Which should I pick and why?
No order minimum. Choose this option to send fabric cut and folded (like a blanket). See continuous cut policy for full details on max cut lengths.
  • At a finished weight of 0.5 oz/yd 2, NS50 is 25% lighter  than our 0.67 oz and 45% lighter than our 0.9 oz noseeum. Developed and produced custom by RBTR, it is the lightest noseeum mesh on the market today.

    Note that this is the 2nd generation of NS50 ultralight noseeum mesh. Same weight, but significantly stiffer and less stretchy than previous generations. This makes the fabric easier to sew, snag resistant, and more durable

    Noseeum is a lightweight yet durable micro-mesh netting used to provide superior insect protection in the outdoors. Constructed with a tight, irregular knit pattern, noseeum shields you from even the smallest of pests. Great for use in ultralight bugnets, quilt baffles, and tent/shelter screens.

Great fabric and fast shipping!

I used this for my baffles in a down quilt. There was a slight learning curve. Its sews easy but stretches like crazy. Overall, I'm very happy with the noseeum mesh and have ordered more to make quilts for my entire family.

Ripstop Mesh

I really like this mesh. It's soft, but strong. I made my horse fly boots out of it and they haven't torn, even with his propensity for rolling! Highly recommended!

Bug tarp

I made a small bug tarp for backpacking. Used lightweight sill nylon and added Noseeum mesh around the sides.


I've probably used about 25 yards of this mesh for bivy and net-tent projects and I would highly recommend it. In my opinion, it's strength is on par with the heavier weight meshes and while it's stretchiness may be a downside for some applications where a taut pitch is required, I love that it stretches rather than causes runs when subjected to stress. The main downside is that it is more difficult to work with in my opinion and snags easily. The edges sometimes curl and when sewing two mesh pieces together, the edge can get sucked into the needle plate. Because of this, it might not be the best choice for a beginner project or for the most durable applications, but it's superb for UL gear.
