Introducing the new PRO Waterproof Packs. Waterproof. Airtight. UV-Blocking. Abrasion-and puncture-resistant. Constructed from 840-denier ballistic nylon then coated with .1mm TPU on both sides of the fabric, we’ve designed each pack in the new PRO Waterproof Pack lineup to keep your gear easy to access and safe from any and all elements in real-world fishing scenarios. Bonus: They’re plenty handsome too.

Why We Made It

Certain things are inevitable when it comes to fishing. Getting wet is one of those things. Whether it’s a deluge from the skies, an unseen hole below, a slippery bank, or a good old-fashioned plunge, if you get wet, your gear’s going along for the swim. It’s why our product developers took a long, hard look at our fishing-pack lineup and realized, as solid as it was, one crucial detail was missing: the ability to dunk these bags and have the gear inside remain dry. Our new PRO Waterproof Packs check that box (and a few others).

1. The PRO Waterproof Backpack sits comfortably on your hips thanks to its wider lumbar strap and, with a 30L capacity, carries everything you need. 2. Storage inside, workspace topside; our PRO Waterproof Boat Bag pulls double-duty on board and stows neatly out of the way. 3. Come on in, the water’s fine; our PRO Waterproof Sling lets you get a little deeper when traversing the flats. 4. The PRO Waterproof Hip Pack holds an impressive 10L of gear, distributes weight evenly, and won’t impinge your cast.

No Holes About It

Our Tippet Whippet is welded onto the fabric of our PRO Waterproof Hip Pack instead of sewn in, so there’s no possibility of water infiltration.
