When the fish puts up a good fight, give a good fight back without worrying about your gear getting wet.
A completely welded 100% waterproof sling pack designed for versatility and world class performance.
After a long day of horizontal rain or pounding tropical storms, the last thing you want to do is spend the evening unpacking your vest or bag to dry everything out. It’s even worse when saltwater is involved and you have to rinse it all first. So Patagonia built the Stormfront® Sling with 100% waterproof welded construction, exterior PU and interior single-side TPU-coated nylon and a burly, waterproof TIZIP® zipper to keep dry stuff dry, no matter what. Think of it as a handy waterproof boat bag that rides comfortably across your shoulder for deep wading and long fishing sessions. Features include grab handles, rod tube holders, D-ring net attachment, easy-access external pocket, internal zippered mesh pocket, 3-D spacer mesh backing on pack and sling strap. Guaranteed 100% waterproof.

Doesn't quickly convert to the front; you're pretty much limited to wearing it on your back. Everything else about the Stormfront Sling 20L is superior: great T zipper handle, completely waterproof, and large enough to carry everything you need.
A great add-on while in the river or stream...plenty of space inside to add your gear...I keep some extra tops in mine. Inside pockets are lacking ..but I like that..Inside I add small containers and cases for all my goodies. Once I stumbled into the water and used this to keep me floating upwards..worked great..could be used as a floatation device...??? Got this on sale at Stillwater...it was a great deal and free shipping also! Have to mention this is a tuff bag..the material reminds me of a heavy duty rubber/canvas tent material..
Fully waterproof but lacks functional interior storage organization. A few pockets but that's it. Overall very well constructed and can hold everything you need; great for a full day on the water.
