    Default Chest Pouch

    I'm looking for recommendations for an after-market chest pouch that I can attach to my pack straps and use it to carry just food. Aside from the zpacks 4 in 1.

    Seek outside has a chest pouch. Or top lid. Your choice. Designed with their packs in mind, but can be adapted to other packs.

    Integrates wonderfully w my packs and has great application by itself.

    Curious; why is not the ZPacks product your first choice?

    I have several ZPacks products and have almost always found them well designed and well constructed. The one time I had a quality issue with a ZPacks product, it was resolved quickly and satisfactorily.

    If you already have a Katadyn water filter but are using a Sawyer or some other type, its storage pouch works well.

    I've one of these as well, though a much older style, worked for me...I also use a fanny pack around the waist up front.

    I much preferred the Ribz Front Pack compared to the Zpacks front pack. I found the Zpacks front pack a pain to constantly have to clip and unclip and when putting my pack on, it was one more thing swinging around to have to contend with.

    @Flounder940 - Did you use 4 straps or two in securing your Zpaks front pack? In Zpaks demo video, Will Wood only attaches the top two. As such I removed the bottom two with a big pair of scissors. Subsequently I learned that it might have been better to use all four. Zpaks said it shouldn't be an issue.

    Thanks - shall see how it goes with only two. I bought it for my rain jacket and pants for convenience sake which in total weigh about 10 ounces. I think if it was heavier it would swing about like crazy
