surprised me.

the store manager recommended that to me once, i said, "won't it just fall apart?" he laughed and said, "bring it back and we'll just give you a new one."

I really like this pack, but it is expensive.


Hadn't seen this one before, looks pretty interesting. You're not kidding about expensive, though. You can get a full size waterproof boat bag for that price.

What about a sling pack? I think I remember someone talking about those once before. You can slide them from back to front when you need to get things out and can slide it higher up near your shoulder for deeper water.

I have the Fishpond Waterdance pack. If I am going to be in water over my waist I just wear it like a chest pack....so far so good that way.

Boy that Sage is a special kind of expensive. I like the concept of the large waist pack but know perfectly well I would fill it to capacity and it would constantly be falling down. That is another problem of attaching a net to a waist bag, the weight. I am pretty happy about the alternate attachment method discussed in another thread. The one thing I don't like about the water proof Simms is the lack of water bottle holders. I solved that yesterday by getting a fishpond bottle holder that attaches to the belt.

Why are you wading that deep? If your that deep in a river your asking for trouble. Cast farther and mend better or forget the fish.

Agree with Bruno.

I go over my waist occasionally in a crossing or what have you, but I almost never have to stand waist deep to fish in flowing water. That's just common wading safety IMO.

For lakes and ponds, a fly box, a spool of tippet, and some hemos is enough.

I don't see this as a real problem, honestly.

I don't go chest deep either, but wearing a waist bag that hangs down, you frequently get in that deep. That results in the issues OP presents. Having said that, the Simms bag holds up well to this level of exposure, but I don't think any bag is going to be happy with full immersion for extended periods. Additionally, that thing would float like a blimp!

I hate myself for not buying the old one when on clearance. When they change the color back to something reasonable and clear current uglies out I will get one of those.

Mine was practically free thanks to the free gift card at orvis PM's grand opening + 25 off 50 coupon.

I love it.
