Most chest-pack fishermen are used to making sacrifices to wade deep and keep things simple. They either have a cheap neck-strap that digs in and makes a long day miserable or a boxy pack that sticks out so far they can’t safely see their way down a steep bank. Umpqua eliminated both of these problems in the Overlook 500 ZS. Load-bearing shoulder straps attached to a full 4-point back-panel provide all-day support and comfort. A uniquely tapered main compartment allows for outstanding visibility for rock-hopping and unhindered casting while still holding four large fly boxes, and the front pocket has ample accessory storage. A snag-free shoulder sizing buckle, two Zero Sweep™ retractor stations, two Zero Sweep™ tool sheaths and Zero Sweep™ foam fly patch round out this righteous fishing pack. This pack integrates with the Surveyor 2000 ZS Backpack (sold seperately). This kit includes both the Overlook 500 ZS Back Panel and the Overlook 550 ZS Mesh Back Compartment. The Overlook 500 ZS Back Panel has a flat, nellowed back panel that holds a light rain jacket and a lunch. The Overlook 550 ZS Mesh Back Compartment is hydration compatable and adds 550 cubic inches (9 liters) of compartment space that holds 4 large fly boxes and then some.
  • Mesh back pocket with room for light rain jacket/lunch
  • 550 cubic inch compartment - 9 liters
  • Two external stretch-mesh tippet/accessory pockets
  • Hydration compatible
  • D-ring and web loops for net attachment
  • Internal key clip, closed-foot sliders, and YKK zippers

    Great pack!!

    Posted by Steve Treichler on Jul 22nd 2017

    I've been fly fishing for over 12 years, but just made the switch to a chest pack! After many years of using a heavy vest, I decided to lighten the load and go with a chest pack. I love this pack, and went ahead and bought the kit so it had extra backpack storage. Very well thought through and the backpack is a great addition to carry things that you would need for an all day hike deep into those harder to get to holes. Well worth the money and very well built. You need to watch the videos available to see the features! The only thing I would have liked is a few more pockets and zippers on the back pack portion, but it really is a great place for extra storage. Very satisfied customer!

    So flexible!

    Picked up this kit after Christmas and I've had it out a couple of times now, once with the small pack and once with just the back panel. In the chest pack, I was able to fit three Tacky boxes and an Umpqua streamer box along with the usual complement of streamside stuff - indicators, dry shake, flask, leaders, etc. Nipper and hemos go on the outside and sit very securely out of the way. Also a few well-placed attachment points for your tippet stack or whatever else. The back panel has enough room for a rain coat OR lunch, not both, and the pack has room for a coat, lunch, first aid kit, and maybe a little more. Great to have options! The hidden daisy chain on the pack also lets you attach a rod tube if you have aftermarket straps. Overall design is great and the four-point attachment makes it comfy for all day fishing - no pulling on the neck or one shoulder. I look forward to marrying this to the Surveyor pack if I need more room. Bottom line: I'm picky about packs and this one is a winner!

    I recently purchased an Umpqua Overlook 500 ZS Fly Fishing Chest Pack Kit for a fishing trip to the South Fork Kings River in the Western Sierras. The pack held all of my gear and was comfortable to wear all day long. Highly recommend it. Also highly recommend AvidMax for your next purchase. Great service!
