Not that great IMO

Reviewed by Douglas from Michigan on Monday, April 24, 2017
I bought the FP Vaquero vest from my local fly shop at twice the STP price only to be disappointed within a few trips out on the river. I'm pretty wide at 230 lbs but the pouches on this vest get in the way while casting. The back is also hot from limited ventilation. Additionally the old fashioned brass zippers are difficult to zip with one hand. Finally, the pocket in back is too small for a rain jacket. Some good points too .... the super strong D ring on the back is the best I have ever seen for example. It looks cool ....but the functional problems vastly outweigh the cool factor.
