      Perfect for day trips! - 1/8/2015

      After using this sling pack all season could not be more satisfied. Enough room for a long day on the water.

      Typical Orvis Exceptional - 3/14/2014
      By: from Bow, NH

      I have many Orvis products, 4 fly rods, 4 fly reels, traveling rolling duffel, etc., and have come to believe that whatever I buy with the Orvis name on it is going to be superior quality and designed for me to use. I have purchased this small pack to carry my gear to and from the boat. It is just right. I never know when it will get wet, but that won't matter. Thanks again for a good product.

      Out of the way gear hauler - 2/10/2014
      By: from Northern California

      The sling pack is just what I was looking for, not as restrictive as a backpack but still enough room for a day on the river. It would have received a 5 star if the strap was curved.(it rides against my neck) Other than that it's great!

      Great Day Pack - 2/7/2014
      By: from Newport, RI

      This is a well made pack that has just enough room for a warming layer, rain jacket, snacks and a camera. The pack rides well and is comfortable. I have had on the water three times. My only negative comment on the pack is that it is not well suited for frequent access. I've used other packs that you can simply slide around for frequent and rapid access when you are changing flies, etc. this pack is a bit more cumbersome for that due to its vertical vice horizontal long axis. Perfect for the aforementioned tasks though - I've just been keeping my fly box in my wader pouch while searching for the right pattern. It's also pretty water tight. Last trip I fully submerged it to test it. Only a few drops in at the top of the outer pouch zippers.

      eh! - 2/4/2014
      By: from Leominster, MA

      Came right away. There was a strap with buckles that I could not find a use for. Fits o.k.

      Gale Sling - 1/31/2014
      By: from Oregon

      Only used it a few times. It's been great. It's large enough for about anything you'd want. My kit usually consists of snacks, rain jacket, couple fly boxes, tippet, pretty much anything you'd want/need. I like that the material is stout, it allows the sling to sit on my back about the same whether it's stuffed full or nearly empty. It has not been exposed to long durations on heavy rain (yet), but I haven't had any issue thus far with things getting wet and haven't hesitated to put anything in there. It's a good little pack for someone who is on the move who is going to be away from the car for long periods at a time.

      Gale force sling pack - 1/29/2014

      This pack is fantastic, especially because it is waterproof. It is small enough to be carried anywhere but big enough to hold all the necessary supplies. It could use some pockets or something to organize fly boxes.

      Solid, Useful Piece - 1/28/2014
      By: from Chicago

      This is a really useful pack--the fact that it's waterproof sets it apart from most others. The switchable strap (for switching which shoulder you wear it over) is a great feature. The padded back and interior pockets are also smart features. I like it already.

      Great quality, nice features - 1/16/2014

      Haven't had it out in the rain yet, so I can quite review it's most important feature. But, just from the looks of things, this is going to be a great pack. I plan to use it to haul camera gear with me while fishing, using the outer pocket for slim fly boxes, and the large main pocket for camera gear and a streamer box or two.

      Excellent travel bag. - 1/16/2014

      Great bag at a great price. I use this bag as my under seat airline travel bag and as a boat bag when I am fishing in Mexico and Belize. Perfect size and easy to carry.
