Can’t decide between a traditional fishing vest and sling pack? Neither could Patagonia. They combined the two for a best-of-both-worlds solution. Patagonia's Vest Front Sling features their vertical-pocket vest configuration on one side, with a larger storage pack (like their Stealth Atom Sling) on the other. Access to either is simple; just swing the side you want around to the front without having to take it off. External nylon utility keeper provides secure attachment point for zingers while a selection of easy-access pockets keeps the stuff you need handy. Inside, there’s a range of organizing pockets, a 100% waterproof, welded security pouch and enough room for lunch, jacket and extra fly boxes.
