ORVIS PRO FISHING VEST
The New Orvis Pro Fly Fishing Vest is designed to carry everything you need, but is very light and breathes well for comfort. It is built of light, abrasion-resistant nylon with a DWR coating. The fitted design is built to conform to the body. The shoulders have a lofted spacer mesh of nylon and spandex. There are 18 pockets—10 exterior, 6 interior, and 2 rear ergonomically designed with new materials to provide organization coupled with smooth workflow on the water. The two lower main pockets offer compression-molded construction that add rigidity. The upper pockets are medium size, both with Orvis custom hideaway tool port underneath two fly-drying patches. The rear pockets offer a large pass-through game-style pocket under a full-zip rear pocket with mesh panel divider. Other features include multiple daisy chain gear loops, elastic loops to attach tippet bars, an adjustable closure that slides vertically for a custom fit, padded collar for comfort, internal webbing hanging loop, and a tri-ring net holder centered on the rear yoke.

I thought that I’d bite the bullet and get a vest. I used to rely on the couple of tiny pockets in my waders or pants to go fishing.
However, this vest is amazing. There are tons of pockets for your leaders, flies, floatant, and places to easily store your nippers and pliers.
Not being the most fashionable guy it is a nice looking vest.
I originally ordered another Orvis vest but that was back ordered so I receive an email and a call from (I believe his name is Clay) about the back ordered vest. Clay (IIRC) offered to upgrade me to the Pro Vest if I’d be willing to split the difference in the cost. I was cool with that and appreciated the call.
Highly recommend this vest.

This vest has all the pockets and features I need. It's lightweight and durable. FlyRodReel had the best price -- hands down.

I reluctantly returned this vest but only because I really did not need it having just bought the Orvis Ultralight from ReelFlyRod. For my type of fishing the light, fewer picket Orvis was perfect for me. But this Pro vest is excellent and even better at this sale price. It has many easily accessible vertical pockets, two in front have a stiff support which makes it easy to open & close the zippers. There are lots of different size pockets to hold different size fly boxes plus all of the accoutrements we tend to carry. The back has a very generous double pouch and one zippered. If you need a full size but light weight vest built with high quality, and looks great, this is the one you want.
I highly recommend tge Orvis Pro Vest and at this price - it’s a steal.
