V Top Strap
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.

V Top Strap
Great product, light weight, strong and practical - very happy with it :)
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.
Worked perfect for my trip to the Adirondacks
The strap held my bear canister very well for my trip to the Adirondacks where a bear canister was required. Great product.
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.

The strap construction is great and removable if not needed. I have added a V strap to both my packs Arc Air and Arc Blast for bear canister or overflow. Mostly use for winter trips or longer trips, I tend to carry more gear. The last thing I want to do is get to camp and find a tent or pad gone. The V strap holds items secure to the pack for a very small weight penalty and cost. Great add on.
