Enough of all this bickering. I personally don't care if a "fly" has a propeller, plastic head, or a light up tail. As long as I can cast it with a fly rod that's all that matters. Maybe the this Mississippi trip is getting to me? Anyway back to the post at hand...
Notice anything about the chest pack above? Look closely.
Still don't see it? That's because they're not there.
Zippers that is.
William Joseph has has taken years to develop this system of magnets as a supreme closure system. This patent pending technology utilizes a system to extrude rare earth magnets, thus allowing them to be sewn completely around all openings on a fishing pack, and eliminating the need for zippers, which in my opinion has been the major problem with chest packs contributing to snags of your fly line. Not to mention it's about three times as fast opening and closing your pack.
I've been using this pack in the Mag Series of WJ's line now for about a month and I can honestly say it's easily the best chest pack I've ever used and maybe one of the true advances in the fly fishing gear this year. I'm not one to go on and on about a product, but this is one you have to at least give give a passing glance. Check out William Joseph's entire line here.
Does anyone out there use chest packs? What about vests? Hip packs? What do you guys like and why? I tend to go back and forth between hip and chest packs. I left the vest years ago for the old timers like Deeter to use...it's just to much stuff to lug around.
