    I'm a little concerned- 26 oz for 24 square feet of mesh?!? that's something like 10oz /square yard! even polarguard doesn't weigh that much...
    now, 26 oz shipping weight for all 6 panels? that would be different..
    KM (who is bored enough to do math today)

    OK, if its 26 oz for all 6 panels then I am in.
    If its 26 oz each then that is too heavy.

    Timberr, I bet you can tell without a scale. Just hold it in your hands.
    Do all 6 weigh about 1.5 lbs or do all 6 weigh 10lbs?
    Gallon of milk = 8 -9 lbs.
    Bag of flour = 5 lbs.

    I'll let you know as soon as they get here. I shipped them cheapo/slow boat method so it'll be another week or so.

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Timberr, that's fine. We have about 6 months before we need to sorry about bugnets. Now is the time all DIY threads turn to under quilts.

    THEY ARE LIGHT.
    I emailed Bargain Outfitters about the weight of these panels.
    26 oz is the total weight for all 6 panels.
    Each panel weighs about 4.3 oz.

    I calculate I need 2.5 panels for a bugnet, plus cordage, minus trimming bugnet then each finished net shoudl weigh about 11oz.
