I bought this pack as an all day alternative to a vest . I can store all my boxes and tippet etc and still have room for a descent lunch and a rain coat even a micro fleece goes in !!! Comfortable and unhindered fishing first class
Great flyfishing sling pack -
By: mannybee from Newcastle upon Tyne
I was lucky to have received this sling pack as a gift from my wife. Knowing I owned several fishing bags and packs I could never find a bag that was comfortable to carry all day, and also have the capacity to hold all I need for a full days flyfishing, including my flask and sandwiches. With The Orvis Guide Sling Pack I can carry everything I need in comfort and all day with plenty of room left so it's not all jammed in,making it easier to get what you need without taking everything out to find things, the way it is designed to swing under your arm to the front and end up in the perfect position to access the zipped compartments is great. I do also own a sling pack made by another company which is probably less than half the capacity of the guide sling,and I always had to carry another pack with the other sling bag. There are also some really good features built into the guide sling, tippet holder good size foam fly patch,a place for a water bottle with an elastic retainer and the hidden magnets that hold your forceps and clippers in place to stop them swinging are a great idea. All in all I am extremely happy with this bag and would/will be recommending to my friends. Only thing I could suggest that would maybe make this sling pack better is some sort of strapping system on the back of the pack to strap your rods/wading stick to and a pocket incorporated into the main carry strap. Still as it is I'd give it a 5/5 star rating.
Guide Sling Pack -
By: sidargyll from Glasgow
I had already bought the smaller version of the Sling pack and was very impressed by it, although I felt I needed a slightly larger version to hold all that was needed to be self-sufficient for the day whilst out on my own and the Guide Sling Pack ticks all the boxes I can get all my Fishing gear fly boxes reels tippet and spares plus there is room for my camera a snack and water bottle holder on the side plus fly patch provided and tippet holder placed handily outside also pouch for forceps/scissors on the outside with magnetic holder and the design means you can comfortably Fly fish with the pack snugly worn across your back out of the way... without reservation I would recommend this superb Pack to all Fishermen who like to disappear for the day and like to have all their gear at hand without having to lug about a large bag or backpack...try it you wont look back I,m converted.

This bag has a place for everything! It has a place for flies, a roll to store line and tippet. It fits comfortably and is easy to access.
Nice, but larger than expected -
By: mrfaloo from Santa Rosa, CA
I like the overall design, with lots of internal pockets and compartments. I returned the item because I wanted a smaller format. Great if you want to pack lots of stuff in with you!
great product from Orvis -
By: Kerm from Atlanta, GA
Very pleased with the variety of pockets to store gear and equipment. The tippet holder works great and the sewn in magnet holds the nippers secure until I need them. Give it a try and you'll be glad you did.
Best all-around solution on/off the water -
By: 2tall4most from Wilsonville, OR
I don't like trekking around with a lot of gear when I fish, nor do appreciate the 100+ year old technology of the fishing vest nor wearing everything around my neck. This comfortable to ware bag keeps all of the necessary gear easily accessible whether fishing from the banks or wading into the streams. The water bottle pocket is a great feature and bonus, it also has a great style/design. Great product Orvis.

By: ScottyMcDougal from Sydney, Australia
Solid construction. Perfect size. It's very easy to cast with this pack. I particularly love the extra tags on the zips - I can grab them without looking every time.

The Guide Sling Pack is the perfect size for everything and it comes with the tippet holder already attached.
