The main zippered compartment has an internal divider for simplified organization, while stretch mesh pockets bolster the pack’s chaos-conquering powers.

- The best pack with a few minor issues... Review by Brett
OverallBest pack in the industry. I guide 75% of the time walk/wade style, so I go through a fair number of packs, and am always interested in the next best thing. Well, the headwaters is the best, tons of storage. Page style setup is awesome but,,, what happened to the velcro on the inside? That stuff couldn't hold up an empty bottle of gink, let alone tippet spools. Needs to be stickier/real deal velcro. The holder for the bottles themselves are suspect. Lost a bottle of dry dust pretty quick when velcroed to the outside of the pack. Consequently I used a piece of paracord for a tippet holder, on the outside of the pack, located on the hip/side, horizontal in orientation to avoid hang ups from typical vertical tippet ''t''. Bottles of gink and dry dust are watched carefully or put inside the g4z pockets now. Could also use more storage on the inside where the velcro is located.

- Not a suitcase, but plenty of space Review by Jon
OverallFirst off, The options on the market for a pack large enough to hold everything you need while guiding is slim. I always have a hard time with packs that just dont quite hold enough. After some configuration of contents, everything I need fits well into this pack. I love the little features inside of it..from a little tippet holder to and awesome lumbar support. This pack is super comfortable and sits well on the body. Probably the best Ive found yet, at a great price too!
