: Best Vest - Pack Combination?

12-20-2013, 08:44 PM
I'm looking for a vest-pack combination for warm weather tours. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I am considering the following three:

- Umpqua Swiftwater Tech Vest + Surveyor 1100
- Patagonia Sweet Pack Fly Fishing Vest
- Fishpond Wildhorse Tech Pack

Any advice would be welcome!

By 'warm water' do you mean tropical (bonefish/tarpon) or freshwater bass? My experience for bonefish is that the heaviest thing to carry is water. The flies are small and you only need a few as long as they are the right ones :)
