should have info about it if you ask.
The bugnet-type stuff at my local Walmarts doesn't look like it would
stop small gnats and stuff, just the skeeters. It's only .77/yd,
though! I've found lots of stretchy muslin-type material in the bin
that works great, though.

for forest bug netting. (It's what my brother used on his starter
hammock just to see if the thing would work out for him.) But I
wouldn't trust it canoeing or yakking, as it probably won't keep out
sand fleas. But for someone who wants to try out hammocking it's
readily available and dirt cheap. (An application of Permathin would
The "Nylon Netting" that WalMart sells is too open for bug netting,
but should be good for structural stuff: supporting insulation in an
undercover, or perhaps holding pads together like Speer's new product
does. Very cheap, weighs damn near nothing.
The nylon "sheers" stuff sometimes seen in fabric store bargain bins
is as effective as no-seeum netting, but allows less airflow. It
might be useful as a no-condensation wind barrier in cooler weather.
Just throwing some ideas out... :-)
