When the perfect spot to drop a line is halfway across the river, through swift currents and over rocky riverbeds, you need a pack that can brave the water with you. You won't have to leave your gear on the dry riverbank with Simms' Dry Creek® Backpack, a fully waterproof and durable pack that keeps your essentials safe and dry. A secure roll-top closure keeps the inside dry even when fully submerged. Stretchy mesh water bottle pockets on the outside and more mesh pockets on the inside keep everything organized with ease. The non-absorbent foam back panel, waistband and shoulder harness are fully cushioned and quick to dry.
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.

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
