- Simple but stunning Review by Herman
OverallI was a bit underwhelmed when the package arrived. The pack weighs almost nothing and when empty is tiny. Once you have loaded it up though it is extremely comfortable and well designed. Best waist pack out there!

- Loving it Review by Ray Ochoa
OverallUsed this pack on a recent trip to Christmas Island. Everything was dry as long as I kept it closed with zippers on top. When I waded chest deep I used it as a chest pack with great results. Only issue was when I was this deep one of my water bottles floated away. This could be fixed by me with some cord.

- Not So Good Review by Steve
OverallI ordered the pack through a local fly shop so the first time I held one was after I owned it. The materials used for the waist belt are pretty poor quality and are constantly coming loose during wear. The pack is pretty water resistent so in that respect it is adequate. My feeling is the pack is way overpriced for the quality. I sure miss the old days when Simms stuff was made in the US. If you are going to charge upwards of $100 for a pack at leat make the Chineese use good materials.

- Belize or bust ! Review by John - SantaFe/Texas/USA
OverallBought one of these for my trip to belize, and I'm glad I did we ran thru several storms and the bag got soaked, everything inside was high and dry. Love the plier holster pocket on top now I don't have to carry a sheath. I don't think theres a better flats pack out there. Keep on trucking' Simms you rock !
