Great Quality Pack -
By: PolskaFisher from New York
Was in the market for a some type of pack. I wanted one that was well constructed, not too big, lightweight & comfortable to wear while on the water. I found it with the S.P. Sling Pack. I've been out a few times with it & I forget that I have it on. It holds all my gear with room to spare. I really like this pack.

I really like this bag, It is easy to put on, and it fits well. Easy to get into , I find that it has all the room I need. The bag is very well made. Their is one thing I would like to see and that is more information on your web site about all of the details about this bag, I think it would be more helpful to your new customers.

I have worn a vest up to this point. A friend of mine suggested a pack instead of my old orvis vest. I got this on sale and I am thrilled with it. Everything stayed dry and i did get the pack very wet! Comfortable and easy to access while in the river!
A two thumbs up product -

I purchased this sling pack to ditch the Fishpond Arroyo hip/chest pack that I have been using for some time now. This sling pack holds a lot more items and the comfort level is down right comfortable. I love the idea where they designed the two spots to secure the hemostats. Adjustments are easy and has more than enough room for my needs( way more capacity than my old hip/chest pack). The materials used and craftsmanship are high in quality and I can see this pack lasting me a very long time. Thank You Orvis for producing a product that will make my time on the water more enjoyable.
Great... Almost perfect -
I love this pack. It does practically everything I need it to do. There are a few points that would make it perfect though. The foam patch position is pretty bad in my mind. When you put it on, it covers the zippers and makes it hard to get into the pack. I have sewed a piece of velcro to the front of the pack and stuck the foam patch there. It works much much better (see photo). Also I wish it had a few more pockets inside. I hope Orvis reads these reviews and works on these problems... All and all this is the best pack I have ever used.

my son bought me the Guide Sling Pack for Xmas. I decided the temptation to fill it up was too great so traded it in on smaller Safe Passage pack. Love it!!! can carry everything I need for a day of fishing and have room to spare. Hang my net from safety ring which hangs comfortably out of way until needed. Could use a few smaller pockets inside but just fine as is.

I love this pack. Had it 3-4 years. I don't fly fish, but I love wading in a local river or two and hiking in to a lake in the Uwharries. When I go fishing, I like to be THERE and not where it is noisy. So, this is very convenient and allows me use of my hands when fishing and when hiking in. It also forced me to pack essentials. I throw in a water bottle, a water filter, and a meal bar or two as well. My friends are usually a little jealous.

Purchased the sling pack because i needed ton replace old pack that I have been using . So far the Orvis sling pack has worked well for me. Simple design and easy access to all flies , etc . I may purchase the larger pack as to carry my camera .

I love the Safe Passage Sling Pack. However, today I returned it. Let me explain: I'm 66 years old and have been an avid traditional bass fisherman for years. I am retiring in 4 months and moving to a place that has multiple species of fresh water fish. So...I've decided to take up a new challenge and learn to fly fish. Due to bad knees I decided after I received the pack that I needed to rethink my choice. Therefore, I decided to get a fishing life (flotation) vest that has multiple pockets for storage. I'm a good swimmer but if I fall I now have some flotation. I really liked the pack and I think it would have worked really well if only I was younger and stronger.
