The Umbrella Holster allows you to keep your hands free while protecting yourself from the rain and sun with an ultralight umbrella. It easily attaches to the daisy chain on most backpack's straps. In calm weather you can keep both hands on your trekking poles, while in strong wind or driving rain you can rest one hand on the umbrella to control the angle.
The Umbrella Holster consists of a clip and an adjustable shock cord loop that attaches to your shoulder strap.
Attach the buckle above the sternum strap on your strap's daisy chain and then attach the shock cord loop at the bottom of the daisy chain.
Insert your umbrella into the clip and then cinch the shock cord tight around the umbrella’s handle.
Perfect for use with our Lotus UL Umbrella.

Wonderful! Love my new purchase!
I thought I could do without this clip system and just secure the umbrella to my pack with ties. Easier said than done. This simple shaft clip secutely attaches to the webbing on my shoulder strap and the adjustable tie strap works well to hold the umbrella in place. With hands free, I can video my hikes or use my phone under the protection of the umbrella. I'm also free to use my hiking poles. It's easy to quickly deploy and secure the umbrella and just as quick to remove it. This is a must have device for hiking in the rain with an umbrella. -KrizAkoni (AlphaGal Hikes)
It weighs 0.1 ounce! It takes 30 seconds to install on a shoulder strap. And, it does something nothing else will do -- it holds an umbrella above your head while you hike. If you own a hiking umbrella, even if you don't use it that often, why do you not have one of these on your pack? I do and I'm obviously pretty stoked about it. Thanks Zpacks!
