Top Side Pocket
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.
Buy two and save! (Two for $45)
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.
Made in the USA.
Dimensions: ~6" wide x 3" deep x 8" tall

I am so glad I purchased this pocket. Right now I hike with 3 boys and a husband who all eat A LOT!! So I need multiple places to stash food. It's very sturdy and holds a good amount. I plan on using this pack during my AT hike and had seen where another hiker used it for storing his stove and cooking utensils so he didn't have to hunt for them when he got to camp. Super idea! I like how I can put it anywhere on the pack and I can move it whenever I want, it's not sewn in and permanent.
The side pockets attached easily to my Arc Zip as described by Zpacks. They hold my rain gear for easy accessibility. They are also easily protected by my pack cover. Nice to have a little extra pack space on my upcoming AT thru hike.
Great side pocket holds all the equipment that I needed great product very well designed and made. I would highly recommend this item
The Zpacks Top Side Pocket is the perfect size to put one’s kitchen out of the way, keeping it handy for quick meal deployment, and keeping the clunky, won’t fit anywhere else comfortably, meal pot out of the way. It also doubles for anything when rapid access may be required, like rain gear or a bag of chips, should one be so inclined.
