    Ditto on the Shug reference to ripstopbytheroll.

    If you are really patient, you could wait until enough yardage of mesh hits the "2nds" outlet. Buy the mesh discounted, and then buy all the other supplies listed in the kit.

    Still a good deal, even as a full price kit.

    Also check the jellyfish diy video on this exact zippered bugnet kit. She will make your life so much easier.

    Good luck!

    This is all good info to have, glad I joined.

    I take it that the 0.90z is heavier because it is a finer mesh?

    A Fronkey-style -- or even a zippered -- bug net is VERY easy to make and only requires a handful of components. There are simple plans for a dozen different designs littered all over Hammock Forums and YouTube. You really don't need a "kit"; it's not like buying a kit for a pre-cut cat-cut tarp...

    I copied Fronkey's net and picked up my material from wally World. I used 2 black sheer drapes and sewed them together. Worked perfectly and is light and rugged. Best of all.... under $10. total.
