  • Ultralight, durable Dyneema Composite Fabric
  • Quick zip opening
  • Water-resistant zipper, taped seams
  • Flat bottom – more volume, stands upright
  • Storage for phone, personal items, first aid, hiker ditty


Zipza Pouches organize your personal items and protect your devices while on the trail. Wallet, keys, phone, power bank, cables, plus all the small stuff you don’t want lost in your pack. These are great bags for hiker ditty, first aid kits, toiletries, repair kits, and survival kits.

They’re made of tough 1.43 oz/yd2 Dyneema Composite Fabric or DCF (formerly Cuben Fiber) which has thicker mylar outer layers and much higher Dyneema content to withstand the abuse of packing odd-shaped items. The material is semi-transparent to help you find stuff more easily. Super strong yet ultralight and see through too.

A quick zip opening with grab tab loops and a zipper pull makes for fast loading and secure storage. The zipper is water resistant and the side seams are taped to keep moisture out. The bottom is flat for greater volume, allowing the bag to stand upright. To attach the pouch to your pack, belt loop, or ridgeline, simply clip a micro carabiner through a side loop.


Chroma Zipper Pulls add a splash of color to personalize your pouch. 17 different colors and patterns allow you to truly customize your Zipza. To add one to your pouch, place an order for a Chroma, put a note in order comments to install it, and we’ll replace the standard black pull with your color choice. Pick a bright neon color to easily find the pull in the dark. If you're ordering two like-color pouches, choose different color pulls to quickly tell them apart. For various size pouches, different color/pattern pulls make it easier to identify them. Or use a color pull to identify the contents of the pouch.

Zipza Pouches help organize and protect your valuables. They’re highly water resistant and will keep your stuff dry in typical backpacking conditions but they’re not fully waterproof and should not be submerged.



Material: 1.43 oz/yd2 Dyneema Composite Fabric (DCF), CT5K.18

    Perfect hiking "junk drawer"

    Posted by Andi F on 17th Apr 2024

    I wasn't sure about the size when I purchased this bag. It's truly perfect bag for quelling all of the little things (a lot of little things) that seem to never have a proper place...I call it my junk drawer. I purchased the extra pulls (out of pure laziness) as I wanted to have 100% functionality from the moment I pulled it out of the shipping bag. I would absolutely recommend this bag.

    Best Pouches on the Market

    Posted by Evan on 30th Dec 2023

    I use Zipza pouches in multiple sizes to organize small gear on trail. They are by far the best ultralight pouch I’ve found. The stitching is impeccable, they hold a lot of gear due to the design, and they’ve proven to be surprisingly durable. Nothing else I’ve used compares, and nothing else in this category has a place in my pack since I switched. As usual, Litesmith provides the absolute best product.

    Well made

    Posted by Bruce on 14th Mar 2023

    Bought this as a travel first aid kit. Very well made with tight stitching simple study construction. I like that it is translucent.

    Above average

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Oct 2022

    I have several 'garage grown' Dyneema investments(shamefully expensive fabric). Litesmith is above the standard issue you purchase on Etsy or others. Being older, I remember the days of perfect stitching, attention to detail, and Litesmith scores all that and more.

    Perfect Ditty Bag

    Posted by Gringo on 2nd Jul 2022

    Once again LiteSmith doesn't disappoint. This size bag was perfect to keep my electronics and toiletries in one place minimizing weight and the need for two bags. Quality Service Delivery All spot on. I highly recommend this product.

    Killer pouches

    Posted by Jakob on 4th Apr 2022

    These are great little bags for organization in your pack. I bought 2 small ones for a diddy bag and first aid kit. They zip well, and I have little to no concerns about them ripping or leaking water in unless they were completely submerged. Seem very durable too.

    Awesome pouch!

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Sep 2021

    These pouches are great. Got the medium size (8x6) in white/clear. Only used it a few times so far but it holds my first aid kit and a handful of other "emergency" items (sawyer mini, small knife, paracord, lighter, compass, tape, etc). I feel like the zipper is a bit tight but it's already loosening and probably part of it being relatively water resistant. It's easy to see what is inside with the white/clear color and the workmanship is excellent.

    great bags

    Just got mine but they have replaced two nylon bags I was using. These look like they will last many years.

    Great to keep organized

    Posted by Kevin Chandler on 19th May 2021

    Litesmith is the best! These pouches are great. I have one for Water, First Aid/Repair and Electronics. Keeps me organized and they are sewn so they stand up, not sure the term...gusseted? These are great!

