Shoulder Pouches are the ideal place to keep your small camera or phone in reach for taking quick photos. The main compartment of the shoulder pouches are a good size for your wallet, car keys, map, headlamp, mittens, sunglasses, candy bars, pack towel, GPS, or any other items you would like to have within easy reach. The pouches carry comfortably on your shoulder, and you will hardly notice them there.

The small exterior mesh pocket can be used to store your small items like lip balm, emergency whistle, or a compass.

  • Choose from 3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric or black 4.85 oz/sqyd Gridstop fabric to match your backpack.  

  • These will fit on almost any pack. Two elastic bands hold the pouch securely to your shoulder straps. It is clipped at the top to prevent it from sliding up or down.  

  • Bellowed design, and the elastic on the front mesh keeps the pouch snug with almost no shaking even when running or jumping.  

  • 60 cubic inch main compartment is a good size for items such as a camera. A .5L bottle is also a nice fit and can help counterbalance your pack.   

  • The mesh front pocket is handy for tucking small items.  

  • Draw cord opening is quick and easy for getting at your items.  

  • The pouches are symmetrical, and can go on either side.

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.

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 is 4.85 oz/sqyd (165 g/m²).

No regret in spite of the customs duties and VAT to France

I am happy with my new backpack. It takes the place of an older Osprey Levity. After two 3-days hikes I find that it allows a better and more stable balance of the weight between the hips and the shoulders : No more painful clavicles at the end of a long walking day. The width of the belt and of the shoulder straps makes the Arc Blast very comfortable in spite of an astonishing low empty weight. I have just to get used to a loading adapted to the absence of a top lid pouch.

Almost perfect

Love the mesh pocket. Super lite. I have Samsung s8+ with minimal protective case and it fits ok but is a touch short to hold it in safely if I lean over.

Loving this

This little shoulder pouch is the lightweight pouch I was looking for. Living in the Netherlands with an passion for lightweight outdoor gear is hard, because there are Almost no brands who specify on products especially made for hikers. When we heard about zpacks, we had to try Some of their equipment and we are hooked. Everything fits in this shoulder pouch, from phones, to solar glasses, to snacks. It’s so handy! We will def buy again at zpacks (or maybe go to the us to see it ourselves). We will soon leave a review at our website : or at our Yt channel (hikaholics) / IG @hikaholics_dna
