This is the actual Mesh used in theUS Army Improved Tactical Vest. This material is actually a 3 dimensional, sponge like nylon mesh about 5/16" (8mm) thick. It is composed of a "sandwich" of three interwoven layers. The top layer is a 4mm Nylon Hex Mesh, the middle layer consists of stiff nylon bristle, looped between, and woven into the top and bottom layers. The bottom layer is a fine, 2mm diamond mesh. This is an advanced textile product, and it performs very well in its intended use.
Both outer layers are relatively smooth and comfortable to the skin when worn on top of common apparel fabric. The textile is woven in such a manner that the ends of the stiff "bristle" of the inner layer are isolated from coming through to either side; preventing the ends of the "bristle" from creating an irritating abrasive surface. The inner "bristle" layer is really the heart of this material's functionality, it acts like a miniature mattress box spring; distributing weight and pressure over a wider area.
This bristle layer maintains up to a 1/4" free airflow zone across the entire area of the mesh. Note: this material meets military specifications but does not have it's own MILSPEC number. This material is a single component of a product which has been assigned a MILSPEC number as a complete system. Cut to order in One Yard increments. No refunds after order is cut. One Yard = 54" wide X 36" long (Approximately)
