Good product

I was very satisfied with this purchase. I bought the Front Utility Pack to carry a large camera. My camera fit nicely in the pack. See the product video on the website if you have questions about the size of camera that can be stored in the pack. However, after my last hike I decided to "save the weight" by ditching the bulky camera in favor of my iPhone camera. I will continue to use this pack to carry small items that I want to keep readily available: my cellphone, a map, and snacks. I like the fact that the buckles are tucked inside a protective sleeve. I am not sure the reason for that design, but the sleeve does protect against accidental unbucklings. The pack can be buckled with a strap that comes with the pack or can be buckled directly to a backpack's hip belt. I carried the pack using the included strap rather attaching to my pack's hip belt so I could carry my camera after I set down the back pack. The pack looks like it would be waterproof, although Zpacks appropriately cautions that no pack is really 100% waterproof. This is a well-designed product, superior to anything I came across.

Greatest pack ever!

I hiked/walked 800 km (500 miles) of El Camino in Spain from France to Santiago de Compostela, and the Z Pack bag was my most important tool besides my hiking poles and my shoes. I honestly could not have done the trip without my Z pack bum bag.

The FUPA is a well made pouch and satchel typical of Zpacks quality. Personally I find the volume a little small for most of my needs, though I might find other needs in the future.

Great product

I use this product attached to my backpack while hiking, I've never used it in standalone mode. It big enough to keep all the stuff I directly need without removing my backpack: gloves, snacks, sunscreen, ... It's waterproof (if you keep the zip closed properly) and seems durable. It even makes holding the backpack more comfortable. I'm very satisfyed with this purchase.
