The Tightlines Sling Pack was designed to be the one pack that can cover your needs for 90% of the fishing you do, and refined to make it an ultralight pack (under 10 oz.) that’ll serve you well without sacrificing comfort or function.
Worn over your non-dominant shoulder (left if you’re right handed), the pack rides comfortably in the small of your back. When you need access to your gear, you pull the sling around to the front – where it lies comfortably and level across your chest. This gives you quick and easy access to your tools, flies, and tippet, but keeps your front clean and tangle free while you fish.
Frustrated by other “circular” slings that creep around or flop forward on you, our design was built to stay put on your back. Our offset design connects to the body of the pack at a point above the center of gravity – which means that the weight is already past the point of turn, and must be PULLED around to the front.
Minimalist, but not restrictive, the pack was designed to carry two full size flyboxes from Cliff Outdoors (ideal with a Super Days Worth and a Standard Cliff Flybox) in the integrated gear pouch, and additional needs in the zippered pocket. On top of the zipper pocket is a strip of tool loops to quickly connect your tools for easy access in the center of your chest when the sling is pulled to the front. We suggest using at least four S-Biners (you can get them from us) – they are a great way to clip on your tools, and keep them isolated from the pack so they don’t spin on the loops.
Every pack is hand-built to order in our workshop using 1000D American woven Cordura fabrics and American made hardware, straps, and closures. Even the thread used to sew your pack is American Made. We’re looking forward to building yours!
