I have been wanting to get away from using a vest in the mountains. I always carry way more gear than I need. I want to cut down to the basics, such as just 1 fly box, an extra pack of leaders, some tippet, split shot and floatant. I have been looking at some of the Fishpond products and really like the San Juan chestpack. I was wondering if anyone has used this or any of the other Fishpond products and how do you like them? Any other suggestions on ways to downsize and carry less would also be great!
