"Very handy and useable pack. There are 3 zippable pockets for carrying a variety of items. The straps are can easily be adjusted to the right lengths. The zippers are easy to use and everything is made of quality materials. I am using it as a camera and tote bag for an upcoming trip to Boston and DC. My large SLR camera will fit perfectly with the lens detached and the lens fits nicely next to it. I am also a fisherman and could see using it for fishing and/or hiking."

"Plenty of room and the space can be utilized different ways. It can also be supported by the neck, my preference, or on the hip. Zippers are perfect for quick opening and closing with one hand."

Great Quality, Tons of Space,

"I purchased this to try something other than a vest. For some reason, I'm the type that carries every fly box onto the water with me (even though I'll only open one), and the vest was getting bulky!
The design of the bag overall is very thoughtful. Although our water is hard in WI this time of year, this seems like exactly what I was looking for!
My only complaint is that the straps are made for very tall people. Even at the smallest adjustment, the bag hung by my belt.My father, who is a larger man than I, also found this pack to hang too low for comfort. To remedy this, I used the small padded strap for my neck and one of the webbing straps to go around my waist.
While this isn't a deal breaker, it's something to be aware of.
Overall, I'm very happy with the pack and can't wait to get on the water!

"I like my new chest Pack and plan to use it for salt water fishing in hot weather. It looks perfect for the job.
I have to say that a diagram with some images of the assembled item would have been nice. It comes with two sets of straps but doesn't show how they are used. The diagram and some labels could have also helped to show how the compartments and pouches are to be used.

"I boughit this vest pack after reading other reviews and now use it exclusively without needing to use a wading vest. I find it large enough to hold all I need with me on the river, and I find it easier to organize all my bits and pieces. My one small criticism would be that the neck strap an feel a little uncomfortable after several hours fishing - no big deal but I feel sure the Orvis designers can tweak this feature to improve the design."

"I recently purchased a chest pack from another company and I wasn't satisfied with the quality. So I sent it back and went to Orvis's consistent quality products and ordered the standard chest pack. Great pack , materials, stiching, design and all the little bells and whistles that are incorporated into this pack make it a " standard " Orvis quality product."

Perfect for what I was looking for!,
August 28, 2011
By: WYfisher
"It will hold just the right amount of fly boxes, leaders and needed stream side tools. I plan to use it more as a fanny pack than a chest pack and it will work great attached to the Orvis backpack when I ride into the WY wilderness. The material is very tough. Not sure yet how the tool material is going to hold up with safety pin type connectors on the retracting spools. Great buy!!"

All the features you need but room for improvement,

"This pack has plenty of storage room, plenty of pockets and cubby holes to store stuff, and plenty of internal velcro space to attach things. The handwarmer and hemostat pockets are clever and there is very little to catch your fly line. If there is one complaint about this pack it is that the neck padding could be larger and more comfortable.
Overall, a very good pack that I intend to use for a long time."

Really like this pack,

"I purchased this along with a Safe Passage day pack for hiking trips. I have been so happy with this set up. As someone who has used the heck out of the Safe Passage Sling pack I was a bit hesitant to try a chest pack without the ability to sling it over to the back. After using this a couple times, I'm pleasantly surprised how comfortable and convenient it is. It hangs just right to be both easy to access and out of the way when wading waist deep water. The storage is more than adequate for all my fishing accessories. I also appreciate the heck out of the net attachment on the back of the neck strap. It's the perfect place to hang a net and, like many others have mentioned, the one down side of the sling pack.
This pack attaches very securely to the day pack. I would highly recommend any fisherman take a look at this by itself for a standard outing, or as a pair with the Day Pack for the hiking fisherman."
