The Filson Men's Mesh Fly Fishing Strap Vest is a fishing vest that is high on adjustment and comfort. With the use of straps, you're able to adjust the size to your preference and there will be less fabric at the front to heat you up. The back is constructed of mesh for additional cooling. The two large zipper pockets at the front can carry fly boxes while the rear pouch is expandable for various items. The four bellows pockets expand when in use, folding flat when empty. Attach flies to the stylish and soft sheepskin shearling pad, or remove it if you're just not in the mood. Don't forget your fishing license.

Rated 4 out of
Lots to like/loveIm 5'6" many vests, tried lanyards, front packs, slings, and now the Mesh Vest. I wade almost all the time and front packs block my view of my feet, thats dangerous. my vests were nice and you know the names but one deeper step and they were wet. Lanyard never got wet but i was limited to a few small boxes that fit in my shirt. You all know the story. this vest hikes up real high and after fishing the white river for 3 days it only barley dipped in the stream once and the fabric acted almost water proof. Water went in the drain holes and back out. In short order it was dry again. Plenty of pockets inside and out to organize my stuff. comfortable to wear and looks absolutely great! It will last a long long time, really well made from great material. It is a simple easy to use intuitive system and i love it. on the down side, it is heavy all on its own. put it on empty and you can notice the weight of the straps on your shoulders due to the heavier old school materials used. Lots of vests today are made from high-tech materials that are so light you can't help but feel the difference when you put this on. The price, well, I am old enough to remember the army surplus store up on Merrick road that sold a very similar vest that was used in WWII to carry ammo. cardboard box full of them for sale in various states of condition for like $5. kind of wish i bought all of them. The cost of $185 is steep but after much deliberation i paid because it is the kind of quality that i really appreciate and is hard to find today so considering how long it will last i decided it was a good value and i am sure if anything goes wrong with it, Filson will help me out. I love it and i look forward to using it again, and Moose Jaw is wonderful easy to work with too.
