Topics I've Started
03 March 2010 - 10:42 AMI love paintball no doubt about it as I think about it everyday. But I also like to fish and with trout season coming up here in PA in just a little over a month I got out my old fishing vest and started prepping for the upcoming season. While fiddling with my old beat up cotton fabric vest I started to fret about not having enough space in it for my gear. You see I do not carry a tackle box like many anglers do instead opting to keep everything I need on my vest much the same way we paintball players do. As I finally finished up packing my lure boxes and gear into the vest something struck me, "Why not use my old Dagger vest?" and off I went. When it was all said in done sadly my old Dagger vest just didn't have the space for all of my tackle which then sent me promptly to the vest builder here to start building my own.
Why a Spec Ops fishing vest? For me it's simple, top quality materials and construction. Most fishing vests on the market today are made of cotton which when it gets wet stays that way. Now there are mesh based vests available and in speaking from experience they just do not hold up as long as they should Add in the fact that they have cotton pockets on them and durability again comes to the foreground as a rip can easily occur while trudging through shrubs and thorn bushes to get to that elusive fish.
My dagger vests, all of them, have held up now to a multitude of beatings both on the field and off without nary a tear along the pouches. The mesh dries quickly allowing you to remain more comfortable during the long day of paintball and potentially fishing. Also with shoulder padding the Spec Ops' vests are vastly more comfortable over the long run. I don't know anyone who goes fishing for just an hour or two thus the importance of a vest that remains comfortable all day long.
As a long time angler I have a good feeling that if Extreme Stitchworks decided to put forth a quality fishing vest it could make an impact on the market. Fishing is huge, watch ESPN or Versus every weekend morning (when your not playing paintball) and see for yourself the possibility of a Spec Ops branded vest in the marketplace. Add in the fact that it can be made in a variety of different camo patterns and the such and pretty soon the fish will never see you coming.
Just thought I'd put this out there as to be honest the vest builder gets close to what I personally would want but just falls short of a couple of items.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to everyone's ideas and views on this.
04 November 2009 - 07:40 AMI don't know how many would be interested but an omnipat Santa hat would be great for those holiday season events. Any thought about maybe producing them as a special of some sort? Many fields in the NE run charity events starting in November and I try to make as many as possible and would rock one of those caps at each event.
