Top Side Pocket
These pockets are perfect for a few bulky items that I like to bring on my trips. I highly recommend them!
Sometimes an adventure calls for a little extra space. Our modular Top Side Pockets allow you to carry extra gear (like your cooking pot or rain gear) on the outside of your pack while still being able to accommodate taller items (like trekking poles, an umbrella, or a fishing pole) behind the pockets.
Constructed with 3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric on the back, and durable, stretchy pocket mesh on the front.
Mesh allows you to easily see the contents, and to dry out wet items.
They are a good fit for a 1 Liter or smaller pot, a water filter, hat and gloves, our rain jacket and pants, or an inflatable sleeping pad.
Since these are not sewn to the pack you can still stand tall items like trekking poles, an umbrella, or a fishing pole behind the pockets.
The pockets can be taken off or added later.
All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

Just what the Trail Doctor ordered.....
Well......Although I have an ARC HAUL and love it, I bought a NERO and really love the pack. Then I bought the Titanium Caldera Cone because I had bought the .6L Evernew cookpot. So, with that nice set up I, OF COURSE needed the Top-Side-Pocket for the Nero and BAM........Perfect, just Perfect. So nice to NOT have to open the pack just to make some coffee or rehydrate a quick meal I keep in the Mesh front pocket. GREAT Piece of kit. I bought this one from the BARGAIN section and I looked it over and can NOT see any problem or changed stitch patterns.....Just wonderful this company. GREAT CUSTOMER service and ALL my queries and emails are answered with BLAZING SPEED. Thanks Derrick. PS. Bought the Dyneema stuff sack for the Evernew Cookpot at the same time and I am happier than a Hiker at the Northern Terminus. Trail Name: Heart Failure.
Top Side Pocket
Haven't had a chance to use it yet. But quality is awesome and can't wait to use it.
Top side pockets
I have these on both sides of my arch haul. One with rain gear & wind shirt. The other with cook pot, stove & fuel canister. Order shipped & arrived quickly
Great for quick access
Perfect for those first items you want to access when taking the pack off e.g. foam pad, trowel, water filter. The elastic at the top opening could be a bit tighter – or perhaps use a mechanism to adjust the tension and size of the opening. So far nothing has fallen out, but I'm anxious.
It works so well. It doesn't interfere with items strapped to the side because it floats and hence, allows items to slide underneath it.
