    Just received my magnetic net holder. I was questioning the price compared to others I looked at. Once I set it up on my vest I am stoked! Great magnetic strength and ease of use. Orvis you rock!

    I don't know how I survived on the river without this net holder. It has made managing my net on the river so much easier and has even kept me from losing my net a couple of times. I highly recommend this over other similar products

    This is a great product. The magnet is very strong and the retractable cable is heavy duty.

    A tried and true ORVIS classic - 6/14/2014

    I use this product since 20 years. It is best working when you can see the holder when attaching to the net. e.g. somewhere near the hip. The make of them is outstanding and they last long. The magnets are of exactly the needed force not too weak nor too strong. I prefer this over my ORVIS gear keeper net retractor when I want to save weight. The best magnetic net holder and also the original.

    Works awesome - 5/16/2014

    Magnet works great not to strong or to weak. Makes storing your net quick and easy and it's always within reach.

    Another perfect present for my awesome husband. - 5/6/2014
    By: from Glfd., Ct.

    When my husband opened this his eyes were dancing. I had also given him the net. After he used it, he said he did not even feel it hanging off his vest and when he needed it, it was so easy to get. And, when he dropped one of the flies he had tied, he used the magnet to locate it. I love buying him presents from Orvis.

    Pricey but solid - 3/26/2014

    Well made and works well. The magnets hold solidly and the no-rust brass split rings are non-magnetic and don't interfere with the magnet function like steel would. I rigged mine with zip ties holding one magnet to net hoop (opposite handle end) and the other magnet at D-ring at neck of my vest. The way the net hangs handle-down along my back- out of the way and easy to grab. The plastic coil is fixed to handle of net and the other end to a d-ring at side of vest- allowing plenty of reach to the fish. Works great.
