Why We Like The Mega Bug Tent

The buzzing and chirping at night can be a relaxing thing to fall asleep to unless it's coming from inside the canopy with us, so we pack the Mega Bug Tent for all our backpacking pursuits. We set up quickly with the easy one-pole design. The mesh canopy keeps mozzies out but still lets cool summer breezes pass through, giving us bite-free, sweat-free slumber. Even freshly soaked ground can't ruin our sleep with the fully sealed tub floor stopping the moisture from creeping in.

The super roomy megabug

I purchased the mega bug and mega lite to use with my wife and son on canoe trips and backpacking adventures. The two pieces can be used separately or together. We love how roomy the whole setup is! The only improvement I'd ask for are some more pockets on the inside of the mega bug.

Up to the task in Zambia!

I used this bug tent inside my Mega Light for 10 days of running the Zambezi. Slept soundly with the peace of mind that critters and crawlers would stay outside. Even survived a minor 0300 flood event when I had to wake up and drag everything uphill, with some gear still inside! Worth the long-awaited back order!

Great Addition

We went with the Mega Light and Mega Bug when we needed a four person tent for a recent family trip to Yellowstone (2 adults and 2 kids). The bug insert performed really well. With used with the Mega Light there are some tricks to staking it out so that the netting does not get wet with condensation over night and can be packed dry from underneath. Keep some tension on the tie outs and use a rock or small stick to ensure that the Bug basin/netting tie outs are at ground level and that the tent tie outs are at the top of the stake (separated by about 6 cm). This will make sense the first time you pitch the tent.

An addition that pairs well with a mid

If you're a fan of mega mids, but you're going to be in wet climate like the Appalachians, Cascades, or Alaska then this is the perfect pair. Keep the light weight and ease of set up but you have a floor for the mud and a net for the mosquitos

Essential insert for the Megalight!

If your travels take you anywhere with insects, this is an essential insert beneath a Megalight tent.

Kept the mosquitoes out!

We camped by a small lake in Ontario, marshy woodland all around. The mosquitoes were thick, yellow, and lazy, swarming and waiting just outside our tent, which effectively kept them at bay.

Nice Insert for the Mega Light!

Got the mega bug to compliment our mega light for when the family travels. Helps with keeping the bugs out, especially when we're keeping the mega light open for venting. Helps provide that basic in between when you're coming from a regular tent back ground. Looking forward to using it more!

Nice tent

Very well made and thoughtful design. The tent (including support pole/stakes) is very lightweight. I like that it has a pocket at the top to hang a light if needed. Looking forward to some bug-free summer camping!

Awesome ten!

This is my second mega bug. My dogs jumped through the netting of the old one a couple times, and after a number of patches, I just decided to replace it with a new one. Great design, spacious, and super fast and easy to set up. With the rain fly, the bathtub floor keeps your dry from the rain up here in Oregon. I've done a lot of backpacking in the PNW with this tent, and even took it for a bicycle tour through the Netherlands a couple years ago. I highly recommend!

A great addition to my mega light

Although snow is in our forecast here in the Wind River Mountains, I set up my new Mega bug to check out its compatibility with my Mega light. Perfect! Both products will be used for Wildland fire assignments this summer. I work in fire / aviation. My longtime (17 years) crew Teton Helitack has used many Black Diamond products. As a former Climbing Ranger at Mt Rainier NP , quality and durability is key for SAR and emergency response equipment.
