White River Fly Shop® Technical Tri Chest Pack
I'll reserve final judgement until I have fished with it for a while, but it is not quite what I expected. For example, the only D ring is on the back to hold the net. This D ring is attached to the backstrap by a flimsy piece of shockcord. I didn't dare use my magnetic net holder, as I am afraid the attachment wouldn't hold up to the force needed to remove the net. There should be more D rings to attach tools,
The design of the front pockets really limits how much they can hold. This unit doesn't hold all that much considering it's size. The zipper holding the backpack unzips very easily, and could be unzipped by brush while walking. I locked mine with a safety pin. The clamps that hold the straps attached to the front pockets can be tripped easily when removing a fly box.
I really feel this pack could have been made much more user friendly at very little additional cost.

Very comfortable. I use it for fly and spin fishing, so I can fit everything I need in it. The removable pack is great to have. Only thing I noticed is there's a piece of fabric that holds the flap at 90 degrees when opened, the zippers catch the fabric when opening. So if your ok with that BUY IT!!

Ok I Guess
I am new to fly fishing and this is my first vest/pack of any kind. I like the openess of it because where I live it doesnt really get cold. It also has quite a bit of room. BUT, The straps twist up sometimes when putting it on, the little straps in the back dont hold the rod very well (mine fell out a few times). and if your skinny when you tighten up the straps they lay to the side and I found that they rubbed my arm and side a lot. I will be looking for an actual vest of somekind soon.

Yes, They actually give you two neck straps. - an extra one. They thought of everything...I guess they figure that the neck strap will get worn and need to be replaced. This way you don't have to buy another chest pack. But to answer your question, each neck strap has a center plastic loop attached by an elastic to put a fishing net in the back! I hope this helps you!
