Overview of the CTUG Shoulder Strap Zipper Pocket
Eliminate unnecessary time rifling through your pack for those frequently-needed essentials with the CTUG Chest Strap Pocket. Easily mount it on any of your packs and stash your cell phone, GPS, snacks, sunglasses, or any other essentials to have it all within reach. Made with a water resistant zipper and waterproof X-Pac material, the Chest Strap Pocket protects your gear from the trail’s unpredictable weather.
We used to offer two sizes of this product but now only stock this NEW size. This new size is right in between our old standard and large sizes.
Lead time on Shoulder Strap Zipper Pocket is 1-3 days.
Stitched Seams - $30
Our stitched Pocket is not seam sealed but still offers some water resistance. Water can enter through the seams if submerged but they'll handle a splash of water or light rain no problem.
Two Construction Styles Available
Every stitch has the opportunity to leach water into a seam. Our bonded Pockets have no stitches, therefore no leaks. The small braid of a zipper is the sole reason we classify our bonded Pockets as VERY water resistant, not waterproof.
Sealed Seams - $40
Our proprietary method of sealing the seams on our Pockets leave the sealed version VERY water resistant. Our seams are not taped or glued but rather bonded together to create a permanent seal.
Colorful and Secure
We offer 12 different colors in each of our construction styles. You can pick and choose to fit YOUR style!
The zipper closure on our pockets will keep your gear safe and secure, no matter how rough the trail.
Lycra Mesh Pocket
The external lycra mesh pocket is perfect for any other items you want on hand - energy bars, sunglasses, or whatever else you need.
The Lycra 4 way stretch mesh is capable of expanding to fit many items while the 1/2" elastic rim at the top keeps the pocket tight to the Xpac.
The CTUG Shoulder Strap Zipper Pocket attaches to virtually any backpack’s shoulder strap. With our easy attachment system, you can be sure your shoulder strap accessory will sit securely on your pack. Depending on your backpack’s straps, our shoulder strap accessories can be attached in one of two ways:
Packs with daisy chain webbing running the length of pack’s straps will use both clips.
To attach to a strap’s daisy chain loops, open the S clips and attach to desired loops. Close clips to lock in place. Slide the extra webbing through the slider to create a tight fit.
Packs without daisy chain will use the webbing on the bottom of the strap that holds the ladder lock in place and the horizontal upper gear loop near the top of the strap.
To attach to a pack with a gear loop, open the bottom S clip and attach to the webbing loop at the bottom of the strap. Close the clip to lock it in place.
Unthread the upper webbing from the Pocket and set aside the clip. Now thread that webbing down through the upper gear loop on the pack, then back through slider on the Sleeve. Cinch tight for the perfect fit.
How to Open/Close S Clips
Opening and closing our clips can be challenging at first. The key is where you put the force of your fingers. Hold the clip firm in one hand and follow the force vectors in the diagrams.
See the video below for more details about attaching a Water Bottle Sleeve to your pack. Sleeve works best with tall/skinny bottle like the Smart Water bottle.
