I have a Fishpond chest pack that I use. But of thinking of carrying a stove and the means to make coffee, sandwich etc. What is your favorite fishing backpack?

Both Vedavoo & Zimmerbuilt make excellent packs for tenkara.
I use a Vedavoo Tightline sling pack for most of my tenkara fishing, but a Zimmerbuilt Guide Sling when I want to bring "a little bit more" along for the day.

Not sure what size pack you're looking for to carry your gear, but if the Guide Sling is on the small side for what you are looking for, the Zimmerbuilt Tailwater or Dead Drift...or the Vedavoo Spinner might be what you need. While I don't personally have any of the last 3 packs mentioned, but their build (fabric, zippers, straps) are all excellent. Plus both manufacturers embrace the tenkara community...a definite plus in my eyes.

If your going to be carrying a stove and pot along with water or water filter (recommended), coffee, food and a little fishing gear I would suggest that you pick a pack that has a nice belt for added waist support. Not just a thin strap with a clip this offers minor support, but a nicely padded belt that will distribute the weight and give much better support. Packs with only shoulder straps are inadequate for this type of load. Letting all of these things just hang on your neck and shoulders by only shoulder straps is very tiring throughout an entire day of fishing. Packs in the 18 to 20 liter size are a nice size for a full day with plenty of gear. I use an older version of this Gregory Miwok 18 and I love the pack. This is my version. Image

I got the fishpond piney creek chestpack/backpack combo. I use the backpack if I am on day hikes and need more "stuff", the chestpack only if I am not venturing too far away from the car.

I use this vest from Filson most of the time. It is not too big and carries the essentials nicely. The pocket in the back can carry quite a good bit of stuff without having to carry a backpack or getting in the way when fishing. I usually have a rain jacket and food in the back pocket but I have also carried a small stove back there as well with no problems.

Tenkara USA pouch is awesome. For Longer days when I want to pack snacks, and/or lunch I use Vedavoo.
