  • We had all but given up on sub 1.0 oz woven fabrics. Then along came MONOLITE...

    Ultralight woven fabrics are great for quilts and garments. But durability can take a nosedive for stressing applications like hammocks and bags.

    MONOLITE was developed to combat this problem. Constructed with a unique monofilament yarn and mesh weave, this fabric has the best durability we've EVER seen for the weight - and by a wide margin.  

    Used as a woven fabric, it's strong plus much more resistant to snagging and abrasion than fabrics of similar weight (e.g. 1.1 oz Ripstop Nylon).  

    As a mesh, it blows away traditional options like our 0.9 oz Noseeum. It's stronger, way more durable, and insanely breathable with a CFM over 1000 (full data sheet here). 

    Lastly, whether used as a fabric or mesh, it's stiffer with more structure than your typical ultralight fabric. This makes it a lot easier to sew.

    Typical applications for MONOLITE include ultralight hammocks, bugnetting, tent screens, stuff sacks, lightweight bags, or garment lining material.

Fabulously Fantastic Fabric

If you're a person on the lighter side and want to make your first ultra-lite hammock, skip all the other stuff and buy this. It's cheaper, lighter, and easier to sew than the MTN XL. I made a 9ftx4ft hammock for carrying around at music festivals at less than 6 oz. Added some dyneema straps and whoopie slings and the whole setups is under 8oz.


Just opened up my shipment from the crew at ripstop and.... wow! Super lightweight, super strong and great feel. Cant wait to incorprate this product into a bunch of protypes we are working on!

Thanks for the review! We can't wait to see what you come up with!
That there is a new mesh material. Excellent!!!

In the last campaign, the fox broke the net on the tent. I didn’t know what to do or how to fix the net. And here I get the news from you, That there is a new mesh material. But much better and stronger. I ordered it. He really looks just fine. unlike the standard tent mesh. It is easy to work with him, he is clearly much stronger. And breathes like a standard mesh. I am very satisfied. It now remains to persuade my wife to sit down at the sewing machine and repair the tent. :)

Amazing textile!!

Very interesting material! Light as mesh with the strength of ripstop! Prototyping this material as the window in my tent design 👍🏼

many potential uses

I am currently making another backpack and wanted a lightweight mesh for pockets. The monolite mesh seemed up to the task. I repeated the tear test comparison with other fabrics and was amazed at it's resistance to tears and abrasions.
