So if you want to wear it for a while, it probably won't cause any permanent harm. You can always load up most of the pockets with streamside rocks and get some cardio workout benefit.
Great Call P22! Before I became a full time 'fluff chucker' I was a gear guy fishing for Steelhead up in Washington/BC. Came home exhausted (and probably without hooking a fish). One day, then wife-type, said STOP! and went and got the bathroom weigh scale and had me pull off all the **** I had on down to my 'skivvies.'

If memory serves, I 'lost' 32 pounds.

How much do you really need?

Remember having a public argument with a Marine Corp Sargent-Major-Advisor as to required field gear: My answer .... "All I need is extra water and more ammo clips." (1962-1963)

There was a Viet N long before the war became popular with our Government.
