The Patagonia Vest Front Sling is a sling pack for bringing along all your gear on the river. The sling pack is a combination vest and backpack, with a low profile that won’t get in the way of casting. The front strap acts like a fishing vest would, with multiple pockets for your fly box, zingers, and more. When lunch time rolls around, swing the pack around without having to remove it and access your lunch in the pack portion. Organization pockets on the inside secure your keys and wallet. A handy water bottle pocket features a cinch cord so it won’t fall into the river.

Exactly what I was looking for.I bought this pack after researching several sling packs from other manufacturers in the fly fishing industry. I almost bought one made by a different company, but it did not have a rod tube attachment point. Sometimes I have to hike to my fishing spot through the woods, and being able to keep my fly rod safe from breakage, while freeing my hands to make a careful descent down some steep banks is ideal. This pack has two adjustable straps that secure a rod tube, or other gear to the outside. I love the exterior water bottle pouch, and the interior storage is just the right size to hold everything I need for several hours or a day on the river. Also, the pockets on the front strap portion of the pack hold most of the things I use while fishing. So even though this pack is easy to swing around to your front and access, you won't need to very often. Great pack!

Very Functional!I bought this as a beginner fisherman. I couldn't be happier as it has a lot of storage space to keep you organized.
