A really great versatile vest
Recently purchased the Simms G3 Guide Vest on-line from the Platte River Fly shop. The vest fits true to size, has plenty of pockets and looks and feels good and is very versatile. Looking forward to my next trout trip. My shopping experiences with Platte river have always been excellent. The website is easy to navigate and order from. The prices are great and the shipping is superior. My vest shipped the same day ordered and delivered two days later. Will continue to look first for Simms and other fishing equipment at Platte River.

Simms Vest
It's hard to beat Simms for practical, field-tested products. They are a bit pricey, but generally worth every penny, especially when Platte River Fly Shop gives you a killer deal! This vest allows for personalized organization and has more pockets than a marsupial museum.

Best fishing vest on market
I’m made a lot of research to replace my old patagonia fishing vest, and finally decided for this one. Like always, Simms exceeded my expectations. Simms is “THE” brand for fly fishing, where details always make the difference. In this vest i found everything I needed and more. Lots of pockets. Perfect size. Build in zingers. It is light and comfortable. Proffesional stuff.

Love this Vest
This is the first vest I have bought in over 25 years. Previously had an Orvis Takl-pkt vest. This vest has so many features I wanted and the material is light, cool, very attractive. The pockets are well placed, and there are many. The pockets for fly boxes are varied in size, and zipper configuration. The back has two pockets, one short for carrying things you might want reach without taking off the vest, and a deeper one for a rain jacket (or lunch). I used to wear a medium, but when fishing in cooler weather it was too small. I am a size 41 chest and the large fits perfectly. I like that it has 4 D-rings, two built in lanyards, and tiny pockets to organize tippet and small things. Overall, a very handy configuration. I am a vest man, not a sling pack guy, and if you are too, I highly recommend this vest.
