      Great Chest Pack - 1/15/2014
      By: from Kennesaw, GA

      Well made chest pack. Replaced my vest for this much lighter, and simpler chest pack. Plenty of storage for a day on the water. Attachment point for net on back. Not sure I will ever use a vest again.

      Great purchase - 12/13/2013

      Only reason I gave it four stars is because I havent been able to use it and test it out yet. It looks great though and has plenty of room. Cant wait to get out on the river with it.

      Just the right amount of space. Not too much, not to little. Lots of pockets, fold down fly space, net loop, pretty strong magnetic holders and soft neck strap. What makes it even better is you can use it as a vest pack or a sling pack. Makes a great gift or just keep it for yourself. Oh heck, get two!!

      good pack for packing light - 10/3/2013

      I used the pack for stream fishing in Maine. It is light and the magnetic tool anchor is great. The tools don't tangle with my line. Not a choice for a trip that requires a lot of fly boxes, but good for fishing a stream that requires a smaller fly selection.
