Paul M Warmbier swears by the chest tackle pack on the river. A few years back, I served in the Marine Corps Infantry, and really loved wearing chest rigs to hold all my Radios, Ammunition, Grenades, etc.. right up close on my chest where I needed it. When I go fishing I have always really disliked wearing vests, backpacks and other contraptions for all my fishing equipment. I really missed having everything right in front of me, like I did with my Combat Chest Rigs. Once I found it, I will only wear the Filson Tackle Pack. It is convenience, quality, and functionality at its best.
