Does anyone know of a good source for relatively lightweight stretch mesh that would function well as pack pockets? I want to buy some to add pockets to my GoLite Ion. Thanks in advance.

Similar to the ULA Conduit? Maybe ask Brian at ULA for his source?

Great idea... somehow I missed that the ULA packs had stretch mesh. Thanks!

quest outfitters has the 3.7oz lycra micro mesh. You can also use any 4-way stretch lycra(spandex) as it shouldn't hold water(may not be able to see contents though)Spandura(cordura spandex) is also a possibility, a bit heavy though.

I may end up using lycra but you hit it right on the head - I'd like to be able to see the gear. The micro mesh sounds a little fragile. I'd like to see a sample before buying enough to do a project. Let me know if / when you have some in hand if you don't mind.
