Re: simms pro guide waist pack on sale
I purchased this from Cabela's when it was $70. The waist belt does tuck away so you can use it as a sling pack or just to get the belt out of the way when storing, hauling in the truck etc. I finally got a chance to use it Friday while wading. I was concerned about dunking it but never got that deep. It will hold quite a bit and I packed it, I was able to get the belt tight enough that it didn't bounce or sag too much. The only problem with this was it was a little too tight to spin around to get into it. I started with it behind be and ended up leaving it at my left side. It never really got in my way and getting my fly boxes out was not a problem. Getting at leaders or other things may take a little more fiddling but generally when you are getting at that you are taking more time that simply switching flies. I think it will end up working out good and I definitely did not miss my vest.
