Good in the summer and the winter surprisingly At 260 pounds I’m not a fan of a single layer monolite hammock but the double layer for me is super comfortable and my customers agree the surprising thing is that in the winter time the heat transfer from your body warms the quilts up faster and the material does not feel cold against your skin I’m like hyper day and MTN and takes it a couple minutes to warm up monolite Monolite warms up pretty much Instantly what is a gray added bonus plus it’s super comfortable and it makes a really good bug netting you don’t have to worry about accidentally tearing it, it makes a super strong netting compared to regular noseeum.
Walhalla hammocks and Outdoors
1.0 oz MONOLITE Ripstop Nylon Mesh
My newest favorite material from RSBTR! This stuff has a few desirable properties, as noted in the description but I'll repeat those here for good measure. Breathable, DWR, lightweight, durable, stiff (for the weight) and transparent. The monofilament gives it a smooth feel when running through your hand but feels course when you rub the fabric against itself between your fingers. So far I've made a hammock and several gear bags of various sizes. It's the blend of weight, durability and transparency that is a winner for me. The transparent property makes for an awesome hammock experience where you feel like you're floating mid-air and you can see your surroundings when lying down. I don't think I can go back to opaque fabric for hammocks - especially at this weight and durability. As for the gear bags - same story. I can see exactly what's in each bag - no more dumping out a bag or fishing around for something. A small detail but a serious convenience.
Other thoughts: Due to its stiffness, I have noticed that it's harder to compress down to a small size. Also, I wish it came in white!
I made a hammock out of some orange Monolite. I feared it would feel really stretchy and unstable, but it actually feels really good and strong. It is also pretty trippy to lay in a see through hammock. I don’t have a ton of nights in it yet, so durability is unanswered at this point, but it seems like it won’t be an issue. Glad I gave it a whirl!
Good product slow shipping.
