Orvis Safe Passage Sling Pack

Orvis have built a great reputation amongst serious fisherman, and when using this sling pack we were reminded why.

The focus here is on simplicity, and this confers great advantages. Whilst this is not the biggest sling pack for fly fishing we have reviewed, every pocket is easily accessible, and having less pockets actually means that you do not lose track of your gear.

If you are after a sling pack that is compact enough to hike with, or to spend long periods on out the river with, this is the one for you.

PROS
  • The bright interior of the pack, when the zipper is undone, in invaluable for spotting stray flies. Sometimes with this kind of sling pack, flies can lurk in dark corners at the bottom of the main compartment, but there is no such problem here.
  • The foam padding on this sling pack serves a dual purpose. Not only does it protect your gear should you decide to drop the pack on a stone, it also increases your own comfort when wearing the pack.
  • Though it might look like this pack only has one, large, main compartment, open it up and you will see a range of dividers inside. These offer a nice range of size and shape of compartment to organize all your gear.
CONS
  • Very few. If you carry a lot of kit out to the river, or if you are taking nets and other unusual items with you, this is not the pack for you. For the rest of us, however, this compact sling pack for fly fishing is perfect.
