UPDATED FOR 2021
The Snowbee Fly Vest/Backpack now comes with two dedicated rod tube holders and an enlarged water bottle compartment, combining the convenience of a fly vest coupled with the storage capacity of a backpack.
840D rip-stop polyester with PU coating makes this fly vest backpack waterproof and built to last.
Front Vest Storage
The front vest section incorporates all the features you would expect on a modern fly vest. On the front are two large box design pockets with two smaller box pockets in front of them, providing the perfect place to fit different sizes of fly boxes. Additionally, there are two concealed coil retractors with tube pockets below to drop forceps and nippers into, which will stop them from swinging around. Elasticated loops plus a rod loop and Velcro tab are also on the front of the vest for convenience. Four zippered internal pockets and two side mesh pockets provide storage space for tippet spools, leaders, and other small items. Plus, for even more storage space there are a further four more mesh pockets inside the vest.
Rear Backpack Storage
The rear backpack offers ample storage for the roving, mobile angler who desires to carry everything needed for a day’s fishing. The large main compartment can be more than doubled in size, by means of a zippered, bellows expander panel. The smaller external pocket has mesh pouch pockets both inside and on the exterior. Across the bottom of the backpack is a mesh/nylon pocket for a water bottle and there are ample D-rings for attaching landing nets and accessories.
Padded air-mesh back and should straps keep you cool and support heavy loads effortlessly, keeping the weight on your shoulders, not on your neck.
Adjustable shoulder and side straps mean one size fits all.

This vest is very comfortable due to the padded air mesh back & shoulder straps. I like option to zip up front of vest or use buckle to allow more ventilation with warm weather. Lots of storage too. Highly recommend!
Fly Vest Backpack
Looks durable and very well planned out, have yet to fish with it but soon, real soon
I really like what I see and what I have experimented with this vest pack. Plenty of room for my fly boxes, tippets, first aid kit, rain jacket and room to spare. Can’t wait to use it on a River!!! Quality seems to be top notch and it seems to be well made and thought out. Hope to run it thru it’s paces soon.
I own one of these and I can say the stitching is GREAT! Sturdy materials and LOTS of storage! I am typically a "chest pack guy" but find myself wearing this more often than I thought!
