Patagonia Guidewater Packs

Submersible backpack for all types of fishing venues.

We play in a wet environment, but we tend to carry a lot of stuff we’d like to stay dry. Patagonia’s new Guidewater Backpack is a 29L waterproof and submersible pack for your phone, camera, laptop, lunch, fly boxes, and whatever else you need to stay dry. This is the pack for wading the clear dorado rivers of Bolivia, stalking bonefish flats in the Bahamas, or hiking into a remote corner of Yellowstone National Park. Every single day, there’s a chance you could swim, and an even greater chance you’ll need to ride out a downpour.

The updated zipper is waterproof, dustproof, and slides easily, with a much wider opening than Patagonia’s previous waterproof backpack, so it’s easier to extract what you need. Exterior holsters allow you to easily carry a net and also strap a rod tube  or a wading staff securely. My favorite part of this pack is the laptop/tablet pocket, and a zippered interior stash pocket that helps keep you organized. With the pocket stowed, it’s perfect for passports or cash on long trips. Patagonia also smartly designed the stash pocket so you can affix it to the outside so you don’t have to open the zipper to access fly boxes and other accessories while you’re fishing. $300, patagonia.com
