    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.

Very useful, love the topo fabric!

Haven’t used a hip pouch in a while but I was drawn to make this one! I love the topo fabric! The pouch was easy to make, is a great size and the back “pocket” fits my iPhone 11 Pro Max perfectly! I actually made two - one as a hip pouch, one modified to be a wrist clutch with some added internal pockets.

Thanks for your review Karen! We love to know when people take our kits and make them work better for their project, it's what making your own gear is all about!

A lot of fun to make!

This kit was a lot of fun to make and I learned a lot about working with this type of fabric. I am a novice at the sewing machine and was intimidated about sewing a zipper. No More! RSBTR is awesome!

Thanks for the review Gwynn! Making your own gear is addicting. We look forward to helping you with future projects. Enjoy!
