Rated 4 out of 5 by Doc Hamfat This is a well designed fishing vest for most purposes
The Master Sportsman Convertible Mesh Back Fishing Vest is well designed for most purposes for which one would use it. The zip-off feature which removes the bottom section shortens it to a deep wader's shorty vest but also limits the storage considerably by eliminating pockets inside and out all the way around. That being said, however, it is seemingly as well made as vests retailing for much more - and besides having a different label or slightly changed configuration - is nowadays realistically the same vest made in the same Asian factory. The material looks to be up to industry standards and several different ways of adjusting closure and fit are built in. I am right between a size XL and XXL when it comes to outerwear I'll use over bulky clothing (like waders), and the XXL was hugely too big for me. The replacement in XL was immediately sent out to me by Dicks - I received the replacement before I even had a chance to mail back the original - and it looks like it will work out great for me. I'll also add that Dick's price on this item was about the same as the lowest online or big-box stores with the added convenience and value of home delivery, a plus for someone like me who lives out in the country. A good vest at a fair price.

Men do not window shop because we know exactly what we want. But do not let Dick's Sporting Goods policy dissuade you. As with all their goods, most any item they carry but may not have in your local store (like this seasonal item) they will ship directly to your home. In my case, this vest was shipped free and was promised in 5 to 10 days; it arrived in just 2 days, 46 hours to be exact. Quality & comfort, zipper function and overall workmanship are excellent!
Color me Happy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ddm086 Comfortable
This vest is very comfortable the extra padding on the neck is great. Everywhere you look there is a pocket for something. I can fit my entire tackle box in here. I love being able to take off the bottom section when hopping on my float tube. The vest is very well made and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy62 Mesh back vest
Great piece of fishing equipment. Mesh back helps you to stay cooler in the hot sun. The bottom removable section a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nematode I like all the pockets
Looks like plenty of pockets for the fly boxes and other accessories that I carry. I also like that the bottom of the vest is removable for when I need to wade deep. For the price it gets an ecxellent overall rating and good value rating. As far as quality, it seems good right now, but it would be unfair to rate it higher than average as I have not had it very long and don't know yet if it will hold up to my heavy use.
