This is simply the best all-around pack we tested for this review. It represents, for us, the perfect mix of design features and quality of workmanship.
First and foremost, the materials used in this pack are great. The nylon used here is significantly thicker than the average fabric used on packs of this type, and the outcome of this is that this pack feels incredibly rugged. The people we talked to for this review said that they trusted Fishpond packs to keep performing for many years, and we are certain that this sling pack for fly fishing is no exception.
In addition to this, the pack has attachments, rings, and clips in all the right places, and is a joy to use when out on the river. Everything you need is close to hand, and can be easily accessed, whilst also being securely held when not in use.

- The patented molded drop down fly bench on this pack is marvelous. We wish that other packs included a similar feature, but at the moment it seems to be limited to Fishpond fly fishing packs. It keeps all your flies nicely organized, and close to hand for when you need to change.
- This sling pack for fly fishing is totally waterproof. Sometimes, packs like this can let water in around the zippers, but with this pack the zippers are specially designed to avoid this problem.
- Using this pack when out fly fishing is a joy. When using it, you can really see that Fishpond have really thought about the placement of every attachment loop and pocket. There is a nice mix of large and small pockets, meaning that it is highly adaptable and will easily adjust to your style.
- Lastly, this pack is really comfortable. This is especially useful if you are hiking long distances to get to your fishing spot, and this is an area in which this sling pack for fly fishing really shines.
- Very few. If you are looking for a sling pack for fly fishing that will last for years, and is great to use when out on the river, this is the one to get.
