Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bug-Out Backpack Pack is very well made. The rod holder is a great feature and lots of compartments for storage. Love that the one pocket acts like a sling pack for ease of access. Only adjustment I would make is the waist straps should be larger for hiking purposes, but love that they fold away when not in use. Overall a great pack for your fishing needs and/or hiking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Straps are poorly designed I went to the store planning to purchase this backpack. When I tried it on, I found that the straps turned inward so that (I'll try to explain) the inside edge of the straps laid across my chest at an angle, rather than laying flat. I even had a store employee try to help me adjust it. Neither of us could make it work. With the straps laying like they do, I see them rubbing my chest raw in rather short order. I wear other backpacks made by other companies without issue. These straps need to be redesigned before this can be a viable purchase. I love the pack itself. The separation in the main storage compartment would have worked well - carrying a DSLR in the bottom section and rain jacket, gear, etc in the top. Had the straps not been completely unworkable, this backpack would have gone to Yellowstone with me. I found one other problem with the design. The bottom of the water bottle holder un-zips to allow a rod tube to be inserted. We test fit an Orvis tube in the store. While the top opening was fine, the bottom zippered opening was too tight. I could, with a fair amount of effort, get the rod tube fully inserted. There was so much pressure on the bottom zipper though that I would expect the zipper to tear or some other portion of the bottom to fail in fairly short order. In my opinion, this pack is a great idea that has not been fully developed and is not ready to be released to the public. I can not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excuse to carry it all! I love this pack. It has so many pockets and there are plenty of spots to clip things on. Also the built in net holder is a must when on longer walks as your net doesn’t sway behind you. It is more waterproof than I though it would be as I took an accidental dip and my spare clothes stayed dry through all my flailing and waders filling up. Worth every single penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prettay, prettaaay, prettaaaaaay, pretty good. So many features that make this backpack the only piece of gear you need. Plenty of useful upgrades from previous generation Orvis backpacks. Performance wise, it balances nicely using the waist strap, or only the shoulder straps, so long as you don’t load excessive weight in the upper portion. The divider is key here. Helps keep fly boxes, reels, camera gear, etc all neat and organized, while letting you better manage the packed weight. Wish it was waterproof, but I guess that’s the trade off. Instead, you get a lightweight product with everything the waterproof backpack lacks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thought of almost everything Overall the Bugout backpack was very well thought out, the pockets are well placed and easily acceptable. My only negative comment is the waist strap is a 1 inch strap, I believe at least a 2 inch strap would help carry the weight.
