Patagonia Double Haul users?
Sigh...yes, another fishing pack question thread. I have to apologize right from the top...but I also would love to hear from any owners of the Patagonia Double Haul sling style pack.
I admit I have a small "pack fetish" - back packs, day packs, specialty fishing packs - but I am also pretty cheap and don't like to just consume for the sake of consuming. I have been using a Fishpond Waterdance guide pack for 3 or 4 years. It's ok, but lacking.
What I really want is the ability to carry water easier, a rain jacket/layer and some food as well as the fishing essentials within easy reach. This sling looks like it could this...but I've never seen one.
Will the back "pack" part of the sling carry a layer, water and smashed PB&J, jerky, snickers? Does the front carry more than one fly box?
I'm not looking for a bunch of recommendations on everyone's individual favorite piece. Just comments on this one item.
