The FRONT PACK BLACK EDITION from Hotfly is an ideal chest pack for fly fishing and spinning. It allows you to carry a lot of equipment with you while ensuring comfort and freedom of movement. The high-quality, water-repellent fabric and seams allow you to fish in the rain without any problems. The honeycomb weave on the shoulder straps gives it a unique look that sets it apart from all other products of its kind.
There are 4 zipped pockets (2 on each side). The 2 main pockets are very spacious and can hold even large fly boxes. Inside there are 2 net compartments , where you can store all your equipment. The other two pockets are slightly smaller and flat, but can still hold a small fly box.
In the Hotfly FRONT PACK BLACK EDITION there are 12 tool holders:
- 4 textile strings
- 2 tool-tabs
- 1 clip with spring
- 1 tippet dispenser
- 1 bottle holder
- 1 fly box
- 1 fly patch
- 1 D-ring for the net
The fabric strings and tool-tabs are very useful for attaching any type of accessory. Both have excellent stitching and are made from robust materials, ensuring you don't lose your tools along the way.
The clip with spring is designed for attaching the line clipper. This is an essential accessory in fly fishing and should always be conveniently at hand.
The remaining accessories, namely:
- tippet dispenser
- bottle holder
- fly box
- fly patch
are all fitted with a Velcro attachment, allowing you to modulate their placement on the 2 large Velcro surfaces on the front of this pack. This is a very interesting solution because it also gives you the possibility to choose the accessory holders to use, leaving what you don't need at home.
At the back there is the classic D-ring for the net. In the specific case of this pack, the net becomes fundamental for a question of comfort because it counterbalances the pack which, not having any weight at the back, would tend to fall forward, making it a little uncomfortable to use.
The zips are made by YKK, a leading company in this field. These zips slide smoothly, even after extreme and prolonged use. When closed, a plastic sheath completely covers the zippers to prevent water from seeping in if fishing in the rain.
Each zip is equipped with a handy rubber ring that makes it much easier to open or close the pockets. There is also a small tab to grip with the hand opposite the one used to open the zip to be able to hold the pack in place and facilitate the opening of the pocket.
The back straps are adjustable, allowing you to adapt it to any body size. In addition, the front closure is available with either a zip or an adjustable strap. This is very useful because it allows you to wear the Hotfly FRONT PACK BLACK EDITION over a windbreaker or a simple T-Shirt, easily adapting to both situations. The shoulder straps and the entire shoulder area are equipped with comfortable padding for maximum comfort.
