Default Best Vest - Pack Combination?

I'm looking for a vest-pack combination for warm weather tours. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I am considering the following:

- Umpqua Swiftwater Tech Vest + Surveyor 1100
- Patagonia Sweet Pack Fly Fishing Vest
- Fishpond Wildhorse Tech Pack
- William Joseph Exodus

Any advice would be welcome!

I've used the Fishpond Double haul for those "long time gone" trips. I can get a weeks worth of stuff in it and the detachable chest pouch keeps all relevant stuff right there where you need it. I have a Simms Guide vest to look cool in Jackson Wyo! I have been using an Orvis Sling Pack recently and am trying to teach an old dog new tricks. I like it because I can use it over my wading jacket and I'm left handed and it works perfect for me.

I recently ordered the Simms Large Sling Pack (didnt get it yet) to give it a try, but I dont know whether its big enough to hold everything for a longer trip... no rod tube holder, right?

Not sure if this is close enough to what you're looking for, but there's a Fishpond Piney Creek Tech Pack for sale in the classified section of the forum.
