The belt pouches on Zpacks are one of the many selling points for their products. They are roomy, easy to access and are superior to that offered on any other pack I've used!

Be prepared for whatever the trail may bring by keeping your essentials close in hand with our belt pouches. These pouches clip securely to a padded belt, like on our Arc backpacks. There is plenty of space forheadlamp, folded maps, snacks, hat and gloves, gadgets, you name it.

If your backpack has a webbing belt, try Belt Pouches with Pads.

  • Each pouch has about 1 full liter of volume.

  • The Ultra 200 and Hybrid DCF versions have taped seams. All versions have a water resistant zipper to keep most water out. You may still want to line it with a zip lock as a precaution for electronics.

  • The zipper is reinforced with rigid material allowing it to be operated with one hand.

  • The fabric can withstand the abuse of being dragged on the ground each time you set your pack down.

  • These clip to your pack's belt at each side with Loop Toggles for a secure hold. The center of the pouch is held steady by a band of elastic. These are made to fit our backpacks. They may also fit other backpack belts which have a daisy chain or attachment points to clip them.

  • The pouches are symmetrical and can be attached to the left or right side of your belt.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

  • Made in the USA.

Dimensions: About 6" wide, by 2.25" deep, by 5" tall (15cm wide x 5.7cm deep x 13 cm tall).

Volume: About 60 cubic inches (1 Liter)

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.

Our Repair Tape and Adhesive products stick extremely well to the interior of this fabric.

3.7 oz/sqyd 100D ROBIC®

ROBIC® nylon has very high tensile strength for its weight. The material features a fully waterproof polyurethane coating. The exterior is treated with a C6 durable water repellent. This material is used for the main body of the Arc Air.

Weight: 3.7 oz/sqyd (125 g/m²)


Our backpack's padded belt is about 4" (10 cm) tall by 3/8" (1 cm) thick. The elastic on the back of these pouches is sized just right for our padded belts. If your pack's belt padding is too big, you don't have to use the elastic. Clip the sides in place and use a safety pin at the center if desired to keep it snug.

If your backpack has a webbing belt, our Belt Pouches with Pads are made to slide on to a 1" (1.5 cm) or smaller webbing belt.

Ultra-light / Keeps Items Within Reach

I've used the Zpacks belt pouch for quite some time now on a multi-day pack and recently purchased an additional pouch for my Nero daypack. The Zpacks belt pouch on my multi-day pack has been in use for 2 years and has held up well, keeping frequently used items / snacks within reach during my treks. I highly recommend this pouch!

They have room for improvement

The elastic band is too thin and big so the pouches bounce uncomfortably. They need to get rid of the band and add a more rigid holding piece, either Velcro or something else. During the JMT I was always unconsciously touching them making sure they were still there. At the end, I gave up and put them inside my backpack, which defeated the purpose. Compromising security or safety for light weightiness is not a good choice.

Weak link to the belt

After using the Zpack ultra for about 7 days on the Colorado trail one of the pockets came loose after the seam of the rear attachement strap to the belt didn't hold anymore. The same happened to the second pocket a few days later! Conclusion: the seam that attach the strap to the pocket is too weak!!!

Keeps falling off hip belt

Pouch does not stay attatched to hip belt

Zpacks

Hello William, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that the pouch is not staying attached to the hip belt. Did the pouch come with loop toggles? (https://zpacks.com/pages/search-results-page?q=loop%20toggle) Please reach out to us at support@zpacks.com, and we will see what we can do to assist.
