Filson Fly Vest

Can anyone offer opinions on any of the Filson flyfishing vests? I want quality and function and wondered if they are worth the price.

It's old.
It's well made.
It's too heavy.
It's bulletproof.
It's not high tech.
It's cold when wet.
It looks better if used often.
... just like me.

If it would just wear out
I might look at the "new stuff".
... but probably not.

I had one...but used it in saltwater...... I did take care of it but the snaps would freeze up on me at the pockets...The one I am talking about is the short vest with the two pockets. I wouldn't buy one again with all the other things out there.

Well, I used my own judgement and bought the Filson. Got a brand new one for $70 on eBay. If it holds up and performs like the other Filson products I have I'll be happy. One of the things I really like about it over others is the security of zippered and snapped pockets for billfold, cell phone, etc. instead of velcro.
