The Highwater PFD Vest by Patagonia is an airy, but trim-fitting PFD that doubles as a basic fishing vest (patent 6773318); features a 500-denier Cordura nylon shell, 200-denier nylon oxford lining and 100% polyester mesh on lower back.

The constant boat-angling dilemma: you know you should wear one, but who wants to fish all day in a life vest? Here's the solution: the Highwater Vest is a full-on USCG-approved Type III personal flotation device that's also a trim-fitting, functional fishing vest. Better yet, it's so comfortable and allows such a wide range of motion, you'll forget you're even wearing a PFD. The Highwater features Gaia foam that's lighter than conventional foam and free of CFC-ozone-depleting materials, without sacrificing performance. Deft adjustment points, die-cut/hand-skived foam and an open-mesh back keep the profile slim (and cool and comfortable to wear, even in a high-backed kayak seat or float tube). The low neckline, narrow chest and short waist create large armholes for unimpeded casting. Details: front zipper and four buckles for easy on and off, adjustable shoulder and side straps, two large flapped pockets with piggyback mesh pockets, two D-rings on the front and one on the back.
