Yeah...not a chance. I have been wearing a lumbar pack with a shoulder strap the last 15 years. I always have to spin it around to access and always have it around the back when fishing. I just hope the sling is the next step up and stay more dry.Troutbitten makes a convincing case for the Simms G3 vest instead of a sling or pack. But 250 bucks is a lot of money.
