Convenient for travel -

I bought this (on sale!) as a more convenient way to pack my fly fishing items without sacrificing convenience. I believe that it fills the bill admirably!

the neck padding is not comfortable could use 2 d rings on outside on bottom
Excellent pack -
Got a really great deal on this chest pack - clearance plus extra percentage off. Looks solid, feels great - can't wait to get to the river in a couple of weeks.

this is a full-size chest pack, which comes with two sets of belts, so it can also be worn around your waist. I love the versatility. This is a large capacity pack, but it won't get in your way if you don't festoon it with too many bits of equipment. This will easily carry four standard-size fly boxes plus leaders, tippet, etc. in a well-ordered fashion, so you don't waste time looking for stuff.

Very handy and useable pack. There are 3 zippable pockets for carrying a variety of items. The straps are can easily be adjusted to the right lengths. The zippers are easy to use and everything is made of quality materials. I am using it as a camera and tote bag for an upcoming trip to Boston and DC. My large SLR camera will fit perfectly with the lens detached and the lens fits nicely next to it. I am also a fisherman and could see using it for fishing and/or hiking.

Plenty of room and the space can be utilized different ways. It can also be supported by the neck, my preference, or on the hip. Zippers are perfect for quick opening and closing with one hand.
expected the best, and got it. -

I purchased this to try something other than a vest. For some reason, I'm the type that carries every fly box onto the water with me (even though I'll only open one), and the vest was getting bulky! The design of the bag overall is very thoughtful. Although our water is hard in WI this time of year, this seems like exactly what I was looking for! My only complaint is that the straps are made for very tall people. Even at the smallest adjustment, the bag hung by my belt.My father, who is a larger man than I, also found this pack to hang too low for comfort. To remedy this, I used the small padded strap for my neck and one of the webbing straps to go around my waist. While this isn't a deal breaker, it's something to be aware of. Overall, I'm very happy with the pack and can't wait to get on the water!
Good price , good product -

I like my new chest Pack and plan to use it for salt water fishing in hot weather. It looks perfect for the job. I have to say that a diagram with some images of the assembled item would have been nice. It comes with two sets of straps but doesn't show how they are used. The diagram and some labels could have also helped to show how the compartments and pouches are to be used.

I boughit this vest pack after reading other reviews and now use it exclusively without needing to use a wading vest. I find it large enough to hold all I need with me on the river, and I find it easier to organize all my bits and pieces. My one small criticism would be that the neck strap an feel a little uncomfortable after several hours fishing - no big deal but I feel sure the Orvis designers can tweak this feature to improve the design.
