This bag started my fly fishing addiction. Thought it would be a good bag for Disney. When I got it, I was so impressed that I started researching fly fishing and the rest is history. I stumbled into the best day bag for this sport. They thought of everything, very comfortable, light weight and many compartments for fly gear and self defense

Really great pack. Got the Fishewear color and it is not only functional, but cool looking too! Plenty of space for a day on the river. Room for flies, gear, and a couple of snacks. Comfortable, seems durable, and built for fly-fishing with a fly patch, forceps pocket, and net loop. Very nice.

The Orvis Safe Passage Sling pack has more than met my expectations. I decided earlier this year to convert to a sling pack after over 30 years of wearing a vest. The sling pack has reduced the stress on my shoulders during a long day fishing while providing plenty of room for all of the necessities. It has been used on five trout fishing trips and one smallmouth trip. There is enough room for two large fly boxes capable of holding articulated smallmouth streamers without issue. The large compartment holds much larger boxes than my vest was capable of holding.
The pack often remains on my left hip while on the river. It seems more convenient than sliding it back to front every time I change flies. Especially if I am nymphing an area where a lot of flies can be lost. When walking from place to place it is definitely more comfortable in the normal position on my back.
Overall, I really like the Orvis sling pack and I am even considering a second one so I can keep one loaded with trout gear and one with smallmouth gear.

This pack has several pockets, and attachment points for all your gear. Very ergonomic and comfortable. I recommend getting the optional waterproof liner. Happy with my purchase.

So I had a house fire and lost all my gear, the RFR team has been extremely helpful and super fast email responses which is key in today's market. This bag has storage areas that poca and orvis description leaves out. Great comfort, cool camo pattern and high quality zippers. Nice magnetic holder for forecepts on strap. And tippet holder hook ups on exterior. For the money couldn't be happier!

I've had several packs so far, this one is the most comfortable and most ergonomic. Plenty of room for everything you want to carry. Excellent quality as well.

I bought this sling to replace a small backpack I had been using for a few years. Tons of room, and excellent quality.

Gave it to my hubby for Christmas and he loves it a lot. The only improvement would be the waterproof version for rainy days, but he just resorts to putting his belongings in watertight bags inside the sling pack

This bag is great! I got it in the fishewear color and it looks really cool with the sewn on fish! The bottle holder fits up to a 26oz yeti bottle. I've only been fishing with all my gear in my wader pockets so it'll be nice to have this pack to carry the gear.

I used this item for couple weeks, it't good for most of the time. There is one thing I think need to be improved, the D ring on the location is not that good for put the net on, and the pocket for the water bottle is not safe for keeping my Yeti water bottle. But it's still a good sling for the price, comfortable, lightweight and big enough.
