I very new to the fly fishing realm but I'm in need of up grading my old lowe alpine fanny pack. I'm considering either the patagonia stealth hip or stealth chest pack. What should I go with?
Stealth Hip Pack.
I've used it for a couple of months now and it works great. The design is perfect if you go into the backcountry and need a full fishing rig.
You can set it up as a messenger bag-style as a hip pack that won't cam into your waist like a "fanny" pack style will, or set it up as a chest pack if I am wading deep and need to set it up high.
Its great for backpacking because you can have it on your chest, or with the smart application of a few straps, have it mounted on your big pack nicely.
I'm able to stash all tools, flies, extra reel, camera (for the trophy picture), even food and a small volume of water in it.
The only thing it lacks is the fold-out table for tying on flies that some more expensive packs have. However, I have not found that I really need that kind of thing myself.
