Constructed from 840-denier, abrasion- and puncture-resistant ballistic nylon and then coated with .1mm TPU on both sides of the fabric, the PRO Waterproof Sling 14L fishing bag is at the top of its class. At 14L of storage space capacity-wise, our PRO Waterproof Sling hits a sweet spot between our Guide Sling and standard Sling Pack with added protection from the elements.
The intuitive product design puts your fishing tools and accessories exactly where you expect them to be. Naturally, the pack includes the wildly popular, patented, easy-access Tippet Whippet docking station, now welded onto the fabric instead of sewn in so there’s no possibility of water leakage. Also note the beefy, submersible, easy-slide, #10 TIZIP® MasterSeal zipper, as that one’s critical. With actual teeth that grab and seal, it prevents the dreaded blowout that plagues packs with a sandwich bag-style closure. Gear stays bone dry and access is easy thanks to a generous opening with an interior we’ve brightened up by adding a high-vis chartreuse color.
Orvis has also redesigned the shoulder strap and back panel with perforated 10mm foam padding, decreasing weight and bulk while allowing for better air circulation. In short, the days of the dreaded “misty back” are over.
Deep dive into further features and you’ll find an integrated back panel net scabbard and exterior D-ring, a second, water-resistant accessory pocket with YKK AquaGuard® zipper, water bottle pocket with retention leash, and internal hanging pockets to keep gear organized. The shoulder straps even give you accessory docking stations in a dialed-up sling pack perfect for wet, nasty conditions.
