I'm just curious what most people carry in their fanny packs or vests when they fish, also which do they prefer vest or pack?
I'm currently carrying a hip pack as I found the previous sling pack I had made my right shoulder sore, although I probably packed too much in the sling and have yet to try one that is ambidextrous so you can switch sides. I will see how the hip pack works out. I may end up turning to the full on backpack but i'm hoping the hip pack will suffice. I typically pack 2-3 small fly boxes, two bags of pre-made leaders, various sink tips, split shot, gloves, barb pliers...on the outside I have a water bottle holder, tippet holder, extra rod holder, on the strap I have nippers w zinger, hemos. I like to carry my wading jacket and some layers but with the hip pack that is not possible. I may have no choice but to go back to a sling or backpack eventually. Find what works for you....which unfortunately involves some trial and error.
