Avid anglers need a waterproof backpack.

Downpours and wet river crossings are no match for the Patagonia Stormfront Backpack. Built with a double polyurethane-coated nylon shell, fully welded seams, and waterproof zips, this water-shedding schlepper keeps H20 at bay so you can carry your gear with confidence. Whether you're fishing for roosterfish at Crocodile Bay in Costa Rica or wading along the Henrys Fork in Idaho, your lunch and fly boxes are guaranteed a dry ride in this lightweight, breathable pack.

Removable shoulder straps stay separated by the 3-D spacer mesh lining the back of the pack. Fresh air can flow across your back and shoulders, even as you cast mid-stream. If you need a waterproof fishing bag to sit happily on the deck while you wrassle with your latest catch, simply remove the shoulder straps. The Tizpi zipper on the main compartment won't let water in, and the water-resistant stash pocket is the perfect place for a plastic baggie with your ID and cash.

The harness system comes with tool attachments and a bit of storage. A rod tube holder on the back of the pack gives you the option of bringing an extra, or simply giving Sweet Betsy a safe ride to and from the river. The Patagonia Convertible Vest attaches to this pack when you want more upfront storage and immediate access to nippers, flies, and lip balm. Even if you've forgotten a poncho and a tropical deluge ensues, you'll finish the day knowing your gear will be dry, even if you aren't.
