Water Bottle Sleeves are a great way to keep your water easily accessible while also counter-balancing your backpack. Designed to fit 1L "Smartwater" bottles and similar, these sleeves will attach to the shoulder straps on just about any backpack.

  • Constructed from 2.92 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric Hybrid and durable 3.5 oz/sqyd mesh.

  • These will fit on almost any backpack. Two elastic straps and two loops with toggles attach the Water Bottle Sleeve securely to your strap's daisy chain.

  • The mesh compartment was specifically designed to carry the most common tall skinny 1L bottles, which measures 2.75" diameter by 11.5" tall including the cap (7 cm x 29 cm). Similar sized bottles will also work.

  • The collar features rigid plastic allowing you to easily remove or replace the water bottle with one hand and no fuss.

  • Elastic at the top of the holder can be wrapped around the neck of the bottle to prevent it from sliding out when bending over.

  • 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.

Size: About 3" diameter x 9" tall (8 cm x 23 cm)

Volume: 64 cubic inches (1.1 liter)

2.92 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 1.43 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.

3.5 oz/sqyd Mesh

This is the mesh that we use on our backpack's center pockets. It is relatively light weight for mesh, while being difficult to tear. It can withstand getting caught on branches and other typical abrasion that backpacks are subjected to. The hole size is a about 4 mm (a little over 1/8"). 

 3.5 oz/sqyd (119 g/m²)

Killer design

I love the plastic ring that holds it open

Love how it is the perfect size for any size drink/container. The best feature in my opinion is the strap that can stretch to fit any container and hold it in from falling out while on trail.

Good experience with the Water Bottle Sleeve

Hi Zpacks, I haven't had the chance to use the water bottle sleeve much, but I used it this weekend on a hike through NYC with our Boy Scout Troop and the water bottle sleeve was excellent. I originally had it fit to my backpack anticipating my next hike in the woods, but switched it over easily to my day pack and it was so nice not having to fiddle around for a water bottle. It was easy to access and while walking, I barely knew it was there. Yours in Scouting, Mike P.S. The water bottle sleeve is nice, but so far the best product I have purchased from ZPacks is my rain kilt. Not to say I won't like the water bottle sleeve as much, but every time I have used my rain kilt, I think about how much nicer it is than the rain pants I used to wear..

Love, Love, LOVE this water bottle holder. I don't like reaching back so having this handy and right on my shoulder is fab!
