Vestpac ICAST New Product Showcase Winner 2011

Walking around ICAST a lot of products certainly caught my. As I walked past the VestPac booth I noticed a man wearing something interesting looking around his chest. I approached Paul, the guy wearing the device, and ask about the product. He walked me through his demonstration; and I had to admit that I could certainly see where this could come in handy.

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.

Great demo and the pack looks awesome. I'm going to have to try to make ICast next year. It looks like a must see.
