The strap held my bear canister very well for my trip to the Adirondacks where a bear canister was required. Great product.

Our V Top Strap adds additional stability when you’re carrying heavier items on the top of your backpack. It is a little bit more secure than the standard, single top strap.

It can be used to carry a bear canister so long as the canister can squish into your gear as shown. Alternatively, a canister can also be carried standing vertically inside the pack.

The V Top Strap is modular and can be added or removed from your pack as necessary. Our normal, single top strap is also included when you add this option.

These Top straps are not compatible with the Nero backpack.  If you need a V Top Strap for your Nero, you'll can purchase one specifically designed to work with one here.

Holds everything

I am really glad that I upgraded to the V Top Strap. It has a lot of length and can old a lot of different things securely like shoes, ski boots, and of course bear canisters.

V strap secures bear cannister on my Arc Haul pack

As a backpacker, I'm a fan of Zpacks gear for its ultra light weight, functionality, and durability. I own Zpacks tents (Duplex and Triplex), quilts (10 and 30 F rated), and pack (Arc-haul 62 liter). Just back from a week long trip on the AT. I used V strap on my Arc-haul pack to secure a bear cannister on top. Its functional and durable.
