Im travelling south america soon with laptop tetc, i'm looking at purchasing a web for my rucksack when on buses, trips and asleep etc! the only ones i can find are rather expensive (around £50) anyone know where i can get one cheaper on-line? i'm struggling as no on ebay cheers....luke
Be aware that those net mesh things are an advertisement for "steal me, there is more here than dirty underwear". I would therefore not bother with the things. (I would also leave the laptop at home, but that is another story.)
50 GBP is a normal price for the security meshes, it will be difficult to get them cheaper. If you are determined anyway get an ebay account.
I agree about the mesh, I have been thinking of getting one, but I have heard they make your pack stick out like a sore thumb, and they're quite difficult to put on if in a hurry/busy area (like on a train). They are also quite heavy. So as an alternative I'm thinking of just getting a piece of wire with eyelets or loops at each end, (something like this http://www.thesitebox.com/Category/4087/eyelet-end-gripple-hanger.aspx or http://www.thesitebox.com/Category/4090/gripple-loop-end-hangers.aspx) Padlocking my zips, and then stringing the wire around my pack and a fixture and padlocking it....Loads cheaper, lighter and less obvious. Maybe something you could consider
