Default Filson mesh or guide vest

I am looking for a new vest and was curious if there are opinions on either of these two. I like the mesh vest but not sure it will fit four full size fly boxes?

A friend has one of these:

Fly Fishing Strap Vest | Filson

And if I were shopping for a "vest" in the Filson price range, I think it's about as good as it gets. Not an answer to your question, but hope it helps...

I almost bought the guide; but, it looks like it has a collar which makes it too warm for me. I went with the Foul Weather from Filson and love it.

"To go fishing is the chance to wash one's soul with pure air, with the rush of the brook, or with the shimmer of sun on blue water. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity toward tackle-makers, patience toward fish, a mockery of profits and egos, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is discipline in the equality of men - for all men are equal before fish."
