- Great Pack Review by Dan
OverallThis is a great pack. Set up very well to hold enough fly boxes and amenities for a day on the water. There are two straps underneath the pack to hold an extra jacket/layer if it is needed.
It is extremely comfortable to wear and the neck strap provides great extra support. Very easy to swing around from your back when you need it or you can wear it on your front. I found it got in the way a bit wearing on the front but that is personal preference.
It is extremely well made and the zippers work very well. The velcro on the outside of the pack is great to hold your tippet, floatant, etc. The only thing I would like to see added is velcro inside the outer compartment. The tippet holder and floatant holder do not adhere at all and it would be nice if they did.
Would recommend this to anyone looking for a hip pack. Great product.

- perfect Review by lamouche
OverallBig , well made and feather weight. Love all the gadget with velcro.
Adding a magnet was big deal to.

- Nice functional pack Review by Szu
OverallOverall I like the style of the pack. The main compartment is big enough to carry my mini first aid kit, wallet, camera, and some snacks. All the little details about the bag makes me think that there was some thought into the pack; like the little magnetic, and the Velcro patch at the front. I also like how there’s two bottle holders.
I am aware this bag is not meant to be water proof, but there is one thing I would have liked to see on the bag. Most hiking bags I’ve seen have this lip that covers the zippers to help prevent water from getting in, and I’ve found they work well enough for what they are intended. I used this bag in the rain and the contents inside got wet. Something to keep in mind when deciding what to put in the bag. Hence why I give this 4 stars, instead of 5.
