    Looks like a good deal for some DIY netting! Just what I needed.
    Is anyone a member of Sportsman's Guide Buyers Club so I can borrow your number (and save myself the $30 membership fee)?
    Thanks.

    Just a heads up, I previously purchased some "No-seeum" netting from Sportsman's Guide and I found it to be heavy and stiff with an almost plastic feel to it. I plan on making something out of it soon, but it just seems way too stiff.
    Dutch: Hammock is probably more weight but who wants to lay on the ground? I pee on the ground.

    SM,
    I was just about to ask if those specs seemed heavy.

    I wanted to cut a 72 x 48 panel in half to get two 36 x 48 panel.
    Then sew each half to a full panel to get two 108" x 48" panels.
    With shock cord etc that would weigh 5 lbs.
    I would trim it some, but still that is heavy.
    I'm not a gram weenie but I dont think mosquito netting should weight more than hammock and tarp and sleeping bag together.

    BTW they have the same deal at Bargain Outfitters (sister company ???)

    If anyone does buy this, let us know the weight and the quality.

    They may be sister companies. I ordered a tarp from Bargain Outfitters and my order came with a Sportsman's Guide catalog.

    I ordered some from Bargain Outfitters. Still $20 but S&H is $6. It's still cheaper than a $30 membership!
    I'll let you know how the quality turns out. Wish me luck.

    Our postal workers are pretty snippy but I'll see what I can do at the post office. I have a teenage daughter so scales are not permitted in our home.

    edit: IDEA!! I could go to Staples or someplace that sells postal scales and I could "test" one.

    Sorry guys, I didn't really look at anything besides $20 for 6 of them, but it immediately made me think of the DIY'ers here. Also, you don't need to have a membership at SG to buy from them, it just makes things a teeny bit cheaper in price.

    Even sewing a couple of them together to make a sock, it would come out about the same as my HammockBliss net, i think.
