has anyone out there created hip belt pockets for their Golite Pinnacle. If so can you post a pic so I can get some ideas to create my own? Much appreciated, thanks.Mar 28, 2009 at 10:23 pm #1489508
I am also looking to make some. Anyone make their own?Mar 31, 2009 at 10:00 pm #1490253

I'm sorry this isn't exactly what you are both looking for, but for design ideas you may want to check out MountainLaurelDesigns pack pockets. I ordered two of the size medium (4"x6") from them for my PCT thru-hike this year and they fit perfectly on the hip-belt wings of both my Golite Jam2 and my Pinnacle packs. They can easily be sewed or safety-pinned in place to keep them from sliding around while you hike or when you take your pack off. As a bonus, they are made from the same material as the Golite bags and look pretty good (just a tad lighter than Golite's "grease" color).
For a capacity example, one of the medium pockets can easily fit my small Canon digital camera, a tube of chapstick, and my Leatherman Squirt with room to spare.Apr 1, 2009 at 5:21 am #1490312

You might want to consider a small fanny pack instead. Worn on the front, it gives ready access to it's contents, and it can be used to carry items when you leave your pack in the tent. There are many choices out there.

Ditto that suggestion, except mine is not too small.
It makes a convenient container for camera, ditty bag, FA kit, water purification stuff, TP (don't let Clelland read that:-) and other personal hygiene items.
And topped with a 4x4x1.5 inch piece of open cell foam it makes a very usable pillow.Apr 4, 2009 at 7:08 am #1491173

I found a small fanny pack that I turned in to a hipbelt pocket. It was branded National Geographic. It was the perfect length for the hipbelt space I had (I'm skinny so it's small). Two pockets, one main one keeps my camera and another one has a fleece-y lining that's meant to carry sunglasses. I cut it up to save weight and sewed it on with dental floss. It's perfect and cost was only $5.
