Orvis Safe Passage Guide Sling Pack. The Guide Sling Pack levels the playing field - you against that wily fish hiding on the far bank. Sling style allows the angler to wear it over one shoulder, completely out of the way, while allowing quick and easy access to gear.
Large capacity means a home for all your gear-fly boxes, rain jackets, lunch. We've upgraded the shoulder strap with a cushy, foam-padded, streamlined design for all-day comfort. A bright interior allows you to easily spot stray flies, while the ventilated, molded back panel keeps your body cool and your mind on the fish. Forcep sheath on the shoulder strap features a magnetic anchor for easy access and securing. Unique zinger and tool attachment system allows easy integration of your favorite tool into the pack, providing quick and easy access to the tool while minimizing the chance catching. Strategically-placed water bottle holder can be accessed without turning the pack around. Cord loops allow the addition of a tippet bar. Fly drying patch on the top of the bag. Internal pockets and dividers help organize your gear; internal Velcro strip allows for the addition of a waterproof pocket (8G3H) to protect electronics. Sternum straps prevent excess movement of the pack while fishing or hiking. Burly 410-denier nylon boasts a coating along the bottom of the pack for increased water resistance.

Plenty of internal zipup pockets and a neat little hidden zinger slot which allows a pair of nippers to be partially concealed in an external pocket . . . very handy. There is even enough room to pack a waterproof jacket inside and a snack too.However take note; this pack is not without a few minor design flaws: the net hanging point is awkwardly positioned nowadays I hang my net at the lower point of the chest strap where it attaches ...
