Default Fishpond vs Orvis

I have a Fishpond arroyo chest pack and it's fine for when I'm fishing small streams but when I go trout fishing on big rivers where I need to take all of my boxes and extra spools, I run out of room. I also fish for bass and redfish frequently where i need to carry a cliff bugger beast or bugger beast jr.

So basically, I need a bigger pack and I was looking at a sling pack. Between the Orvis Guide Sling and the Fishpond Westwater Sling and I was looking for your opinions on which would better suit my needs. I mostly fish for bass but trout are a close second. I would like something that's pretty rugged because it's really muddy where i bass fish. I also need something that will hold a big fly box.

I like to carry a net around with me when trout fishing so which it the best for that?

thanks for your advise
