Customer Reviews for Gale Force Chest Pack
Review 1 for Gale Force Chest Pack
September 21, 2012
"When I started transferring my "stuff" from my old chest/waist pack to the Gale Force Chestpack, I noticed a couple of things -
1. There were no Velcro straps or anything else with which to hold my rod while retrieving items from my pack or dealing with releasing a fish.
2. More inside pockets would be helpful in dealing with small items - perhaps on both sides of the inside of the pack, which would yield 4 separate spaces to hold items.
Otherwise, this is a terrific Chestpack! Holds double what my old one could hold and less weight at that."

Review 2 for Gale Force Chest Pack
More versatile than other chest packs,
February 24, 2012
from Baltimore, MD
"Although a bit pricey, this bag has several key advantages, all having to do with versatility: 1. It can be easily used as a sling-type bag. I am often annoyed with my other chest pack getting in the way of my casting (line hand). So this pack I can sling around to my rear hip; 2. The interior is very commodious---I fish fresh and salt, warm and cold, and need space for larger boxes. I can get 2 in this bag. The simplicity of the design of the interior is a real plus, here, and of the overall bag deceptive---doesn't look like much but that winds up being a virtue; 3. It's got lots of small, subtle features that are really great, like the magnets and the tabs for forceps; 4. While not an underwater bag, it's waterproof enough for the contents to survive a dunking and will float if knocked out of the boat/kayak long enough for retrieval. It's my go-to bag now."
