Gear Review: AFTCO Angler Urban Backpack

WHAT IS IT?

AFTCO Urban Angler Backpack

WHAT SETS IT APART?

AFTCO designed a downsized angling backpack that has just enough storage for a day trip, with less bulk to prevent fatigue. The inside holds a 3600-size utility box and the outer pocket holds up to a 3640-size box. Inside are five plastic pages for soft plastics. A 1.5-liter hydration pack includes a magnetic tube holder to keep it in place. There’s a handy pocket for small items like fishing licenses, phones, wallets or keys. Lumbar support and an elevated back rest keeps the pack comfortable enough to wear all day, and a spare rod holder keeps rigs secure and ready for action. 

HOW DO I USE IT?

Just take what you need on a given day trip. You’ll lighten the load and can wear this pack all day without adding bulk with gear you don’t need.

ANGLER’S INSIGHT:

Don’t let the small size of this pack fool you. It’s designed for one purpose. That is for holding only what you need for a day of fishing on small waters. You won’t leave anything behind as the pack is designed with integrated storage options that can be customized for a given trip.
