Simms’ Dry Creek® Backpack combines fully waterproof performance with tenacious features built for extended, gear-intensive fishing excursions. 420D fabric improves durability and safely shields internals via a secure roll-top closure. Exterior u-shaped zippered pockets with interior stretch mesh houses gear you need in a hurry. An inside zippered pocket has ample space for leaders, lines, and tippets. Exterior stretch-mesh water-bottle pockets add versatility and a rod tube-sleeve with a net carrying D-ring and drawcord cinch to preserve your fishing essentials. Calculated for heavy cargo, an ergonomically-shaped shoulder harness with sternum strap and tunneled load lifters bolster comfort in conjunction with a closed-cell padded back panel and a tuck-away waist belt. Additional details include retractor and hemos magnetic docking station, a loop field for retired flies, built-in webbing keepers on compression straps for a streamlined no-catch finish, and Catch & Release system compatibility with Waypoints® Convertible Chest and Chest Pack.
