sidewall. So thank you Black Diamond for another great lightweight solution...also, my brother-in-law was so impressed with the setup that you should be receiving a Megabug and Megamid order from him soon.
