Rated 5 out of 5 by K9trainer Dog agility training vest
I don't fish--this vest is the perfect accessory for dog agility--pockets galore, inside and out, and a pouch in back that is easily accessible from either side for larger tug toys. The shorter length of this vest allows for movement, and the front pockets are large enough to accommodate numerous dog treats. Washable, comfortable, neutral easy color. Thank you LL Bean.

It is wonderful no just for camping, fishing or other sports, but to do every day errands. It have pockets for your wallet, your cell, any health product you have to take or use while shopping and even maps, note pads and pens. It?s a really a convenient product which handles all your needs while you are out.
I just wish it is also available in black or army green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frenchy What happened to the blue one?
I ordered this in a very pretty light blue. Unfortunately, I ordered a large and it was way too big. When I called to order a smaller size in blue, they didn't have any more.
I don't fish but I do travel a lot. I have an LL Bean pink vest that I bought this winter. The material is different, but it has the same great features as this vest. I now use my pink vest constantly when I travel. There are so many pockets that I no longer need to carry a purse or have a purse around my neck. We are on vacation now. Today I started out wearing a mock turtle neck under my polo. By noon time it had warmed up about 15 degrees. I took off the mock turtle neck and put it in the large zipper pocket across the whole back of the vest--no need to carry anything.
The ash bark just is not my color. For my coloring, the light blue would be a great neutral color. The pink one I have is not a neutral color. It clashes with a lot of my Bean polos.

Purchased for my girlfriend. Good quality, construction, color, material and features. Overall, very satisfied. Only downside is the small chest pockets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by damselfly13 Bad color
I agree with the other reviewer. I previously had an LL Bean fishing vest which I really liked and when it wore out I planned to order a new one I was extremely disappointed that the only color is so bad for serious anglers. If I were to spend this much money, I would expect it to come in colors that won't scare fish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Leo3990 fish can see color
this is a nice vest. It is superior in quality and features to the Emerger, however I bought the Emerger because of the colors available. I am surprised that a company such as LL Bean does not offer a women's vest in the colors best suited to serious fly fishing. According to fishing literature, (including what is published by Bean) fish see color, so you want to blend in with the surroundings. In the east those colors are muted greens, in the west, browns. Poor choice if you want to fish.
