This is similar to the Stolquist Fisherman for about 3/4 the price. Offered by Bass Pro Shops. I'm not sure if Ascend is the manufacturer or if it is made by another PFD manufacturer for sale at outlets like BPS. This jacket is durable and comfortable. Sometimes I forget I have it on. The large stiff pockets are handy and inside are sleeves and attachment features to help keep stuff organized. I've used it for about 6 years now and it's still in great shape even though it gets sort of mistreated and tossed around. Lots of options for attaching things. I keep my Leatherman tool attached to the shoulder strap so its easily accessible when needed.
I will likely wear this PFD when wade fishing due to the multiple pockets and loops for attaching accessories. Price is also $30 less then most similar model. Likely the same manufacturer.
Best PFD I have every owned. Built for paddling and fishing!
