Guide's Pack Pockets and Straps - Tom Bihn Bags for Apple iPad and iPad mini

As you might've guessed, The Guide's Pack Accessories are designed to work with The Guide's Pack. Maybe you didn't order a Lead's Pocket when you ordered your Guide's Pack and want to do so now, or maybe you lost your Ice Axe Strap -- here's the place to order those (and more) accessories.

Left Side Pocket / Right Side Pocket:

Either of these side pockets can handle most one liter water bottles; a down vest and/or light rain shell will find a home there as well. A flap-covered #8 YKK zipper runs up the side and over top for access; all Side Pockets feature a zippered (#5 YKK coil) pocket hidden on the underside (the side that's against the surface of the main pack when the pocket is in situ), for quick and furtive access to keys/wallet/phone. Attaches to the Guide's Pack with four Annex Clips.

Lead's Pocket:

The Lead's Pocket is the same size as the Left and Right pockets, but it features extra, internal organization needed by the leader of any group: heavy webbing to clip multitools, flashlights, and knives; two zippered mesh pockets ideal for a space blanket or first aide supplies; three O-rings to tether car keys or pouches for even further organization; elastic loops for pens/pencils; and behind it all, a long, flat zipper pocket sized to accommodate a map or field guide. Unlike the Left and Right Side Pockets, the Lead's Pocket zips all the way around so you can open it like a clamshell, making it perhaps the ultimate "Admin Pocket".

Lash Straps (set of two): use one set of two Lash Straps on the top, left or right sides, or bottom to secure a small sleeping bag, sleeping pad or other similar item.

Ice Axe Strap: helps secure an ice axe to the front of The Guide's Pack.
