    looking for material for mesh pockets

    Hey guys, Im making a backpack (designed for hammock campers) and would like to put mesh pockets on it, kind of like a G4 pack. Any suggestions for materials to make the pockets out of, and where to buy the material? Thanks!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    I've not done any business with any of these folks. I am just aware of their existence from reading make your own gear web sites. There are some others I've seen before but just can't recall them just now. fwiw a start

    You can get a really cheap mesh laundry bag at WW. I've seen them in Black and Red. Comes with a bonus cordlock!

    Crate and Barrel has a pair for $4, but they're white.

    Target and other home stores normally carry them. The fabric from one bag should be enough for lots of pockets, and would be cheaper than the shipping from any fabric supplier...

    Just me being cheap again...
