Every fisherman who uses a backpack to get your day fishing gear out to your favourite spot be it rock fishing or hiking a stream knows the convenience of leaving your pack on as you fish, working up and down a bank or stream – but when you go to change lure or re-rig its a bit of a pain to get the pack on and off regularly – well the crew at Paxis have come up with an innovative system to soothe your “1st world issues”. check it out
The Paxis whilst on the surface looks like your typical pack has an ingenious lower capsule they have called “the shuttle pod” that swings out and wrapping around your body to fit snuggly in front of you allowing free access to gear. The ARC arm is released from the front of the pack with a pull handle and once you have changed your lure or re-tied a rig it can be easily swung back behind you and your casting again.
