Fishing pack is designed for long treks to alpine lakes

February 28, 2008 

Here's a pack that fits the bill for high-lakes anglers.

When you have to hike 2 or 3 miles to an alpine lake, you want to combine a large volume backpack with a rugged chestpack.

The fishpond Shooting Star chest and backpack combines the features. Each pack can be used separately or together.

The combo pack is designed for steep and long treks into remote terrain.

You can add a 100-ounce fishpond Waterlog Hydrations Reservoir, which is sold separately.

Cost: $179; www.fishpondusa.com.
