Zpacks Ultralight Trowel
1 oz / 23 g
What an incredibly handy little thing! I’m one of those folks that hate hydration reservoirs inside my pack. I needed a handy way to attach a bottle to my pack’s shoulder strap and this is it. It holds bottles securely and allows easy access. Genius!
– John S., ★★★★★
Tired of bending over backwards to reach your water bottles? Our Aquaclip Kit allows you to to clip a water bottle to your backpack’s shoulder straps or belt so you have it easily accessible up front. It will fit any small water bottle with a standard size neck. The bottle can be popped in and out easily on the go. We find that it carries the weight of a 500 ml (16.9 fl oz) bottle well.
This clip is not designed to carry heavier water bottles. If you're looking to carry a larger bottle, like the 1L SmartWater bottle, we recommend our Water Bottle Sleeve instead.
The Zpacks kit includes one AquaClip, two One-Wrap® Velcro bands for securing it to the daisy chain on your shoulder straps, and a rubber end cap so that the clip cannot slide out of the velcro.
