Looking for a decent mesh bag for hotel to boat carrying of dive gear.
Needs to be lightweight, backpack straps, mesh, side zipper. I will compress this bag for airline travel and only use it when carrying to the boat or shore for a dive. Only putting dive gear in it, no photo gear.

I am tired of my 'open at the top only' mesh bag and would like one with side zipper.

The Stahlsac Bonaire seems like a good choice but would like something that costs less than $85.
So far, my searching has found nothing better.

So I come to this community for advice. Have any?

Look for a good heavyweight mesh laundry bag and have a local seamstress shop sew a zipper into its length?

Bag itself shouldn't be but $5-6 at Container Store, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc....

Current rig: Sony SLT-alpha55 in Ikelite housing, Sigma 105mm f2.8 DC Macro w/ Ike 5505.58 flat port or Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM behind UWCamStuff custom 5" mini-dome. Dual INON z240 Type IVs triggered with DS51 for TTL mimicry, or DS51 alone with home-made ringflash assy for macro.


Topside, unhoused: Sony SLT-alpha99, Sigma 150-500mm + 1.4TC (Saving for Sony 70-400 G2), Sigma 15mm diagonal fish, Sony 24-70mm f2.8 CZ, Tamron 180mm f2.8 Macro...all the gear and nary a clue...

I have the Stahlsac and really think it is worth the money. I have been using it without an issue for almost 6 years.
