When your fishing forays vary from a few hours to a few days, you need a vest that adapts to meet your needs. Made from lightweight and breathable mesh, the Patagonia Convertible Fly Fishing Vest is designed to meet your ever changing angling attitude. The mesh vest body minimizes the likelihood the fish will smell you coming. Multiple pockets crafted from 420D ballistic nylon won't withstand bullets or pescatarian bears, but should endure just about everything else. Internal zippered pockets offer leader line and tippets safe haven from snarls and other knotty issues. Rugged hypalon utility keepers and rod holders free your hands for the more important things, like attaching a new fly or opening a refreshing beverage. Mesh is magnificent and indestructible pockets are awesome. But the truly exciting aspect of this angling vest is its flexibility. You can take off the back of the vest, attach the front to any number of Patagonia fishing packs, and turn that pack into a vest of sorts.
