  1. Perfect


    This is truely a great bag. It keeps all your stuff dry in the main compartment and has alot of storage in the front pocket. I like that the side pockets can be tightened, I end up putting all kinds of garbage I find in them and then forget I put it in there. The straps are comfortable and I just took it hunting with me. Having something so versatile is importable to me. It's a great bag.
  2. Awesome Pack


    I don't know why this one has low ratings. It's an awesome pack. Simple, tons of dry storage in the main compartment. Durable material. The outer pocket holds a few big fly boxes and random gear. Straps are comfortable. I don't bother with the waist strap. This thing is great. Wish I had it when I was guiding in Alaska. I love that I can transition from wading to the boat without swapping between hip packs and boat bags. It's my go-to bag for everything now.
  3. Good bag, but design needs work...


    Like the previous review stated, the shoulder straps are very awkward and do not allow for a good fit/integration with the chest pack. I like the bag, but actually end up using the Waypoints chest pack with it's own straps and then put on the backpack. This makes the integrated lock-in system pointless. As the other review stated, it's simply too high and ends up feeling like the chest pack is at your neck.

    Overall the bag itself is great, just not the best placement for the chest pack anchoring system, which is one of the reasons I wanted the bag.
  4. was super exited about this but does not work for me


    Pros: Front pocket is great, side waterbottle/ rodtube holders are great.

    Cons/things to consider for next version: Shoulder harness is uncomfortable on neck. Should harness is uncomfortable and not near tall enough to fit me. I am 6'1 so not a giant. Because of the shoulder strap length I cannot attach a chest pack etc to the attachment points without it strangling for me. In the future please consider an adjustable yolk/ longer shoulder strap pads for people with longer torsos, and maybe 1 or 2 pockets in the inside for organization. Other than that quality of bag is good and solid
