Shoulder Pouches are the ideal place to keep your small camera or phone in reach for taking quick photos. The main compartment of the shoulder pouches are a good size for your wallet, car keys, map, headlamp, mittens, sunglasses, candy bars, pack towel, GPS, or any other items you would like to have within easy reach. The pouches carry comfortably on your shoulder, and you will hardly notice them there.

The small exterior mesh pocket can be used to store your small items like lip balm, emergency whistle, or a compass.

  • Choose from 3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric or black 4.85 oz/sqyd Gridstop fabric to match your backpack.  

  • These will fit on almost any pack. Two elastic bands hold the pouch securely to your shoulder straps. It is clipped at the top to prevent it from sliding up or down.  

  • Bellowed design, and the elastic on the front mesh keeps the pouch snug with almost no shaking even when running or jumping.  

  • 60 cubic inch main compartment is a good size for items such as a camera. A .5L bottle is also a nice fit and can help counterbalance your pack.   

  • The mesh front pocket is handy for tucking small items.  

  • Draw cord opening is quick and easy for getting at your items.  

  • The pouches are symmetrical, and can go on either side.  

  • Stays dry in all but heavy rain. Line it with a zip lock to protect electronics.

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

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.

I put my go pro on a tripod in here. No need for a mount. I also put smaller water bottles in it. I like putting my battery in it and keeping the weight off my back. I put a tin with goodies in the front pocket with a lighter and mini flashlight. I can take it off and put it on my day pack seconds. I like the open draw string style of this better than the zipper version. Zpacks should send me another one for my wife because it would make the world a better place.

Bottle holder & Shoulder Pouch

These items are the nicest that I have seen to date. For the first time ever, I can actually get to my water without taking off my pack. The elastic loop keeps it from falling out. I keep my Garman safely only the pouch. I never have to worry about it. Both are fantastic!

Shoulder Pouches

I got 2 pouches with my ZPack Nero pack and found them to be easy to install - unlike some other pouch products I've tried, these are designed to slip over shoulder straps. They're very useful for holding small items (sunscreen, lip balm) in their mesh fronts and larger items (GPS, small camera) inside. I found myself switching them back and forth between the Nero and another pack I use. So I just bought a second pair of these very useful pouches for that pack.

I'm just back from morrocco where I was stuck for a week waiting for a flight. Since then, I'm confined home and tried your nero indoor. Looks nice so far. I'm longing to try it for real. Hue jb
