    I’m a California living flyfisherman but born and raised in Bellingham, WA where Dryft has roots. I’ve been following Dryft products for a while and decided to pull the trigger on this waterproof backpack. I tried on many others including the fishpond, and patagonia stormfront. Great packs but the Dryft has features I couldn’t say no to. 1.) I’m able to carry water and coffee in yeti bottles via the bottle holders on side without taking off pack. Score. 2.) love the exterior pocket with 2 zips separate from main compartment. Great for extra flyboxes or easy reach items. 3.) Excellent insert in main compartment to load up night before. I hold extra reel, tippet, gear, valuables, etc. All stays dry. 4.) Rod tube holder is great and awesome for going to into backcountry with 2 rods. I will be using this primarily steelheading while wading and on my pontoon boat. I recommend this pack, as I just used in down pour and bushwhacking. Bulletproof and dry so far. Lastly, you can’t beat the price compared to other major brands. Thanks Dryft.

    I was born and raised in SW Alaska where I make my home and also guide. I decided to try the pack as I used the waders for a season of guiding and loved the comfort and durability. To say I’m a big fan is an understatement, as this pack did all that it was supposed to and more. I use this pack for fly outs to small streams where we hike to locations and a good fitting pack is a must. What I like most about it is the shoulder straps and how much support they have. They are wide enough to destribute the load without digging in and fit my wide shoulders much better than the other competitors packs. Carrying extra water and lunches for two clients along with all the rods, sat phone, reels, fly boxes, and safety equipment is easily done with this pack and the design makes it comfortable all day long. As soon as a hip pack is available I’m in for that as well. Thanks for a quality product and amazing customer service.

    When I was in the market for a pack to take steelhead fishing in the winter making sure it would keep my gear dry was number one priority. Before purchasing this pack I had no previous experience with Dryft or their products. With out being able to see/touch this pack in person the purchase was a leap of faith. When it arrived I was immediately blown away at how rugged the material feels. Straight up bombproof. I love the dual zipper on the front which shockingly can hold way more than I had expected. The padding on the back doesn’t hold water when submerged which is also huge! love the idea of mesh water bottle side pockets. Why don’t more companies off that??? I see the newer version of this pack has some daisy chain attachment points on it which I would absolutely love to have on my older version but it’s still awesome with out. The rod holding straps are great and super sturdy. This is my only experience with the gear Dryft makes and to say the least I’m a fan and want to spread the word as much as possible. With a backpack this rugged it makes me want to check out their waders as well. For $150 I’ll take this over other Roll top bags (of lesser quality) and the day they create a zip top bag I’ll be the first to buy that as well. Keep up the good work!

    I received this as a present for Christmas 2019 and love it. I had been using a Orvis sling pack which I really liked because it is comfortable and functional. However, it is not waterproof and I always prefer backpacks with two straps to a single strap for when I am doing more hiking. I have used it a couple times and works great for on the stream. The removable insert is a lot bigger then I thought it was. Unfortunately int he picture there is nothing else to compare so you can quite see how big it is. It is roughly (10-1/2″X16″) so you can fit a lot in there. I put my multi tool indicators, split shot, leaders, and tippet. It’s also got a padded sleeve so you could even put a laptop in there depending on the size of your laptop. The bottle holders on both side are key (I was volunteering for PHW and was able to hold onto my water bottle and the veteran’s water). Also the straps have a buckle so you can easily access your backpack on the stream. Dryft did a good video on some of the features so you should definitely watch it. I used this on a trip where it rained all day and everything stayed dry. I can’t wait to go back out so I can use it again. I feels like very sturdy construction and I have no concerns taking this through some brushy areas.

    The best pack I’ve owned. I have continued to use regular backpacks for my trips and I got tired of having to dry my gear after most of my trips. I bought this bag right before my first outing to the OP this past December and was absolutely flabbergasted. We timed it wrong (work wanted different days), the rivers were about to reach flood stage because of heavy rains. We had to cross some sections, and I actually managed to slip and fully submerge myself. To my surprise everything was as dry as when I put it in.
