Re: New Vest
I have an Orvis Battenkill Pro mesh vest that came without a loop to hold the rod. I used some leather shoe lace and attached it through the mesh with a square knot to make a rod holder loop. I placed this on the right bottom side of the vest about at a 45 degree angle from the velcro tab on the left side of the chest. You would think Orvis could have added this as it's on the regular Battenkill Pro vest. The only reason I got this vest was in exchange for one of their Tech vests that had a waterproof zipper that failed with a digital camera in it! I have an old Herters vest that has lasted longer than the three Orvis vests I've owned, however the new vests are comfortable.
