The Best Chest Packs for Outdoors

Allen Boulder Creek Fishing Chest Pack

Many of our fishing chest packs are tailored for fly fishing, but we feel the Boulder Creek Chest Pack is a great choice for not only fly fishing but also fishing of all kinds especially spin fisherman who fish from the shore.  It features a zip down work station with tipped tender and fly patch that can also be used for extra line and lure storage. The padded neck strap comes with a net D-ring, and the pack also has multiple exterior D-rings for holding your accessories. High-viz lining helps you find your accessories, and multiple interior storage pockets help keep you organized. Holds up to 6 small tackle boxes. Heavy-duty molded zippers.

FishPond Thunderhead Chest Pack

We like the FishPond Thunderhead because of the versatility of this chest pack.  It has all of the compartments and attach points you need for all your fly fishing tools.  The versatility comes from being able to use as a chest pack, attached to a FishPond backpack, mounted to a wading belt or attached to a boat.  The pack is completely waterproof and can be used to protect your phone or small camera while out fishing.

The Thunderhead Chest Pack delivers a waterproof carry system created to purposefully load all of the essential gear for a day on the water, including a net holster that seats your long or short handled net perfectly. Bring along what you need, instead of what you have. While it’s a great standalone piece, it also integrates into our backpacks and can be lashed to your boat providing quick secure storage for wet rides.
