The Umbrella Holster allows you to keep your hands free while protecting yourself from the rain and sun with an ultralight umbrella. It easily attaches to the daisy chain on most backpack's straps. In calm weather you can keep both hands on your trekking poles, while in strong wind or driving rain you can rest one hand on the umbrella to control the angle.
The Umbrella Holster consists of a clip and an adjustable shock cord loop that attaches to your shoulder strap.
Attach the buckle above the sternum strap on your strap's daisy chain and then attach the shock cord loop at the bottom of the daisy chain.
Insert your umbrella into the clip and then cinch the shock cord tight around the umbrella’s handle.
Perfect for use with our Lotus UL Umbrella.
- shoulder strap
They work awesome great idea and work well love being able to walk around in a tee shirt not sweating in a rain coat and stay dry
The clip is a little narrow for my straps but the overall design was good and I was able to get it in ok. It works.
I used to attach my Montbell umbrella with two toggles to my shoulder strap (Arc Blast Pack), and it would never stay put. Bought this clip and man what a difference! Bonus points because it works even when used under a shoulder pouch with an iphone and an inReach in it.
With me for 700 miles of the PCT. Heat, sun, rain, snow - could not have done it without my umbrella. The best customer service in the outdoor gear space, too!
The umbrella has worked well, I stayed dry while using it as well as most of my backpack. I’m a bit concerned with the toughness of the material. I scrubbed it against tree limbs several times and it left scars but no holes , time will tell. I am disappointed that it takes so long to receive Zpacks merchandise. I have several pieces of Zpacks equipment and it always takes a very long time to receive my order. I understand some lead time but even small things like an umbrella clip takes weeks. Zpacks does have quality gear though.
