    Details

    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
    • Item #PAT3247

    Simple, but still innovative

      It seems like such a simple idea to attach a fishing vest to a backpack like this, but this is honestly the first time I've seen this. I picked it up and was instantly impressed by how well made everything was and how truly waterproof the pack is.

      Quality Item

        I was super hype for this Patagonia backpack and fishing vest. I had originally planned to use the bag all the time, even for just my casual outings. I was wrong once I recieved the item. The bag is made with excellent material and is very high quality and durable, but it's just super small for casual backpacking. With that being said, it's made for fly fishing... And it plays the part well. I highly reccomend the backpack if you are fly fishing. If you are not, stay away. I accidentaly dropped the bag in a puddle, conpletely submerged. Guess what.... It disn't collext any water inside. It might as well be called waterproof. I use my tenkara rod holder in the water bottle pockets, and it's a little small. But with a regular fly eod tube, it would fit perfect. I love this thing and woukd recommend it to every fly fisherman.

        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!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        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.

        rad!!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        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!

        rad!!

        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...
