The Experience Vest is a non-bulky, no tangle adjustable vest that can carry all you need. Keywords are Good capacity, clean outer, great freedom of movement and lightweight. The vest is constructed from 210 denier oxford nylon with mesh lining, which gives a durable outer shell and comfortable inner/back. The pocket design with the adjustable internal divider gives you maximum flexibility to adapt the vest’s pockets to your fly boxes. The divider also makes sure the top boxes don’t fall out or down when you pick out the bottom one. Apart from the Velcro fly patch on the left chest, the two sides of the vest are identical. Guideline have made it this way to ensure everything can be stored in its most natural place for you.
The Experience Vest is designed to keep tools and gadgets safe/firm and still handy, no dangling stuff. The vest is convertible and integrates with the Experience and Alta backpacks in just a minute. However, Guideline has given the vest an ergonomic cut to make sure that shoulder straps from a backpack don’t interfere with the vest design. Carry both, side by side! This vest is made for all kinds of fishing and it equally suits both the minimalist and the ones that must have those “just in case” boxes handy. Great capacity, top functionality in a low profile, compact design!
