VEEDAVOO’s TL Beast Sling Pack is the cat’s meow. The shape of the sling drives the weight down – past the center of gravity – so unlike other “circular” and “purse” slings, this one will stay put. Pulled to the front, the pack lies flat across your chest – giving you quick access to your tools and tippet. A built in tippet holder on the front of the pouch holds a stack of spools securely, and six tool anchors keep your core gear handy and organized. Two additional tab loops take zingers, or provide a spot for you to pinch on your hemostats (after sliding them through one of the tool anchor loops for secure keeping). If you don’t like your hemo’s there – three small loops of 550 Paracord give you other options for securing the tool above the pouch opening. The pouch is designed around the Cliff Beast Jr. Flybox (10″ X 6.5″ X 2.75″) – which fits inside like a glove. But because of the size of this flap-closure pouch, you have plenty of room to carry a dozen good boxes (and a lunch) with ease.
An insulated bottle sleeve holds your water below the pouch (when it’s on your back) – anchoring the load to your back and helping to prevent slip. A slight pull to the front presents the bottle for quick drinks – and when the pack is pulled forward, the bottle sits beside the pouch for easy access. A secondary zipper pocket lets you tuck in gink, indicators, weight, etc. – but keeps them out of your way until needed. It has a raingear pocket designed the pack that lets you tuck in your jacket behind the pouch / water bottle sleeve – making it quickly accessible but keeping it out of your way until you need it. Because of the positioning of this pocket, your raingear provides a bit of padding on your back when it’s stuffed in – keeping weight down and ensuring comfort on long days. Every pack is hand-built to order in our workshop using 1000D American woven Cordura fabrics and American made hardware, straps, and closures.
