    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.

Hip Belt Pouch Kit

Great product and a fun project

I bought two of these kits and have completed one so far. I found that some of the zipper instructions were a little vague, but I was able to find a couple great videos of people putting together the ZPP kit where the process of sewing on the zipper was much better described than the video referenced in the instructions.

After using this pouch on my first backpacking trip, I found that pouch really likes to migrate. It can also fall off the hip belt when I first unclip the belt. I used a micro-carabiner to connect one of the zipper pulls to a loop on my hip belt. My plan for my second kit is to add small loops of Grosgrain ribbon to the sides of the pouch just like the ZPP kit has. This little customization will allow me to use a pair of micro-biners to keep the pouch in place on my belt.

Great kit

I've made two of these now. It's a great kit and you end up learning sewing skills and having a nice project

Confidence Builder

Being newer to sewing, I have been looking to build some more confidence in different styles of bags. This one is a good start. Instructions to me were a bit confusing, but after some time and drawing out the template I was able to accomplish this. Really fun project, looking forward to expand and make one a little bigger myself. Top quality material as usual!

I/4” Seam Allowance For The Zipper. Really?

Love the colour I chose, the thread matches beautifully. It arrived on time in a neat little ziplock. I haven't sewn it up yet. I have a few projects ahead if it. RBR Website Instructions regarding the 1/4” seam allowance for the zipper are so small I could barely read the fine print, even with my reading glasses, and I can't pinch the screen to make it bigger. Is 1/4” more on the zipper seam allowance too much to ask? Fix this and I’d give you 4 stars. Include a paper template and I’d bump it up to 5 stars. Despite this shortcoming, I am going to enjoy using the kit on my backpacking trips, when completed. Thank you.
