Gone are the days of floppy bucket hats, big rubber boots, and canvas fishing vests with wool fly patches, but we're pretty sure that's a good thing. The Umpqua Swiftwater ZS Tech Vest is designed with the modern angler in mind and, accordingly, it has more pockets than you can shake your fast-action graphite stick at. Designed with Umpqua's new Zero Sweep technology, the Swiftwater now sports a streamlined design to reduce snagging and catching, but still maintains the comfortable padded and load-bearing build to keep the pack comfortable, even if you're carrying just about every piece of fishing equipment you own.The Swiftwater may not look like it's packed full of features at first glance, but behind its seemingly simple design are four front compartments for fly boxes, tools, and accessories, and an additional 800 cubic inches. of storage space in the back compartment for large items like extra layers, lunch, and a few extra spools. Two front tool sheaths keep your clamps and cutters close at hand, and the four internal Hypalon attachment points keep nippers with retractors secured to the inside of the pack. The shoulder straps and hip belt can all be adjusted to dial in the perfect fit for all-day comfort on the river, too.
