I really like the simms vertical guide vest, which is definitely one of the best I have seen. Very light, many functional and large pockets and nice short cut for deep wading, some of our ladies in czech representative team have them though the vest isnt lady cut. And I will in future buy this one probably too

Fishpond also make some nice ladies vests but I dont like much the "ornament" design.
I have an old Patagonia vest (the one with two pockets at the back) and it's been superb. They don't make them any more, but they sometimes come up on ebay. No reason it wouldn't fit a female form either - it's loose-fit mesh.

Look no further Airflo Outlander Mesh Vest, loads of pockets, really sturdy and very light, and at a great price from Glasgow Angling Centre. It is a very suitable for wading and will put up a review soon.

I'll 2nd that Steven, if you have any doubts check the reviews... And if you need anything else at all have a look at ian-woods webpage or PM him and he will do you a very competitive deal on anything else you may need for the coming season. The guy is a pleasure to deal with as are all on here Worse that can happen if you don't like it you will get your money back for it at this price

I don't use vests much now and prefer to use a sling pack. I use the smaller 2011 version of this but I might get a magnum pack this year.

Polly if longevity and plenty of pockets is the way to go follow Christys advice and mine the Tacklepack from Orvis takes some beating .
If you organise it properly and have a place for everything and return it to that pocket not too confusing .
BTW re longevity mine is now heading for 25 + years old
However new items can confuse ,december i bought two pairs of polaroid over glasses ,the sunny day ones went missing ,that is until last week when I found them in a not usually used inside pocket ,my excuse last time worn was exceeding cold of the bank at Grafham and it started raining so swapped to the low lite ones and in my rush to get warm in the Wheatsheaf forgot where I put them .
