Producing the materials used in fishing gear can have a serious impact on the environment. Made with entirely regenerated nylon waste materials, like fishing nets and old carpets, the Upstream Tech Vest represents our industry-leading effort toward sustainable design. As the first vest on the market with an integrated net slot, we weren’t simply content with a product that was built with environmental conservation in mind. With 14 interior and exterior compartments, including two front pockets capable of holding up to 4 large fly boxes each, these new vests allow you to carry everything but the kitchen sink. Adjustable shoulder straps, waist straps, and a front zipper closure ensure a perfect fit for a long day on the water. Remember that old shag carpet in your grandfather’s den? Thanks to the effort to recover and regenerate nylon waste, it might just grow up to be a fishing vest.

Fell Short

by Matt

I had high hopes for this vest, it fell short on two fronts. The net holder in the back is useless , it is dam near impossible to get the net into place, especially if you have anything at all in the back pouches. Another major annoyance is just putting the vest on when it’s loaded with gear, it twists and turns , you need to be a yoga master to get it on. Forget about putting it on with the net in place. You’ll see it on eBay this spring.. I gave it a two because I did find the from of the vest worked well.
