I'm looking for light "aftermarket" side pockets for my REI UL Cruise 60 and any pack I subsequently buy, like an Osprey EXOS 58 for example.
My current REI side pockets are 400 cu. In each and I'd like to keep the pockets about that size.
But I would like to get lighter fabric for the pockets, something hopefully in Dyneema-like Spectra grid that would help when bushwhacking.
Anyone out there know of such animals? I can always sew light webbing to the pocket backs for attatching if they come "naked".
P.S. I do not want to sew these pockets on permenantly but buckle them on with the short Fastex buckled straps I'm now using.
P.P.S. In case anyone wonders, I like side pockets for gear I need quickly like 1st aid kit, toilet kit, potty bag, Steripen, etc. Plus, of course, it leaves more room for food and water inside the main bag.
