I'm about to order four yards of no-see-um mesh. Of course I want to get the best deal, but I also don't want to get ripped off, and I've found very limited information about the various sellers. Does anyone here have experience with the sellers below?
.77oz/sq yd black nylon
3.04 shipping
17.04 total
.96oz/sq yd gray only, material unknown
3.22 shipping
15.02 total
.9oz/sq yd black polyester
2.95 shipping
15.95 total
.87oz/sq yd black polyester
6.50 shipping
19.50 total

EDIT: I accidentally posted this before I finished authoring it. I'm not sure I even would have, as it was as much to organize my own thoughts as solicit input. C'est la vie, if you've got something to add, go for it.

I've used DIYGear a couple of times - great service, quick shipping.

I've heard good things about quest, but no first hand experience.

I just got my order from, and I'm very pleased. It was a great price, fast shipping, seems to be very high quality, and they actually gave me a few extra inches of the zipper I ordered. I haven't measured the full length of the mesh yet, but it's slightly wider than the advertised 54".

I'll be ordering from them again if/when I have the chance.

All of those vendors are fine. I've ordered noseeum mesh and other stuff from Quest before. I went the cheap route with their seconds/scraps. That was went on my first MYOG tarp to keep the skeeters at bay.
