Just wish someone would make a PFD for people with large breasts...
Pockets are really too small to be effective as a fishing vest.
Really comfortable. The pockets are handy and are easy to access. The external tethers and lashing points are great also for keeping things close at hand. I also like the fabric and construction. So, many PFD feel cheap with thin nylon; but the Stohlquist Fisherman feels like it has cordura covering it. Seems like it will last a long and I don't worry about hooks getting snagged and tearing a hole.
Great life vest, especially for kayak fishing since the lumbar portion of the vest is just mesh. This enables you to sit in a kayak seat all day with no discomfort from the vest.
