Description

The best fish are in the backcountry.

Oftentimes, accessing the best fishing requires you to venture off the beaten path, which is why Patagonia designed the versatile Sweet Pack Vest. The pack allows you to comfortably carry a days worth of fishing gear and is hydration compatible for convenient thirst quenching. When you finally arrive at that rarely fished stream, you can sport the mesh vest on its own or wear it with the pack.

  • Pack's burly ballistics nylon with DWR finish boosts wet weather protection
  • Vest's polyester mesh breathes for warm-weather comfort
  • Vest can be worn alone, or you can detach the back of the vest from the front and attach the front of the vest to the pack's shoulder straps
  • Pack provides 1434 cubic inches or storage space
  • Water-resistant zippers keep gear dry when you're in the river
  • Multiple Hypalon attachment points on the pack and shoulder straps provide additional storage options
  • Interior hydration sleeve allows for convenient thirst quenching (reservoir not included)
  • Dual side expandable pockets hold water bottles
  • Interior organization pockets are ideal for extra spools, fly boxes, and tippet
  • Vertical pockets on vest keep gear organized and easily accessible

SWEEEEEET PACK!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this pack to replace my chest pack which replaced my hip pack which replaced my vest...
As you can see I have had a hard time with carrying my flies and gear. I never liked vests and so I began my search, the problem with the hip pack and the chest pack was there weren't as many pockets as a standard vest and no real ability to carry other gear. Nor were they as comfortable as a vest. I recently began going back to the vest because its the most versatile of the selections out there (for me).
Out comes the Sweet Pack! Its a vest, its a back pack, its a vest pack!!!
Really it is everything I need for a day hike in. I can put rain gear in it, I can put food in it, I can put wadders in it, I can put BEER in it. to top it off, I can convert it to just a vest and fish with it being very light.
I think this is my longest review ever and its for a fly fishing pack. THATS HOW GREAT IT IS!

Love it!

Great pack. Got it for a fishing trip to the White River in AR. Its only been on one 6 day trip, but it was awesome. Built like a tank, very well laid out and very comfortable.

What are the dimensions of this pack?

This pack is awesome, the fully detachable mesh vest is great and the pack has some really nice features. Not to mention it carries really well. I have used most fishpond backpack/vest/chest pack combos and this is much better. plus it allows you to pawn carrying the big pack off to your buddy since you can detach the vest!

Does this have a place to hold a rod tube...

Does this have a place to hold a rod tube or two? I can't tell from the photos.

Matt,
The pack vest could definitely carry a rod tube, looks like there are a couple options. Quick and easy would be in the water bottle pocket secured with one strap, or the straps on the bottom depending on how long of a tube, or there are options for adding your own straps...

Stoked on the upgrade

Patagonia has made a few versions of this pack over the years. It was recently discontinued for a few seasons and now it is back and better than ever. The backpack portion is wear you will see most of the changes. The back become a little more feature oriented, while adding a bit of weight. The vest portion stays pretty true to Patagonia's former vests found on the pack vest. Good for any angler. This pack/vest combo will do it all.
