A pack that should be, but isnt, the best on the marketGot this pack after using the [other brand] stealth hip pack for years, wanted something waterproof. Unfortunately this pack just isn't that functional.
There is a desperate need to improve the one handed closing features here. It's a struggle to slide it around your hip for access with a net in place, and without. You literally have to drop your rod if you want to close it after opening- there are no pull tabs to make it even moderately easier to use. The interior is that of a hollowed out buoy. Spacious, yes, but functionally cheap. There's one pocket that lines the interior, big enough for a fishing license and a few leaders. The rest of the space, is exactly that. Space. No other pockets or organization. Nothing that makes storage and organization easier. My boxes and material just randomly drift around in there, which quickly becomes a pain in the rear. Frequently find myself unloading multiple items to get to something at the bottom. The shoulder straps is a pain to adjust, [other brand] has a finger loop to adjust that makes adjusting a breeze. Other features are market standard at best.
For the price point, I'm expecting to buy the best waterproof pack on the market. Instead, this is a hurried version of a glorified buoy. Creating the best on the market doesn't mean giving me the option to spend another $100 on clunky accessories to make this actually functional. Fix it. You can do better.
I don't regret buying this hip packI just got mine this week. Still learning how to use it.
-water proof. (it's airtight, and I hope the quality lasts because I really like this hip pack)
-huge volume to carry lots of stuff. you can pack toilet paper roll and then still have space for water bottles
-super comfy around your hip and it doesn't get in the way while you cast.
-makes a GREAT boat bag since it's water proof. (i'm looking forward to the new 2019 bag. seem's like they improved the opening/closing of the main zipper by giving it a similar magnetic clip like the g4 pro hip pack.)
-lack of mesh pockets and dividers inside
-doesn't come with floatant/shake holder attachments
-no tippet tender with velcro attachments
-and the zipper is incredibly hard to open and close when you first get it. I haven't tried the lube that it came with yet. But i'm looking to get the tippet tender one way or another. It was the main reason why I bought a Simms hip pack.
UpgradeI had the older style for years and finally wore out the zipper. I upgraded to this bag and it's vastly improved. It's a little larger to hold plenty of boxes and a small rain jacket. Favorite features are the velcro tabs that stow away extra straps. Nothing for you line to catch on. My only complaint is I wish there were tabs to grab a hold of when zipping and unzipping the T-Zip. It's pretty stout, so you have to get a hold of the bag pretty well to get it opened. Otherwise very comfortable and love it!
