Versatile and lightweight.

When your fishing forays vary from a few hours to a few days, you need a vest that adapts to meet your needs. Made from lightweight and breathable mesh, the Patagonia Convertible Fly Fishing Vest is designed to meet your ever-changing angling attitude. The mesh vest body minimizes the likelihood the fish will smell you coming. Multiple pockets crafted from 420D ballistic nylon won't withstand bullets or pescatarian bears, but should endure just about everything else. Internal zippered pockets offer leader line and tippets safe haven from snarls and other knotty issues. Rugged hypalon utility keepers and rod holders free your hands for the more important things, like attaching a new fly or opening a refreshing beverage.
Mesh is magnificent and indestructible pockets are awesome. But the truly exciting aspect of this angling vest is its flexibility. You can take off the back of the vest, attach the front to any number of Patagonia fishing packs, and turn that pack into a vest of sorts.

Convertible Vest video review

Corey from Patagonia talks through the brand new Convertible Fly Fishing Vest

I see the velcro strap up top for holding the rod, but I haven't seen any pictures with the rod butt loop anywhere. Is this feature the same as the Mesh Master and Minimalist vests? What I mean is, does it have the same rod butt loop or is there something new? That was one of my favorite features of the Mesh Master vest. Both hands were free, for balance, while moving across the river.

tstockt - No there is no loop for the the reel end of the rod... I called Patagonia... they left it off... for no reason...I would just add one... easy to do... Sad they did not... unlike them to goof like this


What packs is this vest compatible with?

Pat, It's compatible with the two Stormfront packs Patagonia offers, as well as the Sweet Pack (which already comes with the vest)


According to the patagonia site, this vest front comes attached to a vest back (not the sweet fly fishing pack you have pictured). Will I get the vest back with this purchase?

Good catch. This image in incorrect and the product you'll get will be exactly what Patagonia has pictured.
