newest vest purchase from orvis -
By: flytyer1 from toronto
I have been looking around for a new vest. I am one of those guys who carries a vest with 2 extra reels, umpteen fly boxes (you can never have enough and there will be that one day every 5 years you need that special fly in that box :) you know what I mean). I went to the orvis store and picked up this. It is your usual good orvis quality for the most part but I am a little disappointed with a few things. plastic net ring on the back -I will change this out very quickly for a metal key ring. there doesn't seem to be any extra support across the shoulders to distribute the weight. me 2nd last vest had a stretch of sheepskin across the top to spread the weight. Sometimes the new technology can't beat the old. All in all I am happy with it but wish Orvis would bring back some of the tried and true aspects in vest design.
Great buy -
By: katrina10 from Rhode Island
I bought the vest for my husband who fishes with friends in local lakes and ponds during the summer. I wanted the vest light enough that he didn't sweat while wearing it and generously sized for his size 44+ frame. The vest in size XL satisfied both requirements and looks great on him. I was especially pleased the 2-day shipping delivered on time, and that your customer service people could track it, even to the exact location where it was left at our house.
Nylon Ugh! -
By: AlistairG from UK
I had high hopes of this jacket to replace an ageing and much loved Orvis vest, but when I went to try it on I couldn't believe it. Nylon. Simply horrible feel to it. Why can't we have some natural fibres? Old orvis vest will have to do another season!
Great Features, Tight Fit -
By: SMSC from Virginia
Lots and lots of pockets of various sizes, both zipper and velcro closures. The D-ring to hang your net on the back is plastic. I think that was designed to reduce weight, but unknown how sturdy it is or how long the D-ring will last. I ordered online versus from a retail store. I have to return as I need a size larger than I normally wear because it won't fit over normal layering for colder weather.
Light Weight Super Tac-L-Pak -
By: Fish4meNJ from New Jersey
I have had my original vest for the past 4 years and decided to purchase the newer version for my son. It has a tremendous amount of pocket space for every season. It is very lightweight when fully loaded. It is a classic design that has all of the features you would want in a fishing vest. I feel it well worth the cost-solid zipper as well and very waterproof. Worth the extra dollars as compared to other brands that I have had over the years. The seams have held up well for me, and I carry a lot of gear that weighs down the pockets. I don't wade deep and this is just fine but if you do wade deep you may consider the shorter wading vest because your fly boxes and other gear will get wet with this vest. I carry water proof boxes, so this is not a concern for me. I prefer this vest over those, and other top brand vests, because of the equally sound construction, and bigger pockets that will hold most large items. Another solid product by Orvis!
The best vest you could buy ! -
By: Theo from Asperen, The Netherlands
This is the best vest you can buy on the market since as long as I am wearing these vests. I need about two a year but then I wear them all and every day of the year ! lost of pockets and very sturdy, especially the new (lichtweight) one !
I received what I asked for. -
By: Bushwalker from Canberra, Australia
I spent considerable of time researching available vests. I use the vest for bushwalking (trekking). The vest is a little shorter than I expected (my previous vests came down to my butt). The pockets are well placed and of a good size. The pockets enable me to access regularly used gear (eg GPS, gloves, hat, etc.) in readily accessible places while still walking. The pockets are not blocked by my backpack. The vest is very well made and I would buy this brand again if a similar article is required.

I bought this vest about 6 years ago. I have considered buying a new vest but every one I look at just doesn't have the features. I have tried to go 'lean' with a chest pack only to return to this vest. I wash it once a year and it still looks great. It fits well and when loaded, it is comfortable around the neck. If you are looking to buy a vest, seriously consider this one!
Big Guy -
I am a big guy and I bought this in a 4xl. It fits great and looks good as well. Sometimes items for buy guys can be of lesser quality, but this vat proved to be of the same high quality that all Orvis products are know for. Thanks for not forgetting about your Big customers
