This sling pack is new for 2016 and I just picked one up a month ago. So far I've got to say this is looking like it's going to be one of my favorite sling packs for fly fishing. The storage is well organized and the fold out work bench is great. One of my favorite features is how you can adjust the straps so that it rides higher on your back. Since I'm rather short this helps keep the sling pack out of the water and my gear dry when wading through deep water as opposed to some others I've used.
Shoulder a full load in comfort thanks to Simms’ ultra-light, high-volume Waypoints Sling Pack. PU-coated 420D nylon Oxford and 210D nylon HT Dobby fabrics are tenacious through tough conditions, while patterned shoulder and side secure straps ensure balanced fit and comfort. Additional benefits include a U-shaped zippered opening for easy-access to the 17-liter main compartment. A sturdy fold-down workbench, with tippet tender and floatant/shake holder, makes for seamless fly transitions. Tap magnetic tool ports for easy access to pliers and more. Exterior compression straps add storage. And safely store sunglasses in the top zippered pocket.
