Swing an October caddis on the Deschutes and you never know what’s coming up—redside or steelhead. You also don’t know if you’re going to be in shirtsleeves or full puff-and-shell gear from one hour to the next. Our Hybrid Pack Vest comfortably hauls everything you need to deal with schizophrenic weather and keeps you organized through it all. We started with our now-classic Vertical Pocket Vest and modernized it with the latest high-performance materials and an integrated pack. The vest body is made from 100% nylon double ripstop backed with durable, 3-D spacer mesh that breathes easily in the heat and won’t absorb water in a downpour. A vertical pocket configuration provides easy storage and access, while Hypalon® utility keepers, D-rings and multiple internal zippered pockets put everything in its place. Large rear storage pocket holds lunch, jacket and anything else you want to pack around. The pack also has a sleeve for a hydration bladder. Front and side adjustments make it easy to maintain fit as your insulation changes according to weather.
  • Polyester mesh ventilates in hot weather and won’t absorb water in wet, cold conditions; 100% nylon pockets with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • Vertical front zippered pocket provides low-bulk storage and easy access
  • Multiple interior zippered pockets carry tippet spools, car keys; hidden rod holder; large exterior storage pocket for jacket, lunch
  • Nylon accessory holder; sunglasses loop; front D-rings allow for quick organizing
  • Adjustable front and side closure allows for light or midlayers
  • Body: 6.25-oz 100% nylon double ripstop with DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Mesh: 100% polyester 3-D spacer mesh
  • 388 g (13.7 oz)
  • Made in Vietnam.

Water Resistant

 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product. Shoddy construction Love the idea of the minimalist approach and hybrid capabilities of this product. I bought it before a trip to the Little 'Mo this summer. When I got it out of the box to try on, one of the straps immediately ripped off of the pack part. "No big deal." I thought. "I can still fish it." So I loaded it up and packed it out the the river. When I got out of the car and put it on, the other strap ripped off. Great product, but the craftsmanship/construction is questionable. Didn't report it to Patagonia so I can't speak to how their customer service department would have handled the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product! I bought this about a month ago, and I could not be happier! Perfect amount of storage. I can fit everything I need and more without feeling bulky or weighed down. The ability to hold a hydration bladder as well is perfect for hot Colorado days on the river. Another great Patagonia product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea; terrible execution I loved the idea of this vest but the execution is terrible. The places to attach nippers and other tools are not functional and there are not enough of them in the right places. I had to do work arounds. When you fill the pack with water it gets pulled down from the back and that means your tools ride too high. You can't look down and get to them. You can't open the top pockets effectively with a full water bladder. The inside vest pockets aren't roomy enough. You can slide stuff in but its hard to know what you are pulling out. Great ideas but poor execution here. I would not recommend buying this product until they improve the design and test it much better. Finally there is no loop on the bottom to hold your rod while wading. There are loops for a rod holder but I don't see that has something worthwhile given the other limitations and that this would not likely be used for an overnight trip. I don't think this was a well thought out product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern version of classic I have been fly fishing for last 5 years and have tried everything from backpacks to waist packs to sling packs. Was willing to try Anything but the old fashion kaki fly fishing vest which just seemed so stuffy and out of date not to mention heavy. In constant search of a better way to carry my gear for a full day on the water. I gave the hybrid pack vest a try. .......I have found what I have been searching for!! This pack vest takes the practicality of an old fashion fishing vest and brings it in to modern day. Light weight materials, practical designed vest in front with perfect size pack in back. Minimalist enough to carry everything I need for a day fishing in the mountains without feeling like I am packed for a trip to Everest. Great product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roomy enough but makes you stick to the basics This vest has room for everything you need while you're in the river but eliminates the temptation carry a bunch of stuff you can really leave on the bank. I like it because it keeps things simple. Comfortable and easy to adjust. If I could make one change I'd have the fly patch on the other side (I'm right-handed.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great - and not just for the guys. I wanted a fly fishing vest that could handle my 2L Osprey hydration pack and with some trepidation ordered this Hybrid Vest. I was concerned that the vest would not work for me (5'5" and 32DD female) since the modeled vest seems to hit the mannequin right at bust (chest) level. Fear not any smallish female thinking about ordering this - it fits wonderfully. Unlike on the mannequin, this vest ends on me at the waist. It also has lots of great and usefully / logically located and sized pockets, holds my 2Ls of water (and even has a great strap on the upper right and left sides to attach my magnetic nozzle holder for the hydration pack), and is very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Minamalist Vest I use a Richardson Box for my flies but needed to find a light weight solution to carry additional gear and items for client use. I’m glad I chose the Hybrid Vest. Yes it is light, and the weight is mostly distributed on the shoulders as opposed to the neck—great for those full days on the water. I also like the back compartment and lashing system that allows me to carry that extra streamer box, extra tippet and other bits as well as a light piece of outerwear. If you’re looking for something comfortable and minimalist, I’d go with this vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is all you need This is it! This is all you need. I have used fanny packs, sling packs, vests etc...etc... I bought this a while ago and it is as high speed, low drag as it gets. Perfect amount of storage without over doing it. Perfect for a walking guide and personal fishing. Your search is over. Well done Patagonia. Enjoy Winston
