I'm looking to make a pouch that I can use for both hanging from my hammock's ridgeline as well as attaching to the outside of my backpack (additional storage). I'm looking for a lightweight fabric that will breathe well.
I was thinking of using a lightweight mesh fabric since it will obviously allow air in and you could see the contents inside such a pouch. I am worried, however, that if the mesh is too fine that it won't allow water to escape easily. Or perhaps it would be better to go with a lightweight laundry bag sort of mesh? My worry there is that it would significantly heavier. Any recommendations on a good fabric to use?
