Functional sling pack -
By: chickey191 from San Diego, CA
I used a sling style bag way back in the 80's - one I got at the FFF Conclave. Very rudimentary, but worked well unless you lost your balance and everything could easily float away. The sling pack holds the same amount of stuff and I know eventually I will figure out the best way to set it up. I have a tendency to carry more fly boxes and "stuff" than necessary and this pack holds them well. I wish the interior pockets were different as they aren't really much good for holding anything that isn't relatively flat. Perhaps another divider (on velcro so you could adjust) would make it close to perfect. Haven't figured out a good way to carry my net without it drooping behind me and staying in the water, but will work that out. Like the bag. construction is great, comfortable and as I said, functional. Got it on sale which made it even better.
Just what I was looking for -

I was looking for a light weight back pack type carrier for my tackle. I don't fly fish but needed something for my spinning gear for hike in sites. This works perfectly.
Fits my needs perfectly -

I looked for a west or bag to have something that makes my fishing easy. This bag really fits my needs perfectly, enough space for all i need and really comfortable to carry. Highly recommended.
The Best out there But.... -
By: xnykid from Kansas, Missouri
Hey Orvis! yes this sling is the best of the slings out there today but you could totally and I mean totally eliminate the competition if you would just make the following few changes. First this sling needs to go over my Left shoulder and swing around my Right hip. Why, Because as a Right handed guy I LIKE to put my fly rod under my Left arm when I want to tie on a fly or what ever. Rod is in my right hand and I stick it under my left arm and right arm/hand is free to work. Come on you guys.... you know I am right, I watch your videos, you do it the same as me! Now, Keep the tippet and nippers on the side that they are currently so they come into view First when I bring the sling around my right hip. Currently it is harder to get at them and due to the position they are in and the fact that I have to bring the sling aalllll the way around to even see them. And here is the debatable but I think best design: the Hemostats on the front strap can be mounted handles down! yea, thats right, You already have that magnet in place and it will keep the hemos in place even if you didn't have a strap but I like the strap so leave it too but if the hemos are gripped by the handle and pulled down in a natural motion (off the magnet that is holding them) that would just Kick IT!!!! I am not the only one of your customers talking about this bag being the best out there but still needing some tweaking so getty up! I will personally buy 8 bags and give them to all my fishing buddies if you will make them for right handed guys.
Great Pack -
By: kzoo1 from Kalamazoo, MI
This is my third season with this pack. I can honestly say since switching from a vest, I have not wanted to go back to the vest. This pack works great while wading or in a canoe or drift boat. I can't say anything bad about the sling pack, it carries all I need and then some. I feel very organized on the river and can find everything I need very easily. If you are ready to try a pack for fishing, I don't think you can go wrong with this pack.

This is an awesome bag, it's not to big, just the right size! It is very well made, not cheap like some of the other Companies. Love it....

This is a great light weight pack, can carry 2 large fly boxes (really all you need if you have fished that area before) and a water bottle. It is so light you really forget you have this on!
200 days on the south holston -
By: livestoflyfish from somewhere on the South Holston River
I fish with this pack 3-4 days a week on the south holston. I love the convenience of a smaller sling. I would move the hemostat pocket to the back so when you bring the pack around to your front for access it is located near your tippet rings. Other than that it is great!
