That is my favorite vest for what you describe. I am going to give this one a try as soon as I can get to water.
that is the only vest i use. fits everything i need. for once pata priced an item close to what it's worth. used it all last year highly recommend.
I have written before that I really like the Meshmaster 2 for a light vest. I wouldn't call it a strap vest but it does have vertical pockets and has been my go to for several years. I did replace the wool patch with industrial Velcro and hang a magnet on the back for my net.
If your Filson is no longer wanted, I d happily rid you of it :-DFor over 25 years I used the filson strap vest -- which sits quite high. But I decided to go with something to hold a bit more and to provide more water protection, as well as to get most tools off of my chest and on my shoulder or back. So I went with the FP thunderhead sling -- here's a snapshot of it this last year... I do like it so far especially for changing flies -- it provides a safety drop for flies when slipped around; but a key to using this sling efficiently is to organize the vast empty compartment into smaller 'grab' bags of stuff for easy sourcing and access.
