This four-in-one backpack accessory can be carried four ways:
  1. Clip it to the top of your pack as a lid / brain.
  2. Hang it from your shoulder straps as a chest pack for a large camera, or for carrying water to counterbalance your backpack. Two 1 Quart /  946 ml Powerade bottles or Nalgene bottles are a perfect fit.
  3. Clip the detachable belt to the center attachments and carry it as a Fanny Pack / Belt Pack. Carry a one quart bottle plus a small jacket and snacks at your waist for day hikes.
  4. Clip the detachable belt to the top corners and carry it over your shoulder as a satchel. Good for hauling few liters of water back to camp from a water source, or for carrying accessories when traveling or around town.

John Abela's Multi-Pack Review.
"The Zpacks Multi-Pack is one of those pieces of gear I treasure. Simple to use and effective for what I want it to do. It is a piece of equipment I donít have to think about. It just works." -Read the Zpacks Multi-pack review at
"I started using the multi-pack and I just wanted to let you know I love it. Here is a Photo of our hike last week in Tucson, Arizona. I can carry my camera in the front and other stuff. I thought you would like to see I'm a happy Zpacker so far :). Thanks for making great light products" -Raquel
"Just would like to let you know that I got a 4 in 1 multi-pack and I love it. Being a photographer I made a Multi-Pack Review from a photographers point of view." -Pedro K.
"I have just completed a Colorado Trail thru-hike. The multi-pack was super useful. It held guidebook, phone, camera, snacks, glasses etc etc. Having them on my chest meant they were easy to access and did not interfere with my pack's hip-belt as they would have if they had been distributed in my shorts pockets. Taking the pack on and off did take a little longer with the extra straps to clip on, but a very minor negative to the huge positive of having the pack in the first place. I highly recommend it." -Jon S.
"I have just ordered my second multipack. The first one finally wore out from use. I wear it around my waist and it holds all my snacks for the day, guidebook, phone, etc. I do not have pockets on the waist belt of my Arc Zip pack and the multipack serves the same way they would. An additional plus for me has been I do not get food on or in my pack and have never been bothered with mice chewing my pack. I used my old multipack for three years and a thru hike of the AT. So pleased with this product." -Orval P.
"The Multi-Pack allowed me to keep moving on my first thru-hike. I kept my snacks for the day in it, phone, maps, gloves, hat, and it was also my ditty bag. I didn't need to stop and access my backpack which kept me on schedule. The Multi-Pack is easy to use and stays secure when moving. I also like that I can use it as a belt pack or satchel for day hikes." -Ben W.
