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