Your ultralight shelter setup is pretty much useless when it's blackfly season, or at least it was until the Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo II Insert came along. This ultralight, fully-enclosed insert features no-see-um mesh canopy and a bathtub floor to protect against biting insects, crawling bugs, and soggy ground. Crafted from Dyneema fabric, the bathtub floor is tough and waterproof, yet incredibly lightweight and highly packable. This insert really shines when paired with Hyperlite's Echo II or Flat tarps, creating a fully-enclosed and waterproof shelter that weighs in at less than two pounds for the entire package.

Q & A
Seams fell apart at the zipper
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I am on a thru hike and using this insert. After a few weeks on the trail the stitching at the zipper started to unravel, and had become an opening of more then 2 feet. I contacted HMG and they were not willing to send me a replacement. I politely told them that I would be forced to give appropriate feedback on the item to let others be aware of both the customer service as well as the product. I would not recommend this product to someone.
