Water Bottle Sleeves are a great way to keep your water easily accessible while also counter-balancing your backpack. Designed to fit 1L "Smartwater" bottles and similar, these sleeves will attach to the shoulder straps on just about any backpack.

  • Constructed from 3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric Hybrid and durable 3.5 oz/sqyd mesh.

  • These will fit on almost any backpack. Two elastic straps and two loops with toggles attach the Water Bottle Sleeve securely to your strap's daisy chain.

  • The mesh compartment was specifically designed to carry the most common tall skinny 1L bottles, which measures 2.75" diameter by 11.5" tall including the cap (7 cm x 29 cm). Similar sized bottles will also work.

  • The collar features rigid plastic allowing you to easily remove or replace the water bottle with one hand and no fuss.

  • Elastic at the top of the holder can be wrapped around the neck of the bottle to prevent it from sliding out when bending over.

  • 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.

Size: About 3" diameter x 9" tall (8 cm x 23 cm)

Volume: 64 cubic inches (1.1 liter)

3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric Hybrid

Dyneema® Composite Fabric is composed of high strength Dyneema® fiber laminated inside a polyester membrane. It is inherently waterproof and does not require any coatings or DWR treatment. Dyneema® Composite Fabric has very high tensile strength for its weight and does not stretch.

This hybrid version is made from 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric on the inside, with an extra layer of protective 50 denier polyester on the outside. The outer layer gives it more strength and abrasion resistance, prevents fraying, and gives it a nice solid color. 
Tensile Strength:
 245 lb/in (2150 N/5cm)

Puncture Strength: 
7.3 lb (32 N)

Water Resistance:
 >20,000 mmH₂O

Made in the USA.

3.5 oz/sqyd Mesh

This is the mesh that we use on our backpack's center pockets. It is relatively light weight for mesh, while being difficult to tear. It can withstand getting caught on branches and other typical abrasion that backpacks are subjected to. The hole size is a about 4 mm (a little over 1/8"). 

 3.5 oz/sqyd (119 g/m²)

Perfect water bottle sleeve

With the stiff collar opening on the sleeve it is super easy to remove my water bottle one handed and while walking. Sleeve is amazingly light weight yet sturdy. I expect it to outlast another long distance hike. I bought 2 of these to replace my twice as heavy old ones. Very pleased. Worth every penny. Thanks Z-Packs!

Practical but not perfect

I am impressed at how well and seemingly durable they have made this water bottle sleeve. It is quite useful to me since I otherwise cannot reach the water bottles with my backpack. My only complaint would be that the bottle tilts towards me when I’m hiking and occasionally will touch my face.

Great addition

Just spent the week on the AT with my water bottle sleeve and it was a fabulous addition to my gear! With the quick addition of a pvc straw I didn’t ’t have to stop to sip on water. It’s a keeper for me!
