Rated 4 out of 5 by AlecA Good, but could be better
I'm fairly new to fly fishing, so when I bought this vest, I didn't know about rod holders and vests. Unfortunately, this vest doesn't have the rod holder feature, which is a detriment. I can't imagine that adding a loop and a velcro holder would have added much in cost. I'll have to make due now, but I wish I had known.

This is a nice vest,really like the pockets and the big zippered back pocket allows one to put a light rain jacket,essentials,etc
*The color is much different in appearance then the website,it is NOT "Cement" or grayish,,it is more like a light Kaki
going have to dye it more of a stone aka cement color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Royalcoachman A top-notch fishing vest!
I've been fly fishing for 40 years and this is exactly the vest that I want and need at this stage of my fishing "career". well made, good fit (I wear a medium shirt and took a large vest to wear over sweaters in cooler weather), more than enough pockets for all a serious angler really needs. An absolutely terrific product - LL Bean does it again!

I finally had to replace a LL Bean vest that I inherited from my dad about 30 yrs. ago , that HE used for 20yrs ! So with that kind of usage , and hard usage at that , where else would I look ! This vest has everything you need for hitting the rivers and streams . Just the right amount of pockets , medium weight fabric that looks great , perfect length (falls right at beltline for me,XL). I bought one size up for my early spring ,late fall and winter Bull Run river walks. Can wear two base layers and my Bean fleeces under without feeling constricted while bending , casting and climbing around. I look forward to 50 more years of using this one !!

Well-thought-out & well-executed. Good vest for the fly fisherman or spin fisherman. Regret they no longer offer it in the khaki color. This is the 3d Emerger Vest I have bought from L.L. Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by danieltv Very nice, but....
I am really happy with the quality & design of this vest. 100% cotton & 'not' made in China. My only complaint is the velcro for the pockets! If these had metal snaps or even buttons, I'd give this five stars. Velcro just doesn't last... I use the vest for travel & photography. Great for small lens, film, batteries etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Photolor Lots of pockets
I purchased this vest to use for another hobby, though I do fish. I use this for photo gear when I hike. I can pack an extra lens, filters, extra batteries, cleaning cloth, a bottle of water and numerous other items. It comes in very handy, and for anyone that hikes and likes to take photos, it is a very useful article to have.
