    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.

Easy to handle and high quality

I used this fabric for the hammock's integrated bagnet and some staff sacks.
The sewing is very easy and it has the property of being harder to ventilate than noseeum, so it was comfortable to use in winter.
The robust duplication also worked well on staff sacks.
It is also good to see the contents.
It seems that there are more color variations than when I purchased it and I want to use different colors:)


I used it for backpack side pockets, and am glad I did!

Working with Monolite

My project is an insulated UL Go Pro cover/stuff sack. I ordered Monolite to use as an inside liner, to be pared with DCF 0.34 on the exterior with a middle layer of synthetic insulation. The Monolite has been a good match, I love it's strength to weight ratio. Although it can be a bit slippery to work with, the ripstop pattern is helpful in keeping everything aligned. I have found using pinking shears when cutting helps with keeping raw edges from fraying as much.

testing on pack prototype

I'm currently trialing this fabric for use on a running pack prototype. Some pics of these packs are available on my blog. Durability for this use is still in question, but so far so good. The fabric will fray, so be careful to finish all seams.
