    Q:

    Is the 24" measurement the diameter when opened in a cylindrical shape or is it the measurement across the bag when laid flat? I want to use this to carry an excercize ball with a 24" diameter, among other things.

    thanks

      A:

      The measurement is the width of the bag when empty and laid flat.
      These mesh bags are best used as a way to organize loose items
      that are stored in a large internal frame back-pack or on a raft.
      They are a bit awkard to carry since they only have a drawstring 
      that cinches the top shut. If you want something to carry a 24" exercisze
      ball I suggest you buy the NRS Purest Duffle--it has both handles and a strap.
      My wife and I both have one and we love them.

      A:

      I have the blue bag (large). The specified dimensions are listed as empty and
      flat length and width, not diameter and length. I took a look at mine and indeed
      it is the measured flat width of the opening, 24".
      So, the cylindrical diameter is right about 15.25".
      The diameter is roughly 2/3 times the flat width or exactly 2/pi times the flat
      width (pi = 3.141592...). The rough diameter calcation is about 5% larger than
      the actual diameter so one has to be careful with rough estimates.
      A closer approximation can be reached by using 2/3 times the flat width (rough
      diameter) and subtracting 5% of the rough diameter from the rough diameter;
      2/3*L-.05*2/3*L or 2/3*L - 2/3*L/20. This way one doesn't have to remember pi,
      only 5% or 1/20.
      For a 24" diameter ball you'll need a 38" flat width bag or greater. You might
      try the NRS PFD bag;
      http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=3094&pdeptid=1008 , but it's a bit
      pricey in comparison though.
      Cheers

      A:

      The bag is a envelope shape, so the measurements are flat.

        Large holds 4 life jackets easily and is a great way to corral your gear pre and post paddle. Own two! One for my kayaking equipment and one for the canoe tripping extras.

        Bag needs a wash after 2-3 paddles to remove the river smell, but helps if rinsed with rest of gear immediately afterwards.

        I own both the large blue bag and the smaller yellow bag and use them for storing and transporting our kayaking gear. The large bag holds our 2 PFDs (but could hold a couple more) and some other gear, and the smaller bag holds all our misc little stuff.

        I wish the mesh was of a better quality and had a tighter weave, but I'm hoping I'll be surprised and these bags will hold up in the long run. I used to be into scuba diving and had a mesh bag back then that I now wish I hadn't gotten rid of. It was a much better quality bag, but the thing i liked most about it was it had a shoulder strap attached! THAT is what these bags need!! I think the NRS bags are overpriced for what they are.

          These bags work great for sorting large quantities of wet gear. When the group is big, it is so nice to give everyone their bag and not waste time trying to determine whose stuff belongs to whom.

          Use it for my stuff that gets wet on river trips. Water drips out of it just like it should.

                  Comments about Mesh Bags:

                  The mesh bags are perfect for storing my extra gear that I don't need in my main hauling bag. Great to keep at home and an extra in the vehicle when putting stuff aside during the float shuttles.
