Take a hands-free treasure pouch on your next excursion to the McKenzie’s scenic riverbanks, to safely keep every magical trinket the river sends your way. Skipping stones, gems of water-smoothed glass, even sprouts of succulents collected from damp rocks will fit snugly inside this handy pocket. Slip it right onto your belt loops and the bobbles and stripes, reminiscent of the concentric ripples of splashed water, will surely inspire a McKenzie River adventure!
