This Cruise Mesh Bag from Mares is the ideal bag to store your equipment after diving. It is perfect for holidays - it's light, compact and protects your equipment while it dries. It is long enough to store even the longest fins in the market. It can be folded up in seconds, becoming a small round bag with a handle, no bigger than a round "pizza".
Accommodates fins up to 89cm in length
Approximate external dimensions: 940 x 380 x 380mm
Approximate weight 720g Construction
The bag is made out of a high tensile nylon webbing, with nylon canvas on the ends. The Nylon webbing is big enough to let air flow right through, but small enough that I've never lost anything that I carry in the bag - rubber tips, undergloves, you name it, it stays in there.
But even with smaller items, there's a zipper pocket inside the bag for easy storage, and this pocket is HUGE - you could put Kenny Phan in the pocket and have room for Lauren Hanson.
The pocket can also be used for packing up the bag - this allows me to pack it into a small profile if space is at a premium when I'm packing. What makes this bag special?
This bag is made for folks into scuba diving. They can take their gear off, toss it in this bag, and then WASH IT DOWN. No, I don't recommend washing your hema gear in this bag.
Hardshell and other closed bags tend to trap moisture, especially when they have a rubberized nylon for durability. This leads to a funk on day 2 that would kill a small kitten, and swords that look like they were painted with rust.
Let's face it - there are some sweaty fucking people in HEMA, myself included. We need all the help we can get.
This bag lets you carry around your sweat-soaked items, such as your jacket / trousers / Mask, without having them near your weaponry. It means you won't have to pack them into a sports tube just to get them back and forth from the venue, and they can stay in the bag and STILL dry out.
The same applies for day-to-day travel to class - this bag will let your equipment breathe, rather than develop a bacteria culture that would impress your high school science teacher.
