waist length fly vest

Hi

Does anyone know where i can get a good quality waist length
flyvest?

For years i've been wanting a quality vest, but havn't been able
to find any in Australia.

I just dont like the deep wade vests.

thanks
Sean

The waist-length vest is a popular item in the pacific northwest where many anglers using conventional gear fish with only hip-waders.

I would shy away from the flyfishing vest makers to locate a waist length vest as the waist length is too long for chest waders and most flyfishers use chest waders.

can't recommend a brand though, I use the shortest of the short with the highest of the high chest waders
