Orvis sling pack

Anyone tried the Orvis over-the-shoulder- sling pack? Looks like a nice idea for those of us that don't prefer vests and get tired of the line tangling with a front pack.

    YES! I have a tendency to overload my vest with stuff. Last year I started using the sling pack and I love it.

    I've never tried one, but have heard only raves about it. Go for it.

    I like mine as well--for short trips on local streams. It doesn't provide for carrying a water bottle, rain jacket or net. And it precludes wearing a day pack which I can throw on to carry the extra stuff when using my fanny pack.

    It makes for a great lens and camera bag and will hold munchies and water for times of outdoor camera "work", too.

    Are the positive comments above about the original (olive) or the new version (blue)?

    Thanks. I think I'll try one the next time I am near an Orvis store or dealer.
