Filson Guide Vest

Great Filson quality which one has come to expect over the years. One thing needs to be fixed, however, and that is the tendency of late for Filson not to trim off excess threadwork properly - took me all of half an hour to trim and clean up with a gas lighter and scissors. Now it looks as it should have done in the first place - terrific!

Filson Guide Vest

There is nothing I need add to what everyone knows about Filson- it is the best! Very versatile, lots of pockets and of course- heavy duty. The fit is correct for me and even though it is made of heavy material it is surprisingly cool to wear. If you are like me and like to keep your stuff for a long time, Filson is the brand for you

Decent Fishing Vest

Overall I would say the fishing vest is quite good. There are a couple of things I would rather see such as a zipper instead of snaps, and the wool pad for the flies is coming off too easily. However it is quite comfortable, more pockets and spots than you could ever use. The sunglasses pocket is a very nice touch.

Disappointing purchase

The Filson vest looks great online! But when it arrived, it was a disappointment. It has strong, metal zippers, which is good, but the snaps on the pockets were not nearly as well made -- one snap broke the first time I used it. It takes quite an effort from thumb and forefinger to open and close. You can purchase less expensive vests from other companies that are better put together for the 21st century fisherman -- they offer zingers, velcro, etc. None of these things is used in the Filson vest, which is, admittedly, a throwback piece of gear. This wouldn't matter so much if the old-fashioned clips worked better (but they don't). The vest is made in USA, which is something I generally approve of, but if the US product is more expensive and can't outperform the Chinese, Mexican, or Taiwanese product, then there's really no advantage to buying it, is there?
