Ideas, advice, tips, and tricks regarding shelter, shade, tents, and camping. Yes, this includes RV's too.
Does anyone know what that material with the holes in it is called, to allow the wind to pass through. the military uses it but i have no idea how to find anything about it. hope that makes sense i can picture it but all i can say is its a thick fabric, with half circle wholes where the material just flaps, was thinkin it would work well against the wind.

I just use shade cloth available at agricultural supply places. My opinion is 70% shade is the minimum and that knit shade cloth lasts way longer than woven. In fact I tell people not to buy woven shade cloth only buy knit. Shade cloth can be had in nearly any size and with grommets added it is really great!

Hiya Krispy, You might just start poking around military surplus places online. You will most likely find it.

Another option is aluminet, pricier then camo though.
