  • Clip it to the top of your pack as a lid / brain.

  • Clip the detachable belt to the center attachments and carry it as a Fanny Pack / Belt Pack. Carry a one quart bottle plus a small jacket and snacks at your waist for day hikes.

  • Clip the detachable belt to the top corners and carry it over your shoulder as a satchel. Good for hauling few liters of water back to camp from a water source, or for carrying accessories when traveling or around town.

Multi-Pack Review - Love it!

Bought to use with the Arc Air pack I bought along with it. I've only had it a short time but have done 4 day/3 night trips with it attached to both my Arc Air and my older Nero. Love it! Carry phone and shacks and all other close at hand ideas with easy and comfort. Love ZPACKS!!!

Lovin it

The bag can carry ton of stuffs you need to grab quickly as you hike. Can work with any back pack as long as it has a shoulder harnesses. Great product and workmanship. Will definitely try out other zpack products soon.

I’ve always used a chest pack add on. It keeps often used items handy, plus it improves your center of gravity by moving weight from your back pack to your chest pack. I try to put heavy dense items like my knife and tools, monocular, flashlights, fire kit, tent stakes, maps, compass, am/fm/weather radio, reading glasses, a couple of millennium bars, and so on. The Multi-Pack is plenty big enough and is much lighter than my old nylon chest pack. It attached easily to my Zpacks pack and also my Golite pack. Great product. A nice improvement would be to have two compartments to help organize the contents, if it could be done with a small weight increase.

Love the zpacks multipack

This is my second. It is larger than its predecessor, but still works well as a waist pack (which is the only use I personally make of it.) It is lightweight, comfortable and roomy. My only sadness is how quickly the zippers cease to work. I miss the old days when Zpacks was a tiny one-man show and would repair stuff for free - but I worried then that he would never make a living with that business model! So I am glad zpacks is doing what it needs to in order to survive and thrive. All their products are terrific.
