I have found this vest combo tonne extremely lightweight and durable with many pockets and tabs for my fly boxes and small lure boxes also. The tab on the top of the back pack I have attached my landing net with magnetic connector. I have installed a 1.5 lt bladder and the water still stays. Old even after I have worn it all day, it's great. The colour suit all the stream and river colour background helping blend in during a stalk so that I can get close enough for a best possible presentation. I always carry a seine, monocular, a T frame tippets and nipper and my Smith creek retractable rod holder zinger ( an absolutely fantastic invention. This vest back pack combo is great value and a great piece of kit. Well done Mike!
This is more than a vest--- the backpack that can be worn with the vest itself or each can be separated and worn independently. It is very comfortable to wear, incredibly light and highly functional with more pockets than I have gadgets for! One thing that I do love about this is that it is so highly adjustable--- I am 6'2" and relatively slim, which is fine in summer when its warm. But in winter, with jacket and neoprene waders etc... the straps extend out with ease to accommodate my large swings in seasonal size. ;) All in all, am very happy with the system, especially when hiking around mountain streams where the back pack holds extra lines/fly boxes/snacks/first aid gear etc... without being a full ruck sack weighing me down while fishing all day. Overall, my favourite vest so far- and far more so than traditional fly vests for the reasons mentioned above.
I have used this vest day after day for weeks, fishing little streams, rivers and lakes.Great vest for the price, quality is far superior than I was expecting for the price. It's also very handy that you can detach the back pack if you want and just use front vest, which I have when flyfishing from my kayak with a pfd on. .Endless amount of pockets that are easy to access, very breathable too.Great value!
