The strap held my bear canister very well for my trip to the Adirondacks where a bear canister was required. Great product.

Our V Top Strap adds additional stability when you’re carrying heavier items on the top of your backpack. It is a little bit more secure than the standard, single top strap.

It can be used to carry a bear canister so long as the canister can squish into your gear as shown. Alternatively, a canister can also be carried standing vertically inside the pack.

The V Top Strap is modular and can be added or removed from your pack as necessary. Our normal, single top strap is also included when you add this option.

These Top straps are not compatible with the Nero backpack.  If you need a V Top Strap for your Nero, you'll can purchase one specifically designed to work with one here.

What a Pack!

I purchased the Arc Haul 62L pack to replace an Osprey 70L. I used the Osprey on the AT in 2019 and 2021. I thought I needed the 70L to haul everything. After a friend of mine bought his Zpacks Arc Haul 62, I became interested mainly because of its lightweight and design. I found I could easily carry all my gear with plenty room to spare! I am using my new pack on the AT, again, in 2022 and can't wait to feel the difference after putting miles under my feet. I have tested my new pack and found it comfortable, light, easy to put on and take off; and am so pleased with it, I mentioned it to my hiking partner and she bought the same one, too!! Great product !

Used for cinching down other things

Initially purchased to strap the large bear canister to the top of my Arc Haul 57. Since the large canister could fit vertically inside my pack, I ended up using the strap for quick access to my 1/8 in. thick foam sitting and stretching pad and UL Xero sandals. Great for storing and cinching down items like that or a light jacket.

Vtop strap

The Vtop strap is working fine. I sometimes pack my duplex tent or other items up there. The double strap keeps things cinched down tight and secure. I thread the strap through my cup before I buckle it. so the cup is always handy. I think the vtop strap should be standard.
