    Lots of pockets! - 6/25/2015

    Got this vest b/c it has more pockets than most fishing vests. I especially like the two fly reel pockets on the back. It is easy to over-stuff, though, so that it weighs more than a tackle box.

    I went to the store at Park Meadows and they did not have the vest in stock. The clerk easily help me order it online in the store and received free shipping. I am totally satisfied with the vest.

    Another quality product from ORVIS. Lots of pockets,quality zippers, and the comfort off the vest is what you would expect from ORVIS . You can carry all your fishing gear with room to spare and yet the vest fits snug.I believe this vest will last for years .

    Super Tac-L-Pack Vest - 2/9/2013
    By: from Bailey, CO

    I purchsed my origionl Tac-L-Pack vest 25 years ago. Finally the velcro started wearing out but the vest is holding on strong. It just got smaller or I got bigger! I looked at many vests before coming back to Orvis. The Tack-L-Pack in my opinion is superior to vests that have twice the price. This new vest has more pockets than my origional Tac-L-Pack. It still has the dual zippered pockets on the front bottom which is a must for all of my large fly boxes. The quality is still outsdanding, and I would reccomend this vest to anyone over all the vests I have seen. If this one lasts as long as my first one it will be around to hand down to my Grandson. :-) Outstanding product.

    The Best Vest - 1/18/2013

    A quick drying, comfortable vest. I already own one and had it for a few years so I thought I'd pick up another whle they were on sale. The 27 pockets make it ideal for whatever you need to carry on with you while on the creek. This really is a great vest and deservesa "five stars."

    Disappointed in Orvis - 1/13/2013
    By: from Blackhills, SD

    I have been an Orvis customer now for 20+ years and buy everything from clothes to gear from them. The Super Tac-L-Pak Vest I recently purchased is not up to the normal Orvis standard. The material and workmanship are not what I remember or what exists in my older Orvis vest. To top things off, it arrived with the monogramming uneven with the first letter lower than the next two. Also the thread on the monogram was coming out. Needless to say, it went back, I'll see what Orvis does to remedy the situation.

    Best vest - 12/15/2012

    Have tried three other vests over the years but the Tac-L-PaK is the best. You can carry all the flies, tippet and leaders, floatant etc, and have room for your raingear, water and lunch. I can't wait to get my new vest ready for the spring fishing!

    The perfect vest. - 11/26/2012

    After looking at several vests, your vest had all the features I need. The price point and quality were strong selling points.

    Was great for a while, but... - 11/16/2012

    Bought one of these years ago. Used it for a few years and had to pack it away when I moved. After I moved back into flyfishing country from the midwest, I discovered like another user had, that the "sewn on" pockets were coming off. I loved this vest, but the thread used to construct it is not in for the long haul.
