I use the Orvis sling pack, works great.
Orvis guide sling pack...... Grrrrrreeaaat!
Apparently the Piscatorial Purse has arrived! I look forward to the high heeled Ecotrax boots for extra deep wading. Some sequins on the lanyards would sure be nice....
I have been wearing my Orvis sling from the day the were introduced and have sold a ton of them at the store. It's perfect if you're a speyfisher, beachfisher or any other flyfisher who doesn't have to carry everything they own.
I got mine from Leland at the Orvis store
I'm glad someone said, "waterproof." That's the one objection to my Orvis pack. It has lost any waterproofing it had so I have to dry it out whenever it gets wet and anything inside gets wet, as well. Does anyone know of a product that can be sprayed on to do the job of waterproofing? Believe it or not, Amway used to have a product called Dry Fab that would have done it but they stopped making it, to my knowledge.
I switch between the Orvis sling and a waist pack. Seems like I always end up deep enough to get the waist pack
wet so prefer the sling for that reason. Haven't ruined a cell phone or camera yet as I try to remember to keep
those in the front pocket of my waders. Maybe Ive's new high heeled boot idea has some merit after all!
Try this waterproofing. http://www.alwaysdry.net/whats-the-best-waterproof-spray-in-the-world
Mine is still drying from yesterday but then the insides are separated by ziploc bags.
I have been using the patagonia sling pack for awhile now and absolutely love it. There is a waterproof pocket inside for phone, etc. There's only one thing I would change, and it's minor. I would put two zippers on the main compartment just like the front pocket, but that's just me being nitpicky!
I don't know... kind'a reminds me of a man purse
Hey, if a vest was good enough for Lee Wulff, they are certainly good enough for me
I think calling a sling a purse is like calling a kilt a skirt. Technically true but usually not considers gateway cross dressing.
I am waiting for the bandoleer, I could get two and wear them in a crisscross pattern with a bandanna buff, a Seattle sombrero and a rain poncho. The border patrol agents I see in my area won't know what to think.
Oh yeah cigars in the bandoleer..
GAT if.this does not become a cartoon I'm gonna call you a slacker
get the atom sling pack by patagonia have one and is the best thing since sliced bread!
I would get the atom sling instead
Patagonia is coming out with a waterproof sling for the fall based on the Atom. I've never been a fan of any of the existing waterproof slings, so stay tuned to see how it will measure up.
Man i just got this one this spring. Damn oh well i like it so much i will have to get a new one and give this one to the wife.
