  • Each pouch has about 1 full liter of volume.

  • These have taped seams, and a water resistant zipper to keep most water out. You may still want to line it with a zip lock as a precaution for electronics.

  • The default black 3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric can withstand the abuse of being dragged on the ground each time you set your pack down.  Black 4.8 oz/sqyd Gridstop fabric is also a heavier duty option.

  • These clip to your pack's belt at each side for a secure hold. The center of the pouch is held steady by a band of elastic. These are made to fit our backpacks, but they will fit any belts which have a daisy chain or attachment points to clip them.

  • The pouches are symmetrical and can be attached to the left or right side of your belt.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

  • Made in the USA.

Dimensions: About 6" wide, by 2.25" deep, by 5" tall (15cm wide x 5.7cm deep x 13 cm tall).

3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric Hybrid

Dyneema® Composite Fabric is composed of high strength Dyneema® fiber laminated inside a polyester membrane. It is inherently waterproof and does not require any coatings or DWR treatment. Dyneema® Composite Fabric has very high tensile strength for its weight and does not stretch.

This hybrid version is made from 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric on the inside, with an extra layer of protective 50 denier polyester on the outside. The outer layer gives it more strength and abrasion resistance, prevents fraying, and gives it a nice solid color. 

Tensile Strength:
 245 lb/in (2150 N/5cm)

Puncture Strength: 
7.3 lb (32 N)

Water Resistance:
 >20,000 mmH₂O

Made in the USA.

4.85 oz/sqyd Gridstop Fabric

This popular backpack material is a little stronger against abrasion. It has a grid of white High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) threads for exceptional tear strength, as well as a diagonal woven ripstop. The fabric has a waterproof urethane coating on the inside. This high-quality fabric has a finished weight including the waterproof coating of 4.85 oz/sqyd (165 g/m²).

 4.85 oz/sqyd (165 g/m²)

Water Resistance:
 >20,000 mmH₂O

Made in Japan.

Our backpack's padded belt is about 4" (10 cm) tall by 3/8" (1 cm) thick. The elastic on the back of these pouches is sized just right for our padded belts. If your pack's belt padding is too big, you don't have to use the elastic. Clip the sides in place and use a safety pin at the center if desired to keep it snug.

If your backpack has a webbing belt, our Belt Pouches with Pads are made to slide on to a 1" (1.5 cm) or smaller webbing belt.

Plenty of far, so good.

Used for the first time this past weekend and loved them. As I’m moving into a UL pack from burly pack, I was nervous about room. Bought the ArcHaul 62L for most of my North East trips. The pockets hold a ton of gear and I bought the two pack, worth it. Not having a top lid now was easily solved with these and the exterior pockets. In fact, I under used them this past wkd but days are getting colder. To open, I left the two zips at back top, held the back zip If needed and used the opposite hand to open forward. Closing being easier. I have the ripstop and maybe the Dyneema is less flimsy for this? No biggie as the benefits far outweighed the zips, and expected as they are so light.

Excellent pocket, one wish

I love all my ZPacks products. This item is no different. I do wish, however, that it connected from top edge so I could zip it up one handed. As is, I have to hold back end to provide tension/stability to pull zipper forward. While using trekking poles, that’s a bit of a pain. Perhaps there’s something I don’t know?

10 Day Hike

The 62 Arc Haul. My overall experience was very satisfying. The key to my satisfaction was the split hip belt straps which secured the top portion of the hip pad firmly over my iliac crest and the bottom firmly to my hips. I am usually feeling the hip belt slide down my hips; I can never secure it firmly enough no matter the brand.

Perfect for what I needed it for!

I received my order faster than expected and with the current postal system, that made me very happy! It was exactly what ordered, no damage or anything. It is very light and exactly as described. I am a happy customer, thank you.
