Hipbelt Pocket - Olive Green

Belt pouches that attach to the PALS webbing on our hipbelts. Dual zipper sliders mean that you can use it on either hip. Available in all pack fabric colors to match your Seek Outside system. Perfect for holding snacks, cameras, bug dope and anything else you want close at hand on the trail.

 

5"x 5"x 3"

Weighs less then 3 oz.

Requires three channels of PALS webbing, can be used with our Small sized belt (with two channels of PALS webbing) but it will not be ideal.

    Hipbelt pocket and water bottle holder

    Posted by Chris B. on 9th Nov 2017

    I bought two of these. One for each side. I plan on using one for my Garmin and Phone/Camera and one for snacks. The size of these are just right. My other brand name pack has pockets built into the belt but are a funny shape and small size.
    I also plan to buy the water bottle holder. Even though the SO packs are easier to reach back for water than on other packs, I've found that when I am tired and holding trekking poles, I need to get at the water bottle with less of a reach around. I also like the idea of transferring water weight from the back of the pack to the lower front side.

    HipBelt Pocket Review

    Posted by Don Kerlee on 5th Oct 2017

    I am pleased with the product as far as it is precisely the product I need, but vi am having some difficulty attaching it to my hip belt. A simple instruction sheet would be nice.

    Good stuff

    Posted by Dylan on 5th Sep 2017

    Enough room for some snacks, SPOT, nun tabs, phone and so on. It fits super tight to the hip belt, no flopping, don't even know it's there. Very easy to open and close with 1 hand.

    Nice size pouches

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Jan 2017

    I really like the useful size of these Pouches. Nice for a small camera or GPS. Along with other instant access items. Only knock are the zippers are OVERKILL and noisy!! I actually covered every zipper on my pouches and unaweep pack with shrink tubing to quiet them a bit. Smaller zippers Definitely needed

    It must be hard to design hip belt pockets that function well.

    Posted by Ken Charles on 31st Oct 2016

    I'll give these 4.5 stars. They are working out better compared to the cuben Z-pack pockets I've been using.

    Size: I like the S.O. space saving shape; short and deeper than Z-pack. About the same volume it seems but the boxy shape of S.O. will fit a small bino that I can't get into the Z-pack. Not in the product description, there is a loop sewn inside for a dummy cord.

    Zippers: Closing Z-pack's water proof zippers is a two handed affair. S.O. oversized zipper moves easy, though sometimes the curved shape can be finicky closing up the last inch if the pocket isn't filled. I just push the slider home with my finger.

    Rain (should be a subset of zippers): Both S.O & Z-pack pockets are made with lightweight WP material. The Z-pack silicon zipper tape makes them essentially waterproof. A training hike in the heavy rain and squalls leading up to Hurricane Matthew (a good time to test a new rain jacket) showed me that the S.O. Zippers aren't a problem. The pocket zippers were tight while the Multi-Lid was a little damp under its zipper. Not bad considering how I was getting dumped on.

    Attachment: S.O. rock solid using PALS. Z-Packs a lightweight workable attachment. I hike with trekking poles and haven't a problem with the placement with either set of pockets.

    I really like the shape of these and would recommend them to anyone with PALS webbing looking for a lightweight pocket.

    Update to previous review

    Posted by Rod on 27th Oct 2016

    Though the zipper size still seems overkill, I found that if I keep each of the pulls in the middle of the pouch when closed, I can one hand each of them open and closed just fine. Do not know why I did not think of this initially. Thus, I am updating to 4 stars (I rarely give 5s out for anything).

    Belt pouch & interior accessories bags

    Posted by Ed Stover on 18th Oct 2016

    I've only been out with these once since they arrived and they seem to doing their jobs.

    These are great - glad Seek Outside decided to make them

    Posted by Kirk on 17th Oct 2016

    Much larger than regular pouches (at least the ones that come standard with many packs these days), and are easily removable even though they hold tight when attached.

    Belt pouch

    Posted by Rod on 15th Oct 2016

    While I like the pouch for its size and tight attachment, I find it cumbersome to completely open and close with one hand. Not sure if its the zipper size (which is overly large) or if its the shape of it that makes it unable to be completely closed with one hand. Also found that my hand brushed against it off and on while hiking and using poles.
