    Does anyone know of a canvas style non-elastic cargo net that has smaller than 6x6 mesh?

    I want to use one as a sling under my tonneau to toss things like tarps, life jackets. etc without taking up bed floor space. Most of the canvas style ones seem to have huge openings while the smaller ones are the little bungee cargo nets which I have and they don't hold much weight.

    Something like this but with smaller openings

    Or just buy some poultry or deer fence from Home Depot and make your own.

    Thanks. Yeah I looked at the Gladiator ones and the 6x6 holes are too big. It'll be used as a sling/hammock style storage with the tonneau closing over the top of it. I have kayak gear that I want to toss in there that would fall through or get stuck in the larger openings.

    I'll take a closer look at the Bulldog stuff as 4x4 has promise. Thank you.

    Failing that, I guess the other option would be to add a 2nd layer of mesh of some sorts to the 6x6 that would still allow drainage but keep smaller things from falling through.

    I actually looked at roof storage options like that but they all seem too small to span the bed and I'd be worried about the plastic clips breaking with anything of notable weight added to them. Thanks though :)

    So for a test I purchased one of the 6x6 mesh style ones from Amazon. Unfortunately they seem to make these with a natural sag in them which is probably better overall for their intended use. However for my want when I stretch it to the max there is a droop of about 6" in the middle due to the webbing straps being longer.

    So back to the drawing board :(

    Nice! I'll take a look and see if they have anything that might work.
