I picked up this and the chest pack and am in love. Especially this sling. Best piece of fishing gear I’ve ever bought. Perfect for rainy season.

Fishpond Thunderhead Submersible Sling worked like a champ during some cold and rainy fly fishing adventures. The bag is large enough to fit a boat box and can hold good amount of gear for whatever you may find on the water.

I've tried many hip packs, chest packs, backpacks, even the Fishpond Summit Sling and Switchback belt system. This bag is the perfect size. Not too big, not too small, just right and well thought out. Great color choices and it's waterproof.

The Fishpond Thunderhead Sling is better than anything other sling out there. I used to have an Orvis Waterproof Sling Pack and had to return it because the zipper pull tabs came off. The Thunderhead is superior in every way. The zipper pull tabs are sewn and glued. There are more connection points, and the but in net holder is awesome. I looked at the Simms and Patagonia waterproof bags also, but the Fishpond is just better built and had a better layout. Don't think about it, buy the Fishpond Thunderhead and you can thank me later.

This bag is one of the finest products I have ever owned. it does everything its stated to do. The waterproof compartment is exactly what you need if you plan on getting a little wet. Highly recommned if you are looking for a waterproof sling.

This sling bag is my go to bag for all trips. The waterproof compartment is air tight. Literally!!! When trying to pack the bag for travel I have leave it slightly unzipped otherwise its like packing an air filled balloon. This bag holds all your needed gear and some. I've been let down by other sling bags but not this one. Great bag for the moving angler.

I use this primarily for inshore saltwater fishing on the shores of the Cape and Martha's Vineyard, and have found it to a perfect fit for carrying an afternoon of essentials - including a spare jacket and personal items. The zippers are bullet proof, and the large, clean interior is ideal. I also love the way it rides on my back - I hardly know it's there. A great pack, all around!

Took this pack on a recent trip to the Kenai peninsula. Wading through waist deep glacier water this pack kept my gear dry and handy. Perfect size. Large enough to carry all the essentials plus a few extras, like a raincoat and a pack lunch. Fly patch on the strap was very handy. Good for drying out used, wet, flies or quickly changing out a couple of your favorite patterns. Solid sling pack!

Love that this is water proof! Have had many times when I'm wading deep and this pack has gotten submerged. It kept my stuff bone dry. I bring this everywhere. Love the fly patch on the strap and the thought that has gotten into it. Just don't put too much of a heavy load with a long day of fishing or your shoulder might get sore. Still, I give it 5 stars.

I bought this for surf casting in rough Atlantic conditions, and That's hard on equipment. I wanted a pack to carry a light amount of tackle and keep a camera safe, and still be able to cast without interference. The Thunderhead sling is well built with very heavy zippers, and I think it will hold up well in saltwater. I'll probably be buying the lumbar version as well.
