Default Re: Super Vest

Well I was able to test the idea of using a Type III Kayak fishing vest as wading PFD on a small stream and it worked great. On this particular small stream there are still areas where you can become submerged. It was nice to have water handy and the large sleeve openings provided plenty of room for casting. No need to worry about CO2 cartridges or finding the pull tab. I will need to test the idea on a large stream or river as the vest may interfere with aggressive deep water wading, but so far, the combination of a gortex wader and Kayak PFD seems to work.
