High quality suggie safe material (outside and inside) Not the common sleeping pouch fabric
Why? Simply because it is hard to wash that fabric properly. The texture of fabric, being napped or weaved, often gets a worn look after numerous washings no matter how much care is taken in the laundering process.
So here is the best pouch for your sugar glider, last longer

When you first get your sugar glider, they will have to take some time to get used to you and the new environment. Bonding is a process that develops over time, and there are several things you can do to make it progress smoothly. When your glider is sleeping in its pouch, you can carry the pouch on you to keep it close to you. You can also leave a piece of suggie's blanket with your scent on it in the cage because gliders bond by scent.

The more time you spend with your glider, the better the bonding process will be. To develop a strong bond between you and your glider, make sure you play with your glider and letting it climb on you and around a glider-proofed room.
Each and every suggie has their own individual personality. They will respond in their own ways when it comes to bonding.
Bonding with your glider is based on the purest form of trust. Don't do anything to break the trust or your suggie may never trust you.
You can't trick a suggie as they are quite smart and will test you from time to time.
Remember, NEVER yell at or smack your glider.
NEVER tap it for biting as this is an exotic creature that tasts things and the thing we consider a "bite" from them is actually them tasting what's near their face.
If your glider is a constant taster, what you can do is you can have apple sauce, some honey or flavored yogurt near and have it on your finger tip and your glider will learn to taste the yummy treat that you offer and will learn to look forward to seeing you everyday.
But keep the apple sauce, honey or yogurt handy for any glider that you are starting to bond with .
Believe me, bonding with sugar glider is a very rewarding experience.
The sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps) is a small arboreal marsupial that is found in the forests of Australia, as well as in Tasmania, New Guinea, and the neighboring islands of Indonesia. This little creature is a member of the same order that includes kangaroos, opossums, wombats and Tasmanian devils!
The sugar glider's head and body measures five to six inches with a bushy tail of equal length. The males are slightly larger. Like most marsupials, the female has a pouch in which the baby glider(s) are carried. One to two joeys is the norm.
In the wilds of their native habitat, the sugar gliders are tree dwelling creatures, often living in groups of 15 to 30. They are active by night when they hunt for insects and small vertebrates and feed on the sweet sap of certain species of eucalyptus, acacia and gum trees. Sugar gliders are so named for their preference for sweet foods and their ability to glide through the air like a flying squirrel.
To identify each other they rely more heavily on scent. Each glider has its own specific scent signature that other members of the group recognize. Males have a scent gland on their head which looks like a little diamond shaped bald spot in the middle of their forehead. There is another gland between their front legs on their chest. Females have scent glands near the genital area and pouch.
The sugar glider makes a fascinating and unique pet which becomes extremely friendly when provided daily interaction with humans. They bond rather quickly and learn to trust their human family.
The charming and loveable little sugar glider is fast becoming a popular household pet in North America. Indeed, they have many of the characteristics of the perfect pet in that they are clean, personable, attractive and relatively quiet. Their housing and dietary requirements are rather easy to cater to. They are hardy and don't have a lot of health problems and can live 10 to 15 years with the proper care and love.
