After rinsing simple hang the bag up and let your gear drip and air dry, ready for your next day of diving.

    This is one of the best things I have purchased for carrying all my snorkel and day gear. I was used to hauling all my gear around in a mesh carry bag (handles only)and it was always awkward and tired up one of your hands, we hike over lava flows and lots of uneven ground to get to the best spots, and you really need both hands free in these cituations. This bag fixes all of that and now have it all on my back. It holds all my equipment, a towel, underwater camera and dry clothes. You could put two peoples gear in one of these packs but it could get heavy for how we use them. I was willing to load all the gear in one bag but my wife has her own bag and it is very manageable for her. (She is petite) I only regret I did not get it at the price it is now advertised for.(darn) The only thing that takes some getting used to is the top closure cords, but once you figure out the trick, that is no longer a problem.(you have to slide the bag on the lines instead of pulling on the draw cords) You would be nuts not to own one of these bags.

    I like this backpack and took it with me to Bonaire where it was fine. However, back home I put a little too much weight in it, and the shoulder straps are not sewed with strong enough thread and one of them pulled out in the middle, rendering that strap useless. I sewed it back myself with stronger thread and, hopefully, the backpack is back in business. Sure, put your regular gear in it...but don't include your weights. 20 lbs total is okay, but if you put in 40 lbs of stuff, you might be asking for trouble.

    I purchased two Stahlsac products. The zipper on both the products broke on the very first outing. Oddly enough the zipper on the suitcase wasn't even used. It just broke....

      Comments about Stahlsac Panama Mesh Backpack:

      bought 2 of these bags in 1992 and have used them for a lot of dives and for snorkel adventures. I have loaded them up with as much as 60 lbs ea and they handle the weight and bulk quite well. I am dissappointed that after 22 years my bag has started to fray and looks like it might give out someday and that I am having to buy another one.

        Comments about Stahlsac Panama Mesh Backpack:

        My spouse and I each have one and we pack them in our big gear bag when we travel. Then we just pull the stuff we need for each dive trip, shove it in the Stahlsac and go. I don't have to worry about weight or bulk or stowability, it's all good. It would be an improvement to have a couple of smaller pockets or dividers in the bag so everything didn't just fall to the bottom in a pile. The long zip section is a big help as is the front pocket, but more is always better.

            This is a great bag. Large enough to get a full set of equipment in, including bc. I love the fact that I can throw it on my back so that I can carry other stuff.
