The river is calling.
No, no one slipped hallucinogenics in your coffee—you're hearing the flow of the river in your head and seeing mayflies hatch off your desk because you need to go fishing. It's a good thing you tied a fresh batch of trout snacks up last night and threw them in your Simms Waypoint Large Sling, because you're sneaking out to that secret stream as soon as possible, and it's going to be awhile before you come back.
This large sling pack carries everything you could possibly need for a full day on the river with a spacious main compartment and a study, zip-down work bench where you can decide which fly will do the trick at that moment during the hatch. A large, padded shoulder strap keeps the pack close and makes access to gear easy with a sling-style design. The Waypoints Sling Pack also has plenty of external space for small tools and accessories with a magnetic tool ports, a hook and loop accessory patch, and a sunglasses pocket all within arm's reach as you fish.

I have been in search for the proper fishing pack for me for way too long! On shorter days on the water, I typically gravitate towards Simms waist packs, but I continually craved having more room on those longer days on the water. This pack has also come in key on the days where it starts out frigid and you quickly finding yourself slinging layers to the banks as it heats up; I now have a place to stash them.
I juggled between the sml & lrg size pack for too long and finally opted for large due to wanting more of a 'backpack' capacity vs. the waist packs I already use.
The large is super stable while fully loaded and I can easily fit my DSLR, coffee, brews, heaps of fly boxes, water, and an extra layer or two.
I am new into the sling game, and was a bit hesitant as I have tried another sling that had way too much going on in front and was cumbersome to sling around to the main compartment, this sling doesn't suffer from the same issue at all.
Even with my Rising Big Nippas & Bob's Tactical Pliers in the chest spots, this pack transitions back and forth with ease when you need to get to the main compartment.
In typical Simms fashion, this product doesn't disappoint with many thought out and intuitive features; while also being minimalistic and not overly 'techy' as some fishing packs are.
