    Compact storage for the minimalist angler.

    Forget lugging around an oversized pack on the river, especially if you're just out for a few hours after work or squeezing in a quick morning session. Instead, grab the Patagonia Stealth Hip Pack for compact organization of all your flies, tippets, and fishing accessories without the hefty size and back-straining discomfort of a larger pack.

    The Stealth Hip Pack employs Cordura fabric for rugged quality, complete with a water-resistant finish that repels river water from seeping through. It's reinforced with a stretch-woven back panel that conforms to your movements without prematurely ripping or fraying. YKK zippers not only keep water out, but they provide smooth operation for years to come.

    Looking into its storage capabilities, you'll find a fold-down front panel with interior fly keeper and roomy internal compartment for storing multiple fly boxes. Additionally, you'll find a mesh-lined security pocket and external tippet spool holder, as well as dual bottle holders for keeping your favorite beverage close at hand.

    Patagonia hip pack

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my best friend. It has many storage compartments and comes with its own patch to hold flies. The only complaint is he wishes that it was waterproof.

    Little bulky

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Overall, it is a good product and serves the intended purpose well. Despite being a hip pack, it is not diminutive. In fact, it is larger than I expected it to be. The various zippered pockets help to organize gear, but I don’t find the foam inserts that provide bulk to the piece altogether necessary. If Patagonia had left them out, the pack would function as well and would shed some of the unnecessary bulk. The water bottle pockets are decently sized, but shallow enough to hold gear in an accessible fashion when they’re not holding water bottles. I would purchase this item again, but would give consideration to a pack with less foam structure.

    Great for day trips

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Really happy with this purchase and highly recommend it. It got a lot of space to fit multiple fly boxes and I can even stuff a lightweight puffer for when it gets chilly at night. My favorite part about it is the front panel. I pre -load it with my go to streamers and dries for quick changes on the river.

    Durable, convenient

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using this hip pack for years, and the beer holders have made countless people jealous. This pack is big enough for a day on the water, and the hip design keeps everything handy yet out of your way while casting. I've had several friends switch from a sling pack to a hip pack and I always recommend this model.

    cool and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This hip pack is everything that I needed. I like to keep it pretty simple when out fishing. I can hold all my tools and tippet, flies and tons of other things without it feeling over packed. The fold-out front panel with the foam fly holder is really convenient when switching up flies, and the beer holders are a nice touch. I really like this hip pack and I would definitely recommend it if you're in the market for a simple yet functional pack.

    Great Day Pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using this pack for most of the summer and I like it a lot. I find that it is a lot more comfortable than a vest or sling pack. It is really comfortable to wear and carries enough for a 1/2 day of fishing. I don't use the neck strap since the pack says up will on its own on me. Hold .75 liter of water and a snack so I don't have to go back to the truck for a few hours. All necessities for a day of fishing easily fit in the pack. I can get two medium fly boxes in it and a 5wt spool if I push it to its limit. My only complaint is I wish that it has a couple more small attachment points.

    Awesome pack / camera bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Designed for fly fishing, I use it as a camera bag and it works great. It’s stuffed with Canon Eos Rebel T6i with 18-55 lens, two conversion lenses, cleaning gear, manual, and still plenty of room for my phone, keys and a snack. (Sorry, no room with flash attached, not a problem for me). The hard front and padded rear packaged in a lightweight, versatile hip/shoulder pack make this perfect for hiking, cub scouts events, little league games, etc to keep camera, phone, snacks, and other essentials handy while not having to worry about damage. Thanks again, Patagonia, and to Backcountry for the great service!


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using the Stealth series hip pack for years. When my beloved stealth got stolen out of the car earlier this year, Patagonia was kind enough to hook me up with this new version to test out. I have a few days of guiding on it, as well as a lot of personal fishing.

    The main update is the fabric material. Bringing in tech from their Ascenionist/Descensionist pack line the outer fabric is a tough and lightweight Cordura that keeps the weight down, but is really tough. For me the biggest benefit is it makes the pack more pliable and I find that it hugs the body a bit more. I don't like wearing the shoulder strap with these packs so this is a huge advantage to keep the pack in place.

    The pocket configuration is more streamlined and all you need for a day on the river. The hip pockets hold strike indicators or floatant for quick access. I have tried so many packs and vest over the years. While I haven't found the perfect pack, this one is really close for a day of fishing.
