I love it. I can carry a decent lunch, a couple cans of PBR, a water bottle, and all the gear I can possibly need.
I recommend moving to gear that gives you pleasure to use. This side bag does it for me.
Now that the warmth of summer is creeping up in the afternoon, a bag that stays off our backs is a great joy.
Evenings are the best. Get out there and meet some trout.
