An overbuilt pocket-sized EDC travel zip pouch that’s as light as a feather but tougher than leather and a protector against bad weather.

I’ve been looking for something like this for years, before it even existed. A very small and minimal pouch that I can carry for a variety of uses but while as if I’m not carrying another bag. It also had to be rugged and waterproof.

Something that is lightweight but tough, simple but versatile and weatherproof but accessible is not easy to make or find utilizing all those features in one.

There are plenty of pouches and similar bags featuring 1 or 2 of those requirements but I never quite found the trifecta with much promise. That is until I discovered ZPacks and their line of cuben fiber packs.

Yes. “Cuben fiber”, not “carbon fiber”. A high-tech and expensive fabric firstly and mostly used in performance sailing for their incredible durability to weight ratio with better flex resilience than even kevlar. For all intents and purposes, it’s the “carbon fiber of fabric”.

- Cuben Fiber Pouch's Waterproof Zipper

ZPacks offer 8 different sizes. This is the Travel Zip Pouch. At 5″ x 7″ with 2 compartments, it weighs just an ounce (28 grams) and can be crumpled into a ball the size of a large grape (see below) for storage.

The dual zippers are YKK made and seals itself when closed to effectively shield against water and dirt, with the exception of prolonged submersion. Cuben fiber is completely waterproof but every internal seam is taped to further protect against liquid elements.

There are 4 pull tabs that can be used as zipper access handles or to run cordage (included) through them in any number of ways to carry or even wear.

The construction is tight, accurate, designed to endure adventures and are made in the United States.

In fact, the company’s founder is Joe Valesko, who’s had more adventures than I have. He designs and tests all their gear as well as actually making them.

As you can see, despite it’s small size, the versatility for everyday carry, travel and special use is enhanced by the cuben fiber material and minimalist design.

This will be on my person at all times for as long as I can see. It won’t even be used all the time but that’s the point, that I have such a specialized pouch for when I do need it with out the hassle of a thick and heavy one.

A pack-and-forget bag to whip out of my pocket in case of sudden rain to protect sensitive items or for:

    I was about to email you that you misspelled “cuben fiber” but then I read the review lol. It’s a neat little pouch and the material is very intriguing.

      Haha, same here. I thought he was saying it was a carbon fiber pouch, not cuben. Now I want one, even if just to see how it feels like.

    Just got my pouch from Zpacks ever your review. Cuben fiber is certainly a unique material. I can’t wait to use it and watch it wear in.
