    I can't seem to find any reviews on the Buck's Bag Deluxe Split Front Chest Pack ... anyone have any comments on it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought the Bass Pro version (copy of the Bucks Bag), and they are great, particularly if you like to use large fly boxes. I used mine for saltwater fishing.

    Two thumbs up.

    Leif,
    I've been using this same chest pack for about 2 years. Here are my thoughts:
    Pros
    -Very durable.
    -Zippers are plastics and have very large "teeth".
    -Design allows for easy entry and exit.
    -Open design does not trap heat on hot days.
    -Big pockets.
    -Rides high so it stays out of the water on deep wades.

    Cons (or, ideas for improvement)
    -Wish it had a platform that drops down in front with a fly box attached. As it is, you have to pull out your fly box and hold it.

    If you have other areas you would like feedback on, send me an email or reply to this message.
    Steve.
