“Of ALL the tents I looked at, yours was the best, hands down. This one stands up by itself, fits on a cot and is a tight weave!… He was exceptionally pleased with the tent. Everyone was jealous of how well it performed… He told me the other guys were envious as he sat, bug-free, in his tent. He loved it.”
Afghanistan is one country where you wouldn’t want to go down with malaria… or for that matter – any country. The mosquito-borne disease is characterized by alternations between chills and fever with sweating and it may lead to coma and death if not treated promptly. According to the CDC, all areas of Afghanistan which are lower than 6,500 feet in altitude have malaria between April-December. Amy’s son was well protected in his SansBug free-standing mosquito net tent which he placed on top of a military cot. And it’s not just the skeeters – the sand flies (midges) also drive you nuts. If you have a loved one serving abroad and are looking for a GI bed net, the SansBug I is what you need. Unlike other bed nets issued by the military in which you can only lie down, a 6′ person can comfortably sit in the SansBug.
