5 stars...never taken it fishing.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I tried fly fishing once up at Gastons on the White River. Apparently, Im not coordinated enough to do it without being more of a danger to myself than the trout.

But, Im amazing at my IT job. I make my living with two laptops and a tablet. I live in New Orleans, where it rains a lot. And, not a nice misting rain like in Seattle. Rain that makes you think about building an Arc.

Im also OCD as it gets and love anything that I can use to organize with.

Enter this pack.

The hydration sleeve is perfect for laptops. All the little compartments are great for chargers, USB keys, travel mouse, pens, water bottle, etc, etc.

The shell isnt waterproof. You cant submerge it and expect the contents to stay dry... But, it is VERY water resistant. So, from the truck to the door. even in driving rain, I never worry about any of my stuff getting wet.

The back panel is raised and has great airflow. In the summer, thats big and keeps you from showing up to your meeting with a huge wet spot on your back.

The color is a nice change of pace from every other IT guy's black pack. When theyre all stacked at the door to a server room during a project, its nice to be able to quickly locate mine and grab and go.

I know its strange, but I really dig this pack for something that it completely was not intended for. And, as always with Patagonia, lifetime warranty.

Amazing fishing pack

The pack is great. It is comfortable to wear, light weight, has a hydration pocket, has plenty of room for fly boxes (all of which are secured in individual pockets), and can hold a a ton of gear. The outside daisy chains are great to strap a net retractor and net and the fold down fly box / work station in the front is a nice added touch, especially to hang used streamers to dry.
