    Weight of Mosquito Netting?

    I'm planning out my bug netting for a speer type hammock. In my part of the world noseeums are not a problem. So using mosquito netting at 200 holes per inch versus noseeum netting at 525 holes per inch is not a problem. Mosquito netting would also provide better ventilation.

    BUT I've been unable to find the weight of mosquito netting . I see noseeum at 1.1 oz/sqyd and nanoseeum at 0.7 oz/sqyd. Anyone know the weight of mosquito netting? If its a big penalty, I'll stick with noseeum or nanoseeum.

    I bought some camo netting at Walmart ($1 bin) and it weighs about 0.9 oz./sq.yd. (about because this is my own measuring and calculation). I don't know how the hole size compares to "mosquito" netting, but the holes are larger than my house window screens or tent netting. I know it would let noseeums through, probably not mosquitoes.

    Thanks guys!

    Looks like vtarmynavy mentioned by FF is a good source and I'll betcha the weight of 0.9 oz reported by catnip is true of 200 hole mosquito netting.

    So now I know: use mosquito netting and buy it from vtarmynavy.
