I've been looking to replace my backpack with a pocket vest for some time now.  Bass Pro Shops has a good one on sale for $19.95.  It's branded White River and while intended for fly fishing, holds everything that I want it to.  Now I have my camera, binoculars, cache maintenance and trading items handy at all times and can quickly access them rather than fighting to slip off the backpack. I bought it one size larger than I usually take so that it will let air in between it and me on the hot days and also give more room to load up the pockets.

I use a similar vest (Duck Hunting) lots of small pockets and also a larger pocket on the back. Plenty of room to carry things.

I can't find a White River vest for $19.95, could you be speaking of this White River Vest thats on sale for $14.99. I would love to have one of these nice looking vests but they don't come in jumbo.
I dream of being able to purchase this Cruiser Forester's Vest that comes in 5X, but I don't have the funds.

Hmmm...I have a great photography vest that has a mesh back...I might have to try that this summer!

Quinn, bummer on the fanny pack laughter...how about a lumbar pack?  I love mine made by Marmot.  It sure beats having your shoulders be tired from a backpack.  They can be found at camping type stores and maybe catalogs like campmore and rei.

Suzy :D
