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 2.92 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.  

  • Stays dry in all but heavy rain. Line it with a zip lock to protect electronics.

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.

7.3 lb (32 N)

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).

Speedy customer service

When I reached out to the Zpacks customer services about my order of a new backpack, they got back with me very fast. I felt that they actually cared about me as a customer and were able to resolve my inquiry quickly. I took my new Arc Blast pack out last week and was very pleased with my first trip with it. Everyone else was complaining about weight, but not me :)

Good product

Using primarily the netting to hold my iPhone XS. Sometimes a bit difficult to slide the phone in place, but I don’t worry about it falling out either.

It’s hard to fit a iPhone plus with a otter box in the pocket, it sticks out the top, the bottom of the pocket should be round like the bottom of a backpack, Or just a little deeper, it works great for snacks and chapstick, items you need quick access to.
