Allen Gallatin Ultra Light Strap Pack Fishing Vest

This vest for fly fishing takes a slightly different approach to the others we are reviewing today.

Here, the focus is on making the vest as light as possible. Instead of covering the vest with as many pockets as possible, this vest uses an open back design, and two front-mounted pockets.

This has great advantages in terms of comfort. Not only is the vest lighter than a traditional style, but it is extremely well ventilated. This means that you can stay out fishing on those long summer days, whilst still having all your important equipment easily to hand.

PROS
  • Whilst this vest has been designed to be as lightweight as possible, it actually has a pretty good carrying capacity. The two front pockets are able to accommodate a surprisingly large amount of equipment, so even if you like to carry huge fly boxes around, this is a good vest to do it in.
  • Though this design of this vest for fly fishing does not include a fabric back and shoulders, it is comfortable. Your gear is held securely on a set of padded straps. These are wide enough not to cut into your shoulders, even with heavy loads, and are also very strong.
  • If you are particularly big, or are looking for a pack for your child, this pack is a good option. The fact that the main body here is just straps gives this vest a huge degree of adaptability, meaning that one size will fit almost anyone.
CONS
  • None, for the price. Some may want a few more pockets, but overall this is a good minimal solution that really comes into its own on hot days.
