Default question for the ones with Fishpond packs

im sure some of you all have the fishpond packs like the high Country pack if the backpack comes off? i havent had a chace to look at one and was lookin at them online and look like great packs....but would be really nice if the backpack wasnt needed that it could be taken off and the shoulder straps still used

thanks for the link Luke. This statement in the ad tells me they do come apart...
The two components can be worn together or separately, so you decide how much gear to carry.

While I'm generally a vest kinda guy, looking thru the designs I like the look of that Double Haul pack. Not as much bulk in front as the first one in your link.

yea seems kind of bulky but i do like the center packs like that cause i can open them and sit my rod on it and retie a tippet or fly and not have to get the rod in the water or drop it or anything like that...i know that pack comes apart where you can use the front pack only but its with a neck strap and im not sure how much i would like that...thats why i was askin if just the backpack part came off and the shoulder straps stay on it...i have a cheap cabelas pack that i have had for quite a few years and thats how it is and it works really good like that...jsut not designed very well in my opinion thats the main reason i was wondering...ill have to look at one of them the next time im at the fly shop
