I picked one of these up over the winter and have been using it this spring. It's a great pack for the kayak angler. Equally nice for wading. It's very roomy, adjustable and has inner pockets. Also, it is much more comfortable that a chest pack. Never could see the appeal of the chest pack...too much line tangling. The Dry Creek just twists around my waist, out of the way, when not in use.
