Alpinelite waist pack number 2

Oh dear! Velimir posted some pictures of a new slightly larger waist pack he had made with a front mesh pocket and a bungee cord for stowing a light jacket or a map case. I cracked and asked him to made me one. The depth has been increased from 5cm on my other waist pack to 7cm. Otherwise the dimensions are virtually the same, approximately 19cm x 10cm. Weight is 50g vs 35g. There’s a key clip inside. The mesh front pocket is stretch mesh with a snap closure and can fit an iPhone 6. The bungee cord is adjustable and will take a light windproof (photo is an Arc’teryx Squamish Hoody M) or waterproof. The webbing belt is slightly wider, 25mm vs 15mm. The material is Dyneema ripstop which is softer and less structured than the XPac of my original pack. The workmanship is first class. Very pleased.

If you are interested Velimir can be contacted at alpineliteworks(at)gmail(dot)com or through the trek-lite forum, (at)slovhike. You can see more of his work on Instagram (at)alpineliteworks.

Disclosure: I bought this waist pack with my own money. I have no business or financial relationship with Alpineliteworks.
