I own both large and small of the Orvis packs and they definitely do their job but my favorite sling by far is the Simms waypoints large.

Simms Waypoints Sling Pack Large
This sling packs for fly fishing image shows the Simms Waypoint sling pack, large version in green.
The Simms Waypoints Sling Pack includes a handy fold-down workbench.

We think the best overall Simms sling pack option is its Waypoints sling pack, which comes in two sizes. The large is 27 liters. You get the Simms fold-down workbench as well as a tippet tender and floatant holder, plus magnetic tool ports for easy access to pliers or forceps. The large has plenty of pocket space for all-day trips on the river, plus it has compression adjustment straps that let you suck up extra space when you don’t need it. These straps can also be used to secure a rain jacket or rod tube. Overall, the Waypoints Large is a versatile, well-built, can’t-go-wrong sling pack. Highly recommended.

I bought a(small in Army Green) Simms Waypoints Sling Pack last summer. At first I did not like it but with some experimentation with my tools and the content location I really like it now. It carries all I need as long as I don't go crazy and just carry the essentials. When on my back I hardly even notice it. The work station is nice. I even figured out a way to attach my net. I can recommend this pack. I never tried the large version but assume it would work just as well or better having a little more room for maybe a light raincoat.
