    I've never heard about it on this forum. I assume it's a. hard to find and b. the weight savings over noseeum will be infinitesimal for the huge price of dyneema.

    I just checked them out, and I might buy them. Their price compared to Dutch's 2.2 Kevlar and light weight is worth the risk, IMO.

    Usually the smallest needle you can find will work best; Larger needle holes can cause stretch at the reinforcement patches. I've used a size 75 & 80 for waterproof fabrics.

    Acceptable Mule Tape Practice

    The use of 1">mule tape as tree straps has been very controversial.

    Especially on the east coast, where the trees tend to have very small diameters, the smaller webbing bites more into the tree.

    Mesh Baffles

    Do you guys prefer sewing through one or two layers of noseeum for baffles? From what I know, some people fold over the edge of the baffle material and sew through both layers for strength purposes.
