I got this pack a few months ago and really like it a lot. I'm very please with the new tippet system it's the best yet in my opinion. If you've not seen one yet you need to. It's like the new version of the Gear Bag Chest. There plenty of storage for everything I need and everything I don't. The one thing that I sill wish that they would improve is instead of having the clips on either side that you have to fumble with all the while looking like a monkey. It should just be a strong magentic closure in my opinion. Other than a little struggle buckling the straps each time to put it on, it's great. Weight is distributed very well. Can fish all day and not feel sore from pack. I'd give this pack a 4.9 of 5. You won't be displeased with this one. Another great design from Willy J.
