I'd like to make a small UL daypack for layover hikes. I just can't figure out what materials I need for the shoulder straps. I'm looking to make straps like the ones on an REI Flash 18 -- it's a mesh/net on one side and a stretchy thin neoprene-like fabric on the other. What are these fabrics called? (I'm ordering them online from a place like Quest/owfinc/etc.) Thanks.
