Question Mozzie net online-purchase-where?

We need to find a place to buy a good mozzie net for Africa and S.A. but none of the normal online places offer one. Where can I find one that can be used in either a hotel or tent? anyone have a suggestion--soon?

Try this... REI: Outdoor Gear & Clothing for Camping, Hiking, Cycling, Kayaking, Fitness & More. simply enter "mosquito net" in the search window, they have plenty starting at $26usd.

try military surplus stores like Welcome to Silverman's Secure Online Store , they always have a good selection but our prices in UK are really crap, seems to be double the rest of the world!

malaria(amongst other things) is a major problem in africa, i would think you could get a good net almost anywhere there?

Thanks all.

Don't know how I missed them at REI, but you are right. They have a bunch of the nets at good prices. Now, with the mozzie net, all that remains to be done is save a few more pennies and we will join the wandering riders around the world. What a way to die of old age!? sitting on a scooter and forgetting where you live, where you are going, or are coming from.
