Man Makes Fire publishes outdoor gear reviews of high-quality outdoor gear from brands we trust.
For our waterproof fishing backpack reviews, we focus on backpacks that deliver excellent price-to-value ratios. We use, test, and review waterproof backpacks from reputable fishing gear manufacturers and retailers, including Orvis, Simms, Patagonia, Fishpond and YETI. Our focus is to help you learn about which waterproof backpacks and styles will be the best for your fly fishing needs. For instance, do you need a large backpack with lots of room or will a smaller pack be better? Would you rather use a roll-top closure or a rugged waterproof zipper design? Will you pack heavy loads and need a waist belt for additional support? Each year, we update our popular guide to the best fishing backpackswith new waterproof picks and options help you choose the best new waterproof backpack for you.
