    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 Velcro® 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 Velcro 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: 100% woven nylon w/ DWR finish. Collar: 92% polyester 8% 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).

    Orvis Ultralight Vest
    Charles Roberts (Houston,Texas) | April 11th, 2021
    This vest is much lighter than my old vest, not nearly as bulky but plenty of pockets for storage and is very comfortable to wear. I am very happy with the quality of the vest but on my wish list would be a loop for attaching gear coming out of the bottom of each top pocket. All and all you can’t go wrong by spending you money on this vest!

    Great, lightweight vest
    GARTH WARNER (South Carolina) | November 8th, 2020
    Purchased for my son and we are both learning to fly fish and figure out what "system" (vests vs. hip packs vs. sling packs) we prefer to use. He wanted a light weigh vest with a ton of pockets and a place for his net. This Orvis vest is well made, very functional and he loves I couldn't beat the sale price on ReelFlyRod!

    Excellent light weight vest
    Kevin Costello (MD) | October 28th, 2019
    I do a fair amount of cold water and warm water fly fishing, and after a couple of trips where I forget to add/remove the applicable gear I decided it was time to have a dedicated cold water pack/vest. I have a sling pack that is now dedicated to warm water fishing that I really love but since I take a net with me for cold water, I wanted a setup that would be able to attach to a net zinger/retrieval device. I looked at chest packs and multiple vests and by far the most comfortable, while being practical, was the Orvis Ultralight.

    Perfect Light-weight Vest
    Doug (CO) | September 25th, 2019
    As I look a various vests, I wanted to find something that was light-weight yet had the versatility to carry what I needed. I used the Orvis Ultralight yesterday for the first time and it met all of my needs. While it was a sunny, hot day, the vest was light enough to be comfortable. I was able to carry all I wanted, even a water bottle in one of the front pockets. I didn't think about the vest all day on the water which is the best of signs. A great buy.

    My sling/hippack/vest search has finally ended. Over the last few years I have tried sling packs from Orvis and Simms, A vest and backpack from Simms, a vest/pack from Umpqua, and a hip pack from Patagonia. They all fell short or had one or more major things that irritated me on the water and made fishing difficult. Whether is was too much clutter, not enough storage space, nowhere to hold my net or full submersion of the hip pack with my short legs and deep wadding, they always fell short. This vest is the best piece of equipment I own and I would not change a thing. The vest is super light like the name suggests and fits a ton of gear. I hold 4 large tacky boxes plus one small tacky midge box, a streamer box and all the other essentials, leaders, tippet, indicators, nippers, hemos, net, lunch, ect. and the weight is distributed evenly with no aches or pains. It really takes your mind away from what you're carrying and lets you focus on the fishing.
