Bought this material with the idea of making an ultralight inner double wall tent.
I was informed this material would allow moisture to drip through.
I formed a bag from this material and filled with water, and yes it does leak when you rub the material with your hand, but with an extra coating of DWR water drops may bead up and run off.
My feeling at this point: (A) This material is certainly significantly more water-resistant than open mesh mosquito netting often used on inner tents; (B) It is very breathable; (C) It is strong for its weight; and (D) It is lighter than most materials used for inner tents.
The main purpose of a double wall tent is to try to maintain a temperature above the dew point inside the inner tent.
We will see if this idea has merit.
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review Fred! It sounds like you did your research on this fabric and your tent project sounds rad! We would love to see photos of your UL double-walled tent. Here is a link to share any pictures if you'd like! https://forms.gle/Pjk8pYvEGKu4JGNL6
I used this to replace a tent screen door the dog had ripped. Her nails are less likely to snag on this mesh. I “cut” it with an old soldering iron which kept it from fraying while I sewed.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review John! We're glad you were able to replace your tent screen door with this 0.7 MONOLITE Mesh, great choice! Repaired is always better than replaced!
