Read More Close
The simple, clean design and vertical-pocket configuration of our Convertible Vest make it an ideal minimalist fishing vest on its own. But for long days or more gear-intensive weather, it easily attaches to the front of our Stormfront® Roll Top Pack and Stormfront® Pack for higher hauling capacity. The lightweight polyester mesh body breathes easily and doesn’t hold excess moisture. Internal zippered pockets organize leader material, tippets and spools. External Hypalon® utility keeper and rod holder keep you fishing efficiently.
  • Vest can be worn alone or attached to pack fronts; vertical-pocket configuration for maximum convenience and organization; lightweight, breathable mesh body
  • Interior zippered pockets for tippets and spools; laser-cut Hypalon® utility keeper allows easy access to tools and nippers; rod holder
  • Vest detaches at shoulders and waist so vest front can be attached to Stormfront® Roll Top Pack or Stormfront® Pack (sold separately)

Convertible Vest is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost awesome. The vest was made with the usual Patagonia quality but has one design flaw. The pockets fill with water and do not drain. My gear was left sitting in water and when I bent over water poured from my pockets. All of my prior fishing vests had two small drain holes in each pocket. I returned mine in hopes that the new model will have drain holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Conversion Successful I converted the vest to attach to my older backpack. The old vest was pretty ratty. I had to cut the fasteners off the new vest and replace them with the clip fasteners from the old vest and everything is as it should be. Pass my thanks to Mark your product engineer. We talked at the Somerset NJ Fly Show and he thought it was doable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, but all you need For the last several years I tried a hip pack and a sling pack. Now I am back to the easily accessible vest. This vest is light with all the storage you will need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vest, just missing a rod holder loop I would call this a good purchase and I am not lookign to replace it which is high compliments but it falls short of great. It is comfortable, spacious, adjustable for different layers underneath, easy to use and good looking. I just wish it had a rod holding loop for the times you need a little help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bargain! A splendid little vest. I cast with my elbows close to my body. The lateral pockets on most vests interfere with my not-all-that-good casts. This vest works well. A bargain! One criticism: the velcro flaps on the main pockets are too close and are easily confused when in a hurry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vest and Pack Bought the vest without the pack to supplement an old (can't remember when I bought it) Patagonia mesh vest that while still serviceable is getting on. Took a BD daypack and sewed on d rings to fit the vest attachments (using gear I already had instead of buying everything new). The vest itself is a huge step up from the old Pata mesh vest, pocket design is much better, placement of pockets and attachment points is very well thought out. The mesh seems heavier weight also, which seems to give it better drape than the old one. To the point now, I am not sure if the old one will get used much at all. I rarely do this, but I would go 5 stars on this version of the vest. Fits all the needs I have for small dry flies to big, articulated streamers and all the gadgets we seem to carry nowdays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest vest in the west This vest is friggin sweet! Perfect for the hot days I had on the Owens River in Bishop. Lightweight, very breathable and looks so rad. If you're looking for all that, definitely get this vest. Oh and did I mention that it attracts fish?!?! You'll catch all the trout you can handle with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pleased with performance got the vest as recent Father's Day gift. I'm more of a bait fisher but trying out Tenkara made me decide to use this for both kinds of fishing. I love the foam pad on the left chest for quick storage of hooks and flies. Had some issues getting it tight enough for heavy scrambling in the granite canyon of the San Joaquin in CA, but I chalk it up to user error. Wonderful choices of storage in many pockets.
