Orvis Guide Sling
Great pack that will hold everything you need for one day and more. There are a lot of features and lots of easy access points for the items you use most. Sling can be worn on either side.
Orvis Chest/ Hip Pack
The Orvis Chest/ Hip Pack is a great modular pack, and it can switched up between your hip, chest, or slinging it over your shoulder! At 3L, it can hold more than a standard chest pack. Although minimal, it comes packed with quite a lot of nice features, like a docking station, a tippet bar, and large main compartment with additional internal pockets to organize. It also has fly patch on top, and a place to attach forceps, nippers, and other tools conveniently!
Orvis Waterproof Sling Pack
There's nothing that says peace of mind, quite like total weather protection for your most precious cargo... your gear! Trust me when I say that it's better to be safe than sorry in terms of fishing in inclement weather! The last thing you want to experience is a gear bag that is completely soaked, ruining expensive flies and even leaders in its wake. Not only is this bag great for its waterproof capabilities, it excels in durability. You'll really appreciate this over time as you wade and hunt for trophy fish. Brush, branches, boulders will not damage and fray this bag like traditional bags would. You'll also enjoy the versatility and freedom of motion due to the sling design!
Having a waterproof pack is a total game changer - you get what you pay for with this pack for sure. You can add many tools and accessories, but not so many that it's extra bulk and in the way. Super awesome sling style pack
Orvis has thought of it all when it comes to this bag. This sling back will be lightweight for maneuvering around the river! I love storing my personal belongings in my waterproof bag for a piece of mind.
