Fishpond Switchback Wading Belt & Fishing Waist Pack System



Fishpond has been turning the fly fishing industry on its head with innovation and change since their first year. As they approach the 20-year mark, it's only natural to rethink the functionality of something as simple as a wading belt.

Fishpond Switchback Wading Belt and Fishing Waist Pack Features

The Switchback includes a pack that slides independently from back to front, for easy in-and-out access. A molded net holster for long-handled nets, a shoulder strap with tool and fly attachment, and options to attach the Fishpond Thunderhead water bottle holder, and Quikshot fly rod holder round out this functional and purposeful fishing waist pack. The system is flexible enough that it can be worn with vests, chest packs or other gear of choice.
