Rated 5 out of 5 by LHShrike Perfect for walking and hiking with my dogs
I wanted a lightweight vest with lots of convenient pockets to carry all the paraphernalia I need for walking and hiking with my two dogs. This is perfect! It also looks cool - NOT like I'm hunting or carrying a concealed weapon. I also like the cropped length.

I bought this vest for traveling, not fishing. I normally wear a large, but since this is made large for movability when fishing, I had to return it for a medium. I am a short person and this vest will work well for me is it does not come down over the hips. It hits just below my waist or high hip. I have not used it yet, but feel it will work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mississippifly Perfectly cut for women
This vest carries everything I need for stream or pond. I've been wearing a men's vest until I discovered this vest. Perfect fit for this full figured southerner. Not too long, pockets well placed, well made. Should last a long time.

I love this! I bought it, not for fly-fishing, but to tote bug boxes, magnifying glasses, etc., when I lead school groups at our local Nature Center. It works for that like a charm! Very well made! The medium is a bit large through the armholes, but since it's really for fly-fishing, I can see why it would need to be -- and it doesn't present a problem for me.

I purchased this vest, not for fishing, but for wearing during horseback trail rides. It works very well for that, since I can put my essentials in the many pockets on my person in case I get separated from my horse. My phone, GPS, lip balm, sun screen, pocket knife, map, tissues, first aid kit, etc fit very nicely in the pockets very well with lots of room to spare. You don't want to load too much in the front pockets, or the vest becomes "front heavy". The large pocket in back is handy for a light jacket. I got the XL so I could have plenty of room for layers if needed, and it fits well for that. It suits my needs very well. For the women, it should be offered in colors, not just the cement, so it would be more feminine looking, hence the 4 star rating rather than the 5. I have not laundered it yet, but it appears to be well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MilitaryMa Perfect fishing vest for a princess
My daughter is a lovely mix of princess and pioneer. She loves to dress up and be pretty but she is equally comfortable hunting or fishing. This pink fishing vest lets her have the best of both worlds. She looks pretty in pink and has plenty of pockets for all her gear when she is out on the river. Definitely a great buy. Product is rugged and appears to be wearing well.

I was unable to purchase the size I needed. The item was reduced in price when I discovered it, and although I visited our local store, they did not carry it.

I do not fish, but needed a vest and found this an intriguing piece - most convenient with all the pockets. It is just fabulous! Classical Bean superb quality, and delightfully quirky. I will be wearing this forever.

When this came on a deep sale I looked first to buy one for a granddaughter who has visitation with her Daddy, who is an avid fisherman. She loves to fish with Daddy so the vest was special for her. While I was at it I decided to buy one for another granddaughter who is a Brownie and camps with her Troop. Well, okay, Mommy camps with the Troop, so get another so they match. Finally, another daughter loves pink, hikes and camps, so get her one too. Four (Yikes!) vests later, all the young females are outfitted and only one fishes. But the price was good and they love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MacInCT Great vest!
I am a new fly fishing enthusiast and wanted a light weight vest to carry all of the odds and ends associated with the sport. For this, this vest is perfect.
I am also an aspiring water colorist and wanted a vest with lots of pockets for my camera, sketchbook, etc. Again, this vest is perfect.
I also have to travel on business and I can see that this vest could replace my usual carry-on for iPhone, meds, snacks, and all the other bits and pieces that make air travel less onerous.
The color, "cement", is a useful neutral.
