  • 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.

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. :)

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.
