Mesh bags are Multi purpose light in weight easy to carry and can be rolled up to a very small piece for traveling.
Mesh Bags are used for a wide range of sport luggage. Whether you take it to carry your Dive Equipment, go water skiing, to the pool, on a fishing trip, or just to the beach – they are also suitable for shopping in the supermarket. Mesh Bags makes carrying, cleaning, and storing snorkels, toys, and towels effortless.
There are a couple of things you should be aware of before buying!
Comparing Regular to Mesh Bags
Carrying sweaty, wet or muddy sport gear can be a real mess with regular duffel or gear bags. Your regular gear bag is hard to wash and dry, hence it can lead to the development of mold, odor and bacteria. That’s where Mesh bags come in very handy.
Tote handles on Duffel Mesh Bags
The tote Handles should be properly attached possibly even hook-and-loop secured and even if the bag is fully loaded and heavy you can feel confident to grab and go.
A shoulder strap if included is detachable with a hook on each side. It is there to be able to throw the bag over your shoulder and carry it that way as when heavy it is not easy to carry the bag with just one hand.
The mesh is made of Polyester or Nylon fibers. The handles and straps are made from nylon webbing with a high tear resistance. When buying, look at the hooks to see if they are sturdy enough as these are more likely to be the weak points.
Mesh Bag drying
Mesh bags are very quick drying and due to preventing mildew from occurring. They can be hand and or machine washed with a max of 30°C Water temperature.
Mesh Bag Zippers
It might be a good idea to look for large-toothed plastic or aluminum zippers due to the fact that sand salt and sun are very hard on zippers and steel zippers will rust, clog and tear very quickly.
