Purchased to make baffles for a DIY down top quilt. Used rotary cutter to cut to desired widths. Finished quilt today and this mesh worked great for the baffles! Quality product.
I made a light wight hammock bug net from this mesh. It was easy to cut and sew (even adding the zipper was fine), and is strong enough for this purpose yet light weight. I used office tape for marking the cutting lines which worked better than chalk or pen. My bug net became large and hits the ground, collecting small sticks and leaves from ground and being accidentally stepped onto with hiking boots. Based on my first trip, I'm not sure if the net is going to survive that kind of treatment in long term so I'm planning to either make it narrower (and even more light weight) or replacing the critical area with another fabric (that would increase the weight but would on the other hand allow stepping out from the hammock while inside the bug net).
If you are limited to scissors for cutting (I don't yet own a rotary cutter or convenient cutting surface, or a hot wire knife) it can be difficult to cut this stuff straight. Also, when it comes to sewing, you'll need to pin accurately and often (or use clips to clip the material together if you don't want pin holes) in order to keep the material from stretching and misaligning seams/edges, etc.
It seems to be strong enough for the purpose I used it for (bug bivy tops) and doesn't really fray, which is nice compared to the monolite material I have used for a couple other bivvies I made. I'm thinking of using painters tape to mark my seams on future projects to more accurately sew everything along the correct lines.
Fast shipping and precisely the best, cost effective product available. Ripstop does a great job correctly describing the product and stocking great material. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Great purchase. Very light weight and takes up less volume than the mesh I used previously for my Fronkey hammock net.
