Take a wading belt and give it steroids is a great explanation of this new system.
Fishpond has been flipping the fly fishing industry upside down since their beginning in terms of innovation and improvement. For their 20th anniversary Fishpond felt the need to keep that change coming. The creation of the new Fishpond Switchback Wading Belt System did exactly that. Take a wading belt and give it steroids is a great explanation of this new system. This new system includes a pack that slides independently from back to front, a molded net holster for long-handled nets, a shoulder strap with a tool and fly attachment and options to attach our new molded wading staff pouch, drink holder, and Quickshot rod holder. This wading belt system is functional and purposeful. Can be worn with a variety of other packs, vests, gear options of your choosing. The Switchback Wading Belt System won 2018s IFTD Best of Show "Chest Pack / Vest" award.
