The Improved BedNet System (IBNS) was designed to fit securely onto a military cot with push-andlock straps on all four corners. The IBNS can also be used in the field thanks to its strong, waterproof tub floor. Its instant deployment, waterproof floor, and four corner buckles make the IBNS an efficient, fast-access shelter to protect soldiers from insects while asleep or resting on a cot OR in the field.
In addition, the IBNS is designed to be upgradable to our EBNS using a single pole and fly. This gives you protection from the elements in addition to the IBNS’s unsurpassed protection from insects.
The IBNS is constructed of 70 Denier 1.9 ounce ripstop nylon and fine mesh. It is EPA registered and has Permethrin bonded to the material for insect repellency. It is supported by a strong and ultra-light .134 diameter pultruded fiberglass rod which winds around the shelter, expanding it to its given shape. When the rolled up IBNS’s cinch strap is removed, the shelter is released and snaps into shape automatically; no assembly or set-up is required. A carry bag is included.
The coiled, stored size of the shelter is 13” x 13” x 3”. Since they pack so small they are perfect for "bug out" or disaster bags. CPAI-84 Fire Retardant rated. The Improved Bednet System can be upgraded to the Enhanced Bednet System with the Catoma Bednet Upgrade Kit.
The Improved Bed Net System (IBNS) was originally designed to fit securely onto a military cot with webbing and side release buckles on all four corners. After initial fielding, we were informed that Marines liked the product so much that they were deploying it in the field as well. In response, we ruggedized the design, creating the capability to add a rainfly. We have since delivered hundreds of thousands on contract. After yet another round of improvements, we are proud to re-introduce the Burrow™ IBNS with enhanced capability, more user friendly features, and improved parts and fittings.
The Burrow’s instant deployment and cot compatibility make it an efficient, fast-access shelter to protect users from insects and a great shelter for medical patients in the field. It is EPA registered and has Permethrin bonded to the material for insect repellency. The Burrow is supported by a strong and ultra-light .134” diameter pultruded fiberglass rod which winds through the shelter, expanding it to its given shape. When the rolled up Burrow’s cinch strap is removed, the shelter is released and snaps into shape automatically. No assembly or set-up is required.
