Have had my Guide pack for almost two months. Had the original sling pack, but it was too small so I sent it back and got a refund. Not too long after, the Guide pack came! Wallah! Picked up the Guide pack and was impressed with the improvements.
Very high quality, looks great and plenty of room for 3 larger fly boxes, a GoPro, a few sandwiches, water bottle, even an extra spol or two!
I give it 9/10 for performance because I think they can still improve on the inside compartments. The main compartment should have more zippered compartments on the sides....that would make this pack absolutely perfect!

I bought the normal Guide pack, not the fully loaded and the plastic spool holder was included on my pack. I like it as well, but wonder how long it will last. It doesn't seem too rugged but is still a great holder.
