The Patagonia Sweet Pack Vest is a backpack and vest combination for hiking out to your favorite fishing spots. The pack is made with a highly water resistant fabric to keep gear dry on the inside. The main compartment has pockets on the inside, so you can properly organize your fly boxes, other fishing gear, and lunch. Slip a hydration bladder into the sleeve on the inside, or stuff water bottles into the side stretch pockets. A waist belt and sternum strap keep the heavy stuff stabilized along the unbeaten path. When you arrive at your secret spot, remove the pack and go vest-only. The vest is made with a lightweight mesh to keep you cool and features plenty of front pockets for quick access while on the river.

Great FeaturesReceived this pack combo last week just in time for 3-day trip to West Branch of Delaware. Used the mesh vest alone and found it cool and comfortable. Ample pockets and attachment points for essentials. Will use the pack/vest next week fishing Montana and update review upon my return. I like the ability to carry two rod tubes however lack of a proper waist belt is a minus. May not be a problem if load is not too heavy. Nevertheless very nicely designed, full featured, fishing gear. update
