New 2014 Simms Headwaters Sling Pack Reviews
Great design Review by Khuong
I have been using this pack for a couple months now and I still like it very much.
The zippers have stiff rings making it easy to open/close with one finger, this will be helpful in cold weather when you have problems gripping items with frozen fingers. Pockets have nice solid tabs to ease sliding in fly boxes. I especially like the stiff outer box that serves as a tray of sort, stores my tippets spool, a fly box, leaders and indicators. Front of the strap has sleeve and holder for your forceps and other tools. A lot of thoughts and research went into the design, highly recommended!
Comfortable and Fits Essential Gear Review by Shaun
I bought the smaller of the two Simms Headwater Sling Packs because I chronically bring more gear than necessary. This smaller pack forced me to bring less gear, but still comfortably fit a jacket, a couple of nymph/dry fly boxes or a streamer box, spare spool, and still left room for the important items like a flask. The small fold down pocket on the outside is great for tippet/leader/floatant storage, and the zinger holders make easy storage/access for nippers and forceps. The pack sits very comfortably on the shoulder, and once I got used to a sling pack, I use it all day and never know its there. Great product well worth the money.
