Simms has made great strides in the line of backpacks and chestpacks.  Wherever you are and whatever you are fishing for, Simms 2009 line of packs and bags provides an integrated solution for carrying crucial gear.  The Headwaters and Dry Creek lines seamlessly interface providing the angler with specialized needs on the water and trail.   For the hike in to a remote river or lake, the new Headwaters Backpack and Day Pack are more than up to the task for large loads.  Simply attach the Headwaters Chest Pack or Dry Creek Chest Pack to the outside of these larger packs and you have ample storage for all of your on-the-water needs.  The Dry Creek Bags are durable enough to go from the bag check to the boat floor without any reshuffling of gear.  The need for an additional bag is gone unless you plan to bring home souvenirs.  Simplicity, speed, convenience and capacity.  The Simms pack and bag systems provide it all.

Simms offers two basic materials for their packs.  The Headwaters line is made from durable 1680 Denier Ballistic Nylon with a DWR finish.

The Dry Creek bags are made from waterproof coated nylon and the zippers are water and corrosion resistant.  The coated nylon is similar to that used on high end pontoon boats and rafts.  They are rugged and you will keep your gear dry.

I needed a backpack to carry my cameras and lenses into the backcountry.  The backpack needed to double as a waterproof camera boat bag too.  I chose the Dry Creek Roll-Top Backpack.  I simply put my cameras and lenses in padded camera cases and dump them into the backpack.  Rain and spray will not enter the pack.  My cameras are safe.  If I need to add a chestpack I can at any time and it will attach to the front of the pack.
