Running Pack to fit fishing gear +?

Postby Fueco » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:51 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on a pack that will hold fishing gear, water filter, food, and basic gear for a 10-15 mile trail run? I'm looking for something that I can run comfortably with, but can carry gear so I can do some high country fishing on remote lakes.

I have several running packs, but none are big enough to hold the rod (I have a Rhodo).

I've personally have had excellent results using the Ultimate Direction SJ Ultra (2014 edition) which even has some cuben fiber that I am very familiar with from backpacking.

Front Bottle Pockets: one has Katadyn Befree for drinking the obviously clean stream water, other has my Tacky Day Box
Left & right Shoulder Pockets: Line Holder, tippet, mitten clamp with scissors, nippers attached to loop with swivel
Hip Pockets: First Aid, Fishing License, ID, Doggie Poo Bags (often bring my Whippet).
Backpack Lashing: Rod, can use elastic loop at bottom to slip around grip and wrap within sock cord of lashing.
Inside Backpack: Varies on the expedition, sometimes lunch, rain/wind shell (sometimes), gorillapod tripod sometimes, etc.

Hope this was helpful!

I love my GORUCK GR1. They're pricey but bombproof with a lifetime guarantee.

I, too, can not decide the choice. I've already seen many reviews. Now I stopped at this . It remains to make the right choice. What do you say, which is the best?
