retractors Review by David

Built in retractors make all the difference. No one else does this.
Price is high, but I got what I paid for! Review by James

I am kind of gadget person for everything I do. Sometimes over prepared and compared before enjoy the action. :-) For fishing vest, this is the best among everyone I tried in the market. You will be surprised how light and comfortable it is when you wear! You know what? This is only the jacket that I have spare pockets after I store everything I need, including rain jacket in the large pouch on the back. I love it!
Pocket Love Review by Mosaic

I've been using my Simms Guide Vest for several months. I am pretty finicky about my equipment and I expect high performance; the quality of Simms products always exceeds my expectations and this vest is no exception. I love the ergonomically placed pockets - all necessary gear is easily accessible. The built-in zingers are an added bonus!
Best vest on the market PERIOD Review by Dougie

Nothing not to like about this vest. A practical design for professional use. Been using the vest for more years than I can remember? It has all of the features needed in a professional vest: the pockets are large, perfectly sized for fly boxes, tools, sunglasses, tippet, reels, large back storage compartment,etc. It has more pockets than I can even use on the inside of the vest without weighing myself down for a full day on the water. I can't see myself even wanting to even try another type of vest. I absolutely love the "super-fly patch". I recommend buying several of the "super fly patches", as my vest did not come with the foam patch. My vest was true to color as seen on the advertisement, khaki color - but a few years ago.
