Patagonia's Minimalist Mesh Vest

Ok, so I've only been fly fishing once. But I've been wanting one of these for a long time. Most of them scream, "I'm about to catch something very big and slippery with teeth," but not this one.

The Patagonia Minimalist Mesh Vest is perfect for urban fishing treks (ur, make that shopping and lunching) when you don't want to carry a purse. Small camera, phone and keys fit easily in the vertical front pockets, plus there's a loop for sunglasses and a large back pocket.

Not that I'm planning on leaving the city in it, but good to know that "for ultimate backcountry performance, the modular front detaches for attachment to Patagonia's Stormfront® Pack or Sweet Fish Pack."

Mesh body is 100% polyester mesh. Pockets are 100% nylon, with a Deluge® DWR (Patagonia's proprietary durable water repellent) finish.

Minimalist Mesh Vest comes in Alpha Green and is $129.
