- great pack,room,comfortable, large, mostly conviement Review by Buddylove
OverallWearing the slink pack, it hardly felt like I had a pack on my back and it was fairly loaded, sections were and we'll thought out, I would like to have tbe ability to attach a Headwater Chest pack, I have one that I am going to try to retro fit it to the front strap, if I can swing it(no pun intended) it would then be the best vest I own, I have 7 different fest, none completely satifly me, but I am so very close,

- Patience Pack Review by BigRob
OverallJust got this pack and went to fish the East Walker River, Nevada side, at first, I could not find where to rig my gear on it to be accessible at any time without slingin the pack around. Then I felt like when I pulled the pack around something was not right. You have to unbuckle waist strap so that, you can sling pack directly in front of you. They call it Large but its kinda "small". I like it though pretty cool pack once you get used to it.!

- Great pack you can wear all day!! Review by Jason81
OverallWhen I first received this pack I was impressed with, first the design of it and second, all the room it has. The first time i used it I strapped my 4love peice Sage to the rod carrier for hands free hiking, which was nice for the icy trails to my fishing spot. I like how it pulls around and all the pockets are rite in front of you for easy access. Im very pleased with my purchase and all my buddies want one now!

- Love it Review by Spencer
OverallGreat bag! A lot of storage and is very functional. Everything tucks away so you don't catch on anything. Very pleased in this pack.

- I like to bring the kitchen sink too! Review by James
OverallHolds all my LARGE fly boxes, heads, tips, extra 12 wt +spools and reels used for spey fishing. I even have enough room for extra clothes and lunch. Love the large strap. Because I like to carry all this stuff the large strap prevents a sore shoulder. Great product, probaby the best bag ever for spey nuts like myself.

- Another winner from Simms Review by MattyTC
OverallI absolutely love this pack. Simms thought of everything from zippers being on the right side when you swing the pack from front to back, to pockets everywhere for everything. It is a very comfortable pack to wear. I have used this pack for my fishing gear as well as for outings with the kids.
I highly recommend this pack. Great work Simms!

- The best option for me! Review by Maxim Sakulevich
Overall(Sorry my English!)
I chose long, between jackets, bags, backpacks ... Not a few have tried similar backpacks from other firms. And somehow I was not particularly happy about it. That is not the location of pockets, it sits on me not so, then the third, it prevents ... One word - it was not as we would like. As a result, fishing partly turned into a minor inconvenience)
But recently bought this backpack! T I'll tell you - I absolutely love it! A feeling that this thing sewed it for me ... So everything has been thought and convenient!
Я долго выбирал, между жилетами, сумками, рюкзаками... Не мало испробовало похожих рюкзаков от других фирм. И все как-то меня не особо устраивало. То расположение карманов не то, то сидит на мне не так, то трет, то мешает... Одном словом - все было не так как бы хотелось. В итоге, рыбалка отчасти превращалась в некоторое неудобство )
Но на днях купил этот рюкзак! Т я вам скажу - я просто в восторге! Такое ощущение, что эту вещь шили именно для меня... До того, все продуманно и удобно!

- Well thought out Review by Rick
OverallI received my large sling pack yesterday, loaded it up, and hit the river. I like the fit and how it feels, though new out of the box it's stiff, it'll take a little while to break it in. Spinning it around is easy, access is nice to get to the inside. My only suggestion is putting a couple of large net type pockets for bigger boxes on the inside of larger pocket. The very back one has no pouches to keep stuff from moving around and keep it organized.
Overall, I really like it. It'll see plenty of river time.

- Great Pack - Super Versatile Review by Lotty
OverallLove how easy this pack transitions from the back to the front. I was looking for something that could hold a solid day's worth of gear and fly boxes and this does the trick. If you overstuff your main pockets, it can push your workbench out of view a little, but other than that great pack.
