Why We Like The Dry Creek Z 8L Hip Pack

Crafted with a rough-and-tumble 420D ripstop, TPU-coated fabric, the Dry Creek Z Hip Pack from Simms features a welded construction, and is closed with a water-tight Truzip zipper, to keep us wading out in dry comfort. Interior stretch mesh pockets securely stow our nymph and dry fly boxes, and the centered net holster frees our hands up for the hike in. The hip is padded with breathable cushioning to help minimize lower back sweat, and a cross-body strap ensures the bag stays where we want it all day long.

Nicely done.

Perfect for hitting the river when you want to go light. Waterproof for phone etc. A hip pack designed by fisherman. If had a suggestion it would be to make the bottle pouch a bit larger in diameter. My Yeti 24oz Rambler is a bit tight. First world problems... :)

Fanny pack

Nice product and well built. Hope Simms can make one a bit bigger in the future. This bag also seems to prevent falling in the river to fully test it waterproof integrity. But been through plenty rainstorms and wet days to test fully. Cheers.

Great pack for all conditions. .

Just did my first flats trip with the pack, it held everything I needed for a grand slam and kept my phone and wallet dry in some rainy and windy conditions. Definitely a better pack than my last one, the dry zipper is genius!

Great pack! I’ve had mine for a few years now and it has always been nice to have. My only suggestion to buyers is to get the new model or buy a belt net holder.

I like the size it holds the boxes I need to carry, I have found I prefer the waist pack over my sling, I find it easier for access

Very functional

Great at being water proof. Room inside is plentiful. Would have enjoyed separators to help organize contents but it works well and easy to use!

Nice fishing tackle bag

It's a nice tackle bag waterproof and everything like that comfortable to wear but the main zipper is a little hard to open
