Hm, not a backpacking use, but they would make a good dispenser for reusing plastic shopping bags. Stuff them in the top, pull one by one out the bottom.

With 3 dogs and a girl just out of diapers, I coulda used one of them.

The mesh hanging pocket thingy cost .69 cents. Hanging on the same rack in the store was an interesting looking item made of fleece. I went back there to day and bought it. 8 feet away from where it hung were 5 more of these "blankets" I may go back tomorrow and buy all of them for future use somewhere. :roll:

When I got home I looked up the name that was on it. Here is what they turned out to be

I paid 2.99 for it. It is in new condition.

Tri mountain makes good products. I picked up a very nice rain racket with zip pits, zip out hood in the collar, and lots of pockets for $5 at a thrift store. Wore it today as a matter of fact. ;) I've seen other clothing from Tri-Mountain at the thrift stores. It all looks to be good quality.
