Great Vest

This is a great little vest, while I do say little because it does not have all the smaller upper pockets like other fishing vests it does hold quite a bit. Both of the larger pockets can hold a large fly container, such as a Flambeau Steamside which is 8.875'' x 4.75'' x 1.50", Or a couple of Flambeau 2003 boxes per pocket. The leader pockets are nice, and the "security" pocket is great as it offers a way to keep your ID, Fishing licenses, and credit cards secured on you without worrying about losing them in the river out of your pockets. Seeing as its a nice small single purpose pocket you wont be going into often, and its flap folds over to secure your cards and even some change. Its built much more tough then most of the vests I've used and/or seen so far. Heavy duty zippers and buttons, without no sewn on velcro that ends up slowly ripping off the material making it useless. And the material is plenty thick to survive not paper thin like many vests. I ended up starting to use it for all my fishing, due to the space and the quality, don't need to carry much more for a good days of fishing. I have the little Flambeau boxes set up for different types of fishing, and just need to grab what I need before heading out regardless of what kind of fishing I might be doing.

Great for Minimalists - Wading

Great, well-made and simple vest that is perfect for those of us who do not carry the "kitchen sink" for a day of fly or spin fishing. Typical Filson quality - should last a long, long time. I also like the olive/forest colors. This vest is perfect for wading/ fly fishing streams in the Western USA which is why I bought it...
