Super light and sturdy ditty sacks, do the job!

  • None, so far
  • except maybe a little pricey


In stark contrast to the way I live at home and work, I am an organization freak when it comes to backpacking. I like everything tidy and easy to find.

These mesh sacks come in a set of three different sizes. The largest I use for my kitchen setup (stove, fuel, pot, mug, spoon, lighter); the mid-size houses my water purification setup; and the smallest my catch all for small stuff (compass, knife, headlamp, backup lighter, etc).

I like the mesh so that anything inside which might be damp from cooking or water treatment will dry out in a hurry. Despite the airy fabric these sacks are super sturdy. After a few trips, none of them show any wear.

The cord lock is permanently attached to the sack itself, instead of just floating on the cinch cord. It took a little getting used to, but certainly would make it less likely that they might come off and get lost.

All in all, these are a great way to keep organized, in a lightweight sturdy package.
