I purchased two Granite Gear belt pockets to use with my Vapor Day pack. The instructions for attaching the pockets were very good and it was not hard to get them installed. Over all the pockets are very convenient and easily accessed. I have used them many times since purchasing them over a year ago.
The one thing I have noticed each time I am out hiking and really my only complaint, is that unless I am using trekking poles (which keep my arms out away from my body), my arms seem to constantly brush the pockets. Over the course of being out all day, you tend to not notice this after awhile, but each time I use the pack I encounter this minor annoyance. So, I have taken to putting them on if I an going to use trekking poles and removing them if not. They are useful, but in my case, I wish I could leave them on my pack all the time.
Another great product by Granite Gear. I got mine…

Another great product by Granite Gear. I got mine for Christmas and have only used it on one trip, but I am sold on it.
I was a bit worried that it may stick out in the way of my arm when it was by my side, but it is not a problem at all. It attaches in an intelligent way and provides a handy place for items I needed. I kept my GPS, cell phone, mini mag-light, and trail map in the pocket along with my keys and wallet.
Once again, a great product.