    Love the Zipza - would like a clear color

    Posted by Bob D on 17th Mar 2021

    These Zipza pouches are great. I use a medium one for first aid, and a smaller one for bottled liquids, like soap, sunblock, bug spray, etc. Sometimes this side-zip style is better than a top-loading stuff sack style, when it comes to being able to grab the item you want. I'd love to see a Zipza in the white/clear DCF. It's nice to be able to see into the bag and spot the item you want; the dye colors on the existing Zipzas make that harder to do. [LITESMITH] The grey color we offer is nearly white and the closest to clear available in DCF.

    Not watertight

    Posted by Max on 21st Jan 2021

    Great pouch. Love the quality and colors. But I've noticed that even if you zip it all the way there's still a hole left between the zippers where water can easily come through. [LITESMITH] Zipza pouches are not claimed to be waterproof. In fact we state on the product page, "They’re highly water resistant and will keep your stuff dry in typical backpacking conditions but they’re not fully waterproof and should not be submerged".

    great pouches for ditty bags.

    Posted by Perry, Hiking_Fireball on 6th Sep 2020

    I ordered the bags to keep my equipment organized and easily accessible. I used one for my personal hygiene, one for my repair kit, one for my first aid kit. They work so great I’m going to order two more for my food accessories; spices and such and one for my toiletries. I wish I could get that one in orange, for those “I-Got to go now “ times when you want that bag to really stand out. LOL. These are great water resistant options that make finding and getting your gear quickly. I order mine in different colors so it makes them easier to identify.

    Perfect for my phone

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Aug 2020

    I use the small pouch to keep my phone('s camera) handy on my pack. It's perfect; nice and light, sturdy, and water resistant enough that I'm not worried about the contents while on mist trails or when caught in a light rain.

    so light!

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jun 2020

    Large pouch is big enough to hold all my copious smaller items for a thru hike. More durable than a gallon ziploc and keeps things dry in the rain at similar weight to the ziploc. Big enough that I am using some mini-ziplocs within the pouch for sub-organization (first aid, toiletries, etc.). Considerably lighter than other zippered pouches on offer of similar size. Flat bottom means it stands well too, which is convenient.

    Love this little bag

    Posted by Sara G on 1st Jun 2020

    I love my zipza bag. I use it to carry my toiletries/feminine hygiene and personal care items for backpacking. It's feather light and super durable. The flat bottom makes it really easy to get to everything in the bag without dumping it all out. Not sure what else to say but I love it!

    Perfect lightweight pouch for a First Aid Kit

    Posted by Todd on 23rd Jun 2019

    I like the flat bottom, which is uncommon amongst DCF pouches. The dimensions of the "Medium" perfectly fit the items I carry for a 5-6 day backcountry trek. High quality item, and the service from Litesmith was outstanding.

    Love the Zipza!

    Posted by Cloudsurfer on 14th Jun 2019

    I used the small Zipza pouch for my ditty/first aid kit on my AZT thru-hike and in the Peruvian Andes. I absolutely love this pouch. It’s very well made and after nearly 1,000 miles it’s still like new. Great workmanship, Litesmith!

    Best I’ve seen

    Posted by Cleve Johnson on 2nd Feb 2019

    I have dyneema pouches from HMG, Gossamer Gear, zpacks, and granite gear. These are the best. They feel tough without feeling heavy. The zippers feel sturdy, and the ‘pouch’ bottom hold more gear and stands up on its own. I’m a big fan. Please get the green ones back in stock.

    This little pouch is one of my favorite pieces of gear, I have one in my computer pack and it gets used every day. The materials, fit and finish are top tier. Clearly, there was a lot of thought put into this seemly simple object as the zipper is situated in just the right spot allowing good access, visibility, and smooth snag free operation. I plan on ordering more.

    Nifty Pouch!

    Posted by Justin Moore on 10th Jul 2018

    This pouch is awesome for two reasons 1. It makes getting to your small items easy with the full length zip and 2. the gusseted bottom allows for it to stand up when items are in it and allows more room for digging around when looking for that .5oz flashlight and mini knife. These are so nifty I will probably pick up more to minimize my use of plastic baggies.

    Great product.

    Posted by Bob Barron on 3rd Jul 2018

    I love it. Very durable and great quality zipper. It saves our environment from using plastic bags that I typically would throw away. No worries any more about the plastic bag opening or tearing.
