Made of British Millerain, a fabric which thanks to waxing is wind and water resistant, not repellent. This model is inspired by the “Lee Wulff Tak-L-Pac” fishing jacket; It is believed that the first fishing vest modern was tied in the winter of 1930-31 by Lee Wulff. Wulff was a highly creative angler, fly tyer, and outdoor writer having (among other things) developed the line of dry flies that bears his name. he wanted a vest that an angler could wear over their clothing and that would give them easy access to fly boxes and other equipment.Well, the idea was a good one, and as we all know by now, many anglers loved it. Therefore the vest was improved in its design and was first put on the market immediately after World War 2. It was called “Lee Wulff Tak-L-Pac” and was made by Masland of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
