Patagonia Stealth Hip Pack 11L

This 11L hip pack offers enough capacity for fishing essentials but won’t interfere with your cast. It’s made for anglers who want to move fast and light on the water.

The Stealth pack has a large main compartment, two zippered pockets on the hips, and a sleeve for a water bottle. Inside, there are some slots for organizing fly boxes and a removable waterproof pouch.

One of our fly fishing editors tested it on a recent trip to Jackson, Wyo., and loved the comfort. “I usually wear a sling pack, but after a long day on the water, my shoulder gets tired and sore. I wanted to try a hip pack and was stoked I did. The pack is super comfy and seems durable enough to hold up for years of bushwhacking,” he said.

“My favorite feature is the sleeve to hold a net. The external pockets on the hips are also great for storing floatant, indicators, chapstick, etc.”
