Man Makes Fire publishes outdoor gear reviews. We focus only on high-quality outdoor gear from brands we trust.
For our fishing backpack reviews, we focus on fishing backpacks that deliver excellent price-to-value ratios. We use, test, and review backpacks from reputable fishing gear manufacturers and retailers, including Orvis, Simms, Patagonia, YETI, Fishpond, Spiderwire, and Bass Pro Shops. Our focus is to help you learn about which backpacks will be the best for your fishing style and needs. For instance, do you need a backpack with lots of organizational pockets? Do you need accessory attachment points? Or should you choose a waterproof fishing backpack? Each year, we update our guide to the best fishing backpacks with new picks and options to help you choose the best backpack for your fishing needs.
