I walked away and didn’t really think anything more about it until I walked by and saw Isaac also talking to Paul about the VestPac. I approached them and immediately heard Isaac ask the question, “Will it fit over my PFD?”.
Hmmm. With all of the recent talk about safety on the site, I didn’t want to publish an article about a product that would prevent kayak anglers from wearing their PFD but if this can be worn over the PFD and comfortably, now we’re talking.
So I ran over to our good friends at NRS and ask to borrow a PFD. Paul put the PFD on and the VestPac over it and gave us this demonstration as I captured it on video.
I think that this is a very cool product and one that I’m sure we will be hearing a lot more about in the future. In fact this product took winner as the Best Fly Fishing Accessory at this year's ICAST.
