Still wearing a Columbia, just like PT's. It's been sewed and mended, etc for years.
When I fish creeks or know I'm just going to dry or dry/dropper fish all day I switch to a pouch (worn with a sling) that will hold a days worth of stuff....and I prefer that. But when fishing where I need the full arsenal, the vest is still the answer for me...
It's hard to downsize what I carry....and I like the idea that if an opportunity arises grabbing the vest is a one step exit strategy
