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).
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.
Lastly, as part of our larger green fabric initiative, 1.0 oz MONOLITE uses a more ECO friendly, C6 DWR (Durable Water Repellant). This gives the fabric water resistance while mitigating the environmental impact. If you're interested in reading more on topic of DWR, check out this article from Patagonia.com.
Typical applications for MONOLITE include ultralight hammocks, bugnetting, tent screens, stuff sacks, lightweight bags, or garment lining material.

We're glad you love it Desi! The 1.0 MONOLITE is a great choice. Enjoy!
I love this stuff. Easy to work with in every respect and I find so many uses for it. Makes for a nice touch and flash of color for end caps on hammocks. I love it for bags for tarps, both larger, airy and neat packaway styles. A. 93 Membrane tarp neatly packed into a monolite stuff sack is a thing of beauty.
Thanks for the review! This is such a great fabric for ultralight weight hammocks. We are big fans of it here at RBTR, Enjoy!
Great material very versalitile
Great way to get started with MYOG!
Monolite hammocks are great way to get started with high-quality, easy to use MYOG!
We agree! Thanks for the review Michael, enjoy your hammock!
im using this fabric to make a bug jacket for climbing. regular noseeum mesh will just get torn apart. its a bit slippery when sewing but it is way easier than with noseeum. The fabric is stiff yet very soft on the skin. The color options are awsome too. Great product overall, well done.
What a great DIY project to use with the 1.0 oz MONOLITE mesh. I hope the bug jacket works well and thanks for the review Charles!
