What is the difference between a dry bag and a mesh bag?

A scuba dry bag is one that is designed to transport gear, clothing, and personal valuables on diving trips. They can also be used to store clothing divers may want to keep dry. Mesh bags are used to transport gear or items and are not water resistant. They are usually lighter than dry bags. Water can flow freely into them but can also drain out.
