The serious fly fisherman needs some serious equipment. Thankfully, Patagonia has cleverly designed a modern, performance-driven hybrid pack vest designed for fishing fresh and salt water.
Australia offers some of the best fly fishing the world has to offer. The Patagonia Hybrid Pack Vest comfortably hauls everything you need to deal with rapidly changing weather and fishing conditions. And we all know how unpredictable the weather can be.
The Hybrid Vest evolved from the now-classic Vertical Pocket Vest. The design team took the already popular classic vest and carefully updated the fabric and added an integrated pack. the benefits of this- improved comfort and performance. The vest is now made from lighter, more water repellant material, a combination of 5.5-oz CORDURA 86% nylon/14% polyester ripstop with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
A vertical pocket configuration provides easy storage and access and multiple internal zippered pockets, Hypalon utility keepers and D rings put everything in its place. Patagonia has thought of everything right down to where to keep your vegemite sandwich. Large rear storage pockets hold your lunch, jacket and anything else you might want to carry around. The pack also has a sleeve for a hydration bladder and with front and side adjustments, it's easy to maintain fit as your insulation changes along with the temperature.
