V Top Strap
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.

The strap construction is great and removable if not needed. I have added a V strap to both my packs Arc Air and Arc Blast for bear canister or overflow. Mostly use for winter trips or longer trips, I tend to carry more gear. The last thing I want to do is get to camp and find a tent or pad gone. The V strap holds items secure to the pack for a very small weight penalty and cost. Great add on.
Great so far, but have yet to use it with a bear canister, the expected use.
Great. We bought two Arc Haul Zip packs and some accessories. Love all of the gear. Thanks
Worked just as I wanted it to.
I typically pack on the higher weight end of the ArcBlast pack limit so I like to carry my tent on the outside and on top for quick set up in camp. I replaced the single strap with the V top strap and it worked great stabilizing my tent on top.
