Five Best Mesh Camping Bags – Just the Right Bags for Active Outdoors

Updated on October 7, 2010

When a planning a trip to the outdoors, you’ll need some bags in which to store your precious camping equipment. A camping backpack is a must-have if it’s not enough for all the equipment you need to carry and you may want to use a durable camping duffel bag in which to put your sleeping bag, camping tent and other stuff.

Even if you get all your camping gear packed up in your camping bags, keeping them organized is another story. If you’ve gone through camping trips where you’ve had to take out all of your things just find a teeny weeny little misplaced gadget you’d been looking for, you don’t have to go through the same situation again. One tip for you is to get your things organized by using camping mesh bags for storing camping items that serve a particular purpose. For example, you can keep your soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and combs together in one bag and put your undergarments in another. Camping mesh bags are great for these because they allow you to see the contents right away. This way, you’ll see everything grouped accordingly when you open your bags. This means no more turning your camping bags upside down for your camping flashlight and for me, this will keep all things organized.

Aside from little mesh bags, you can also bring bigger camping mesh bags for storing soaked clothes. Whether it’s because of a long hike or a wild ride down the rapids, using mesh bags is one way to carry your wet things without them getting smelly or uncomfortable to deal with. Having separate mesh bags for them is also more convenient since you keep them away completely from your dry clothes and sensitive gadgets. Here are some of my very fine camping mesh bags I have collected that will make your camping more convenient.
