Hi All,
Sorry if this has been rehashed but does anyone know where to buy event fabric and mosquito screen?

Most of the outdoor fabric sources have mosquito netting (OWF, The Rain Shed, Seattle Fabrics, etc.) Thru-hiker.com has extra lightweight netting.

I've never seen eVent for sale, but the other w/b fabrics work. RCT Fabrics sometimes gets overstock from the major manufacturers, so they might occasionally get eVent.

I have tried and failed in the past to find anyone retailing eVent fabric. I think the only hope is to contact some small manufacturers (Mountain Laurel Designs being the most likely) and see if they will sell you some. Screen is easy - the lightest is Nanoseeum from thru-hiker.com at .7 oz/yd. and they also have spinnaker fabric, which may be an answer to your other post re the hammock fly.

REI also sells mosquito net on a roll. At least mine does.
