I bought this pack because I wanted something that was simple that works. It lives up to my expectations. I didn't want something that holds more stuff than I need on the water because, guaranteed, I would find something to put in it to fill the space even if it wasn't something I really needed. I can put all the stuff I really need in this one and there isn't much room left over for extra stuff to add weight that I don't really need. I like the fly bench because I can get to my flies and see them without having to worry about dropping anything and losing stuff. I like the waist strap/shoulder strap combo. I don't have to have the waist strap so tight that it gets to be uncomfortable and everything stays where I put it. I can also slide the pack around pretty easily when I want to in order to be able to look through the pack and get what I want easily. All in all, a very good design that isn't overdone. Actually, I like the design so much, this is the second one I have purchased. I bought one about 10 years ago and when my wife wanted to start getting into fly fishing with me, I purchased this one for her. She feels the same way I feel about this product. It also says something that I have had mine for almost 10 years and there is no ill affects of aging. There are no tears or frays in the first one I bought so the pack holds up well and lasts.

It may look small, but this pack is so well designed - with so many pockets and compartments - it works like a bag twice the size. I wear mine like a sling, but offers a bunch of flexible options. I owned this bag for nearly 10 years, and it's still my go-to option. And of course, it comes with Fishpond's legendary quality.

It’s a pretty good alternative to my vest. I keep it packed with everything I need while wading the streams. Two reels and 3 fly boxes. Only wish it was waterproof, but I knew that before I got it. I really like it!

This is a great pack to have almost everything ready for getting to a river at any time! A lot of pockets to keep things and well made by FP.
