NSN: 3740-01-543-5652 (Coyote Brown)
The Catoma IBNS (Improved BedNet System) is designed to fit securely onto a military cot with push-and-lock 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 the EBNS using a single pole and fly. This gives you protection from elements in addition to the IBNS's unsurpassed protection from the elements in addition to the IBNS's unsurpassed protection from insects.
The IBNS is constructed of 70 Denier 1.9 oz. 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 release 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". CPAI-84 Fire Retardant rated. The Improved BedNet System can be upgraded to the Enhanced BedNet System with the Catoma BedNet Upgrade Kit.

Outstanding design. Fits easily inside or on the outside of a pack. I have actually had two of these. My orginal was issued by military and lasted through two years of daily use in iraq. Worked well both alone on the ground and with a military cot. Excellent protection from all flying and crawling insects. When it finally gave out, one of the fiberglass rods inside snapped, I bought one on my own dime for a future deployment.
