Gear bag to fish

The only thing that could be improved is the straps to secure the gear to the outside. Other wise this is outstanding

amazing river bag.

I have been using this on the raft and wade fishing. it is great for carrying fishing gear and stuffing in a bunch of layers. it has worked great for keeping everything bone dry. I really love this bag.

The best waterproof bag!

I've been wanting a bag like this for a while, and finally got the black version when it went on sale. I can see why they stopped making it in black, as it's nearly impossible to see inside without a flashlight :)

Roll-Top Pack 40 L

Quality materials, hoping it stands up to many seasons. Could be a bit bigger but does what it is needed for.

Great multi-use pack

A very well made and durable pack! Have been using for rock hunting and looking forward to using it on some float trips this Summer! I liked it so much that I bought a second one for additional storage and to have one for years to come!

Great bag!

This bag is super versatile and water resistant. Just used it on a climb day where it was pouring! Everything stayed nice and dry. The black is a really nice color

This bag is heavy duty, burly, dependable, and larger than it looks. Go anywhere bag. Sit out in the rain bag. Tough bag. It is quite stiff, but in a good way. You can count on this bag. No matter what.

Great Bag

I love this bag for my clients beverages, lunch and outerwear when the day starts to warm up. Keeps everything safe and dry. I get lots of positive feedback from my clients.

Quality product - basic design yet allows for customization

The Disperser Roll Top Pack (Disperser) is a superb product. I like the bag's quality and basic design while allowing the user to expand its utility by customizing it to the users specific needs; such as attaching vest pocket packs on the shoulder straps and the Patagonia Rod Roll to the two side straps to carry my fly rods. I was a strong Si...

Ancillary, your Customer Service Rep, Alex, is a customer's dream come true! Thank you Patagonia! Tom

Workhorse Pack

I bought this pack to replace an old worn out 32L Black Hole backpack that I used for 8 or 10 years hiking into out of the way surf spots. That pack worked ok putting my wet stuff in a water-proof bag to keep the dry stuff dry and not have dripping water leaking out of the bag. I decided to get the Dispenser Roll-Top because sometimes I had more ge... Read Morear than the BH could fit. Things I like about the new bag--very flexible in carrying different size loads, inner pocket is good, backpack straps are comfortable (I've still got a plate from a broken collarbone) and the pack sits well with the waist strap. I still use a separate dry bag for my wet stuff and there's plenty of room when I've got a 4/3 plus booties, gloves, hood vest, towel, plus the stuff that I leave in the bag (wax container, boardshorts, and extra wetsuit top) and sometimes fins for mat surfing. Things that are less than great--black color makes it more difficult to see stuff in the bottom of the bag, would like to be able have a second zippered pocket on the opposite side, no chest strap (I took the one on my old BH and put on the new one) and the most irritating are the rod holder straps, which are difficult to adjust (I use them to hold a rolled up surf mat). Overall it works better than the old BH, particularly with a full load, but it could be even better.

Lots of Space

I love this bag! my first one went all around the world with me. The thick shell kept all of my gear dry. It has tons of space to use as a suitcase but also comfortable enough to use as a day pack. The one tiny negative is where i live (Hawaii) I am told the bags seems delaminate if its not stored properly.

Beefy Backpack

I've had a chance to use my new Roll Top 40 a few times for work to haul field gear through wet Washington forests. The pack is spacious, comfortable, and (per usual) seems very well made. My stuff stays dry. Highly recommend.
