EFTTEX Awards 2017

The EFTTEX Best New Product Awards 2017

Introduced at EFTTEX by German distributor Rudi Heger, this new fishing pack is the latest accessory innovation from Patagonia. It combines the features of a traditional hip-pack with a backpack or sling-back. Says Heger: “The Stealth Atom Pack 2012 is a highly versatile hip-pack that provides function and performance for the minimalist angler. Whether you use it at your local stream or at a great saltwater destination, it will be your best buddy at the water’s edge. It can be used in so many ways you will be amazed by its design.”

The pack’s 840 denier, water-resistant coated ballistics nylon outer is highly water repellent and durable for full protection of its contents, says Heger. It has a molded drop-down front panel with interior fly keeper; a main zip pocket that holds two large fly boxes; a mesh-lined security pocket; and several interior Velcro-closed storage pockets for tippet spools, tapered leaders, floatants and soft lead. The YKK zippers on the exterior are highly water repellent. There is also a nylon/spandex expandable water bottle pocket with security keeper and a Hypalon gear keeper.

“This pack is a completely new design and is absolutely unique with so many ways to use it!” adds Heger.
