Wanna add storage or a bit of DIY flair to your pack? Meet the Hip Belt Pouch Kit. These zippered, water-resistant pouches are designed to be an easy to make, modular storage option for any backpack with a hip belt.
Quickly add/remove this pouch to any existing pack by threading the hip belt through the elastic loops on the backside of the pouch.
Comes with all the pre-packaged components you'll need to make one finished Hip Belt Pouch with no wasted materials. We've even laser cut the fabric to size, so you can open the box and start sewing right away. Kit includes:
Material (*choose fabric/color above) 9" x 14" laser cut fabric blank, ready to sew

If you've never built a zippered pouch before, or if you just need a refresher, watch this video first. Many thanks to PapaSmurf at Dream Hammock for putting this DIY video together!
IMPORTANT - The Hip Belt Pouch Kit uses water resistant Uretek zipper instead of standard coil. As such, the teeth should be FACE DOWN when attaching coil to fabric (video uses standard coil and calls for teeth to be face up). This will ensure the water-resistant, coated side of the Uretek zipper ends up on the outside of your Hip Belt Pouch.

I ordered two of these, for my newest pack. You get everything you need in a little plastic bag--except the sewing machine. The directions are online and easy to follow. My hip belts came out looking like the picture, and they work fine.
Soon enough we will include a sewing machine with purchase too! ok.. maybe that is beyond our limits. :) Thank you for taking the time to leave a review Beth!
