The Story

The Ultralight Fishing Vest offers a new modern, sleek, and functional design that integrates perfectly with the concept of the Ultralight Wading System. The low-profile design keeps load closer to the body and the slimmer design reduces the "layered bulk" of conventional vests. Lightweight material, treated with DWR, dries faster and breathes better. Strategically integrated mesh offers ventilation and form-fitting comfort. Eleven pockets, 6 exterior, 4 interior, and 1 rear. Four large vertical chest pockets for fly boxes, two of which have internal stretch mesh organization pockets. Two exterior vertical chest pockets higher on the shoulder hold leaders, tippet and other accessories. Two interior vertical chest pockets hold valuables and the right pocket has a key clip. Lower interior stretch mesh pockets form to load for maximum comfort. Highly adjustable sliding clip closure allows you to adjust vertically to the most comfortable position. Two multi-function hook-and-loop fly patches hide a port for zinger. Construction design allows nippers to nest under patch for quick but out of the way access. Forceps can be slid up from the outside underneath patch for easy access. Two elastic cords on exterior of chest pockets for adding accessories and tippet bar. Soft poly/spandex blend lined foam collar for maximum comfort around the neck. Internal webbing loop for hanging the vest. Large rear zipper pocket securely holds extra gear. Tri-ring net holder on the upper back. In storm gray.

Shell: woven nylon w/ DWR finish. Collar: polyester/spandex. Fabric Mesh: poly/spandex stretch mesh. Washable. Imported.

Sizes S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, light, light There is enough capacity for expected season, location and destination of FLY Fish. I would like to use fishing VEST still although many people wants to have sling bags. This is very light and best choice. Just one request is more shorter is better for deep wading when across the river.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultralight fishing vest I use the ultralight vest every time I go fishing here in Colorado. Prior to purchasing it this month, I had used the Orvis Pro vest for the past 20+ years. It is still in excellent shape even with the beating it takes when I hike into more remote locations that are thigk with willows to get away from other anglers. This new vest will do a great job in replacing my older vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest The fit and ergonomics are second to none. Pockets and loops are in the perfect place. I can't wait for the temps to warm up a bit to try this out in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Freedom to move and easy access to supplies and equipment. I don't think I will use my swing pack anymore. The pockets are large and ample to hold fly boxes, leaders, indicators and lots more. I think the Ultralight Vest will be perfect for the warmer AZ weather.
