Re: Going back to the Old, new-Fashioned Vest
I never got away from using a vest. In fact my LLBean trout vest is the same one that I've been using since the late '70s. It was well made but doesn't have a halfatrillion pockets like "newer" vests do, so I've never had issues with "too heavy" or "too much cr@p" that other former vest users seem to complain about.
I tried a chest pack exactly one day. Not for me.
