West Branch Fishing Vest

SOLD OUT

Product Details

A longtime customer favorite, we’ve improved this fisherman vest to deliver lighter weight, better water resistance and a variety of specially-designed pockets to keep your gear where you need it.

Fabric & Care

  • Lightweight, water-repellent ripstop nylon fabric.
  • Additional Features

  • Improved, redesigned version of our traditional fishing vest.
  • Lightweight, more waterproof and more functional than before.
  • Waterproof fabric repels water, rain and spills to keep gear dry.
  • Soft cotton collar is soft and absorbent for greater comfort.
  • Mesh liner improves air circulation to keep you cool and dry.
  • Foam fly patch can be attached to right or left side.
  • For easy access, all zippered pockets have easy-to-grip rubber pulls.
  • Twin interior mesh pockets keep contents visible.
  • Imported.
  • Why We Love It

    We’ve upgraded our always-popular fisherman vest to keep your gear dry, organized and easy to reach. This revised vest features twin bellows storage pockets with storm flaps, each backed by a zip pocket. A new eyewear pocket includes an attached microfiber cleaning cloth, and four tippet-management pockets each hold one tippet spool, each with dispenser ports that keep tippets snug to prevent free spooling. A back storage pocket is accessible from both sides.
