Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Steelhead I own one of the Orvis Safe Passage sling packs that I use for trout and I love it. I was glad when they came out with a dry bag sling pack that I can use when steelhead fishing, it seems like it's always raining or snowing when I fish for Steelhead. I've been out twice for steelhead since I purchased this sling pack and all my gear stayed dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IF ITS GALE FORCE, BUY IT. I own the gale force backpack, waist pack and now because I was so impressed with the others I have the sling pack also. The waist pack is great for steelheading or short days, but the sling is exceptional for trout fishing. I can store all my various fly boxes as well as all the necessary tools, a small jacket or extra layer and a snack whilst keeping it all dry and protected. The gale force series just makes sense, whatever the weather and however deep I wade my gear is protected. They are all I use now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than a vest or waist bag Great design as it holds everything and more than previous products to carry and store gear. Perfect for the hiker and light packer. Have used it several times now and completely impressed. Fits me well, 6'3" and 225 and easily slides to the front for access and is out of the way during my double handed casting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I think they need to rethink the zippers I really wanted to like this pack. Purchased one in 2014. After about a season the zipper on the main compartment broke. I returned it to Orvis and they gave me a new one no questions asked. Great. Well after 3 times using it, the same zipper broke again. I love the design and the fact that it is the only water resistant pack on the market in this size.. All the other slings are way too big. However I think this is a design flaw. Orvis needs to put on heavier zippers to handle the watertight seams. If they do that I may come back to it. Until then, pass.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will Not Beat The Weather I bought this bag to use when the weather turns wet. Last week while fishing the Ausable in Northern Michigan I was caught in the rain. When I opened the bag to get an item out I discovered that the bag was soaked on the inside. To make matters worse I discovered that not only was everything in the bag wet but the water that had entered the bag during the rain did not drain back out! This is a huge disappointment, what is the purpose of a weather resistant bag that takes on water during rainy weather?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good until zipper broke I primarily use this for saltwater striper fishing. I keep leaders, tippet, sunscreen, binoculars, Orvis Hydros aluminum pliers (they fit perfectly in the chest strap), and several boxes of flies. It's been a reliable bag, similar to a water resistant backpack I also use but more convenient to access the contents because it's a sling pack. After less than ten uses, the main compartment zipper opened and won't close. I was in the surf when I went for a new fly and noticed my bag was wide open and some leaders fell out and washed away. I hope this is just a lemon or that they've replaced the zipper with a more durable version. Watching your gear get swept away by the currents will ruin your day. Also, more padding for the right shoulder (the only option with this bag) would be good since that's my casting arm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right I went from a fanny pack to a sling a couple of years ago for more wading room and better access. The one that I have been using was a little small for the winter steelhead fishing I use it for. I wanted to be able to carry a small thermos and a light rain jacket/wind breaker in addition to my flies and lines. The Gale Force Sling is just the right size and water tight to boot. The zippers are positioned in the right place for easy access when you pull it around front to get at what you need. There is not a bunch of stuff hanging off the outside to hang up on brush or otherwise get it the way. All in all, it is just what I was looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for deep wading and saltwater Being waterproof is its great virtue. I would have given it five stars except that it lacks some of the features and organizational ability of the regular sling pack. But for deep wading, and for fishing the surf or flats it is the best solution I have tried. Definitely a keeper
