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.

Simple and effective holster

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.

Much better than using just toggles

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.

One of my essential pieces of gear.

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!

Good so far

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.

Works great!

Had a little trouble with fitting it to my shoulder strap but that was just me being stubborn. Once in place I have used it twice on rainy hikes and it certainly does the job of holding the umbrella shaft securely in place. I suggest putting the handle of the umbrella inside the pouch Zpacks also sells for a phone. It is very secure when hiking and is oh so pleasant as rain is pouring down all around but you remain quite dry. Be sure to add an umbrella clip and kilt to your gear list for dry hiking.
