The DXG Rucksack Hip Belt Pockets are lightweight yet durable rucksack accessories that can be easily attached to your pack, giving you quick and easy access to your cash, keys etc.
Tread Lite Gear says:
Sold in pairs. Waterproof YKK zips with dual sliders and dyneema pulls. Rear elasticated straps and slik clips each end to anchor on hip belt. You will need some form of anchor point on the hip belt you are attaching to. As with all manufacturers of external pockets Tread Lite Gear recommend moisture sensitive items are protected with an additional ziplock bag.
Tread Lite Gear is one of those special brands that push the boundaries of lightweight gear. The DXG Rucksack Hip Belt Pockets are made from tough Dyneema X Grid fabric with dual slider water resistant zips. When the zips come together you will notice there's a very small gap in between, so it's probably best to line the pocket with a ziplock bag if you intend on putting a phone or other moisture sensitive items inside to prevent any damage.
It's easy to attach to your rucksack hip belt and it has little fabric loops that you can hold to keep it in place as you pull the zips.
