One SidedThis looks to be a well-made pack, but it is designed to hang on your right shoulder. As a predominantly right handed caster the last thing I want is to fight my pack all day with my casting arm. I sent it back

Good but not perfectI bought this pack for long hikes through stream beds and across open land. I really like the way it wares as a backpack while walking/hiking/fishing. I switched from a chest pack that would choke you out if you didnt have the balance between front and back storage just right. There could be a few more smaller pockets inside the large storage areas to keep thing in place. After 1 year using the pack, I am pretty happy with it, I just needed to rethink how i carry and attatache gear.

Almost perfectLike many of you, I am struggling to find the perfect pack to use since moving away from a traditional fly vest years ago. I read as many reviews as I could before making my next purchase. I settled on 2 potential products just based on research then made the final decision once at Cabelas store. It came down to the Fishpond Summit Sling and similar product from Simms. The reason I chose the Summit was based on what I felt was a better working "deck" because it's cleaner. Also the sling is much more functional + I just like FIshpond products a little more. So far I have no regrets and am willing to give this a try for a few summers- it's my first attempt at using a sling pack. The Summit Sling has more than enough room for what I will need in a day pack. The reason for a 4-Star and not a 5-Star review is a few things to point out to others doing research with reviews; The concealed net sleeve is poorly designed and does not fit a standard net handle. Both large pockets are simple cavities- I would have appreciated dividers or compartment to help organize gear. Finally, as already mentioned the gear tabs (Hypalon sleeves) are strictly designed to accommodate the expensive Fishpond round zingers- so if you are not a fan then you have to rig up nippers, floatant, hemostat ect...in your own way. Overall nice job Fishpond! Cabelas thanks for carrying so many products. It keeps me coming back!

Close But Not QuiteI purchased this pack to use on a trip in the NY Finger Lakes region. The overall design of this pack has potential. But it definitely needs some refinement. You will almost certainly need 2 pairs of nippers. One for the pouch while tying and rigging gear,and one for the shoulder strap to use when you don't want the pouch in front. The rubber/plastic attachment tabs on the shoulder strap near your neck will rub you raw as mentioned by a previous review. Maybe a collared shirt would eliminate that,who knows. Also, rigging up some type of lanyard for your net makes it impractical to spin around while your net is in the net holster that's built in to the pack.
Maybe over time I'll figure out a better way to use it. But, I have a feeling I'll end up using my Fishpond vest instead.

Black HoleI have been flyfishing for over 50 years and have always used a vest. Typical problem with vests are you can tend to carry more things than you need (over the years) so I thought I would try several sling packs to find one that might work. Most chest packs are too small & lumbar packs will get wet with deeper water. In any event, there are two problems with this pack: 1) the two large pockets have no individual organization within them thus both are black holes for your gear. Fishpond compensates for this with multiple external attach points - for the pieces of equipment they sell!. 2) At some point you'll want to slip this around to access gear but when you do, it's not going to be horizontal thus risking items going into the drink.

Very poorly designed, not easy to useI spent a lot of time researching this product. Once on the stream it failed. The sling has a very rough patch of material which rubbed my neck almost raw. The sling has 2 opposing semi-hard plastic pieces sticking out that absolutely hurt my neck!! This product wasn't designed by a fly fisherman. I fly fish 50+ times a year and was looking to replace my vest. Returned product after 1st trip. Save your money for a vest. The intent is also that this would be a fanny pack because that is the ONLY way one could reach into the pouch for flies, leader, etc.

Everything I WantedI searched for packs for over a year. This pack has everything I wanted. Plenty of points to attach tools and accessories in multiple locations. This allows you to put things where you need them, not where they think you should have them. I packed this down with a large fly box, large arbor reel cover, and a jacket. Inside pockets under the hard cover are perfect for my split shot, leaders, and license. I like the lash tabs that on the pack, I just wish those tabs came with the pack, or were even for sale at Cabela's. I had to order them from Fishpond. I would have gladly paid for them, but that small thing is not enough to rate any less than 5 stars. Pack rides nice when full and having the water bottle on hand as well as the slot to hold a net means I can just put this on and walk to my spots. I am going to beat this pack up this year.
Every picture I see with this pack has little goodies attached to it all over (tippet holder, nippers, swivel retractors). The description says no accessories. Can you please clarify or send a realistic pic of what will come with this if I order it online?
