Afternoon, folks.

Has anyone here ever tried using a mosquito net as an alternative to an inner tent?

I bought a Mountain Warehouse single-skin tipi tent a while ago and looking for an inner tent to go with it.

I'm trying to find the lightest (and hopefully cheapest) effective option. Dimensions are: width 260cm x length 300cm x height 200cm.

Tent spec is here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234046871965

if i was you i would be looking to find a fly sheet to go over it rather than rely on the 1500mm HH it currently has, umbrellas are about the same level of waterproofing

I plan to spray extra proofer on the outer.

Yes....many are designed that way, but one which comes without an inner as standard, although one could add a specific inner, I chose instead to source another and saved a lot of money.
Never been that keen on spray on proofers although have used Fabsil on a cotton canvas tent, but now prefer not to use at all, and especially not to make up for any inherent inadequacies.
