    I spent years fishing streams and small rivers for trout with all of my gear in the two breast pockets of a BDU blouse, and I had a little room left over. These days I use a 'shorty' vest that has way too many pockets, and almost all of them are empty. Funny thing is every once in a while I find (or re-find) a pocket I didn't know was there. The list of what is in my empty-pocketed vest was already been covered.
    I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.

    I agree. If I really need 5 pockets, then 8 pockets is OK. 18 pockets will leave me constantly searching the unused pockets looking for stuff I didn't put in them.

    I just ordered a vest, but the military clothing option works well for a lot of outdoor activities. Now if only my Supply SGT would issue me some waders

    That's not to say that I, and probably Fred, didn't use to carry a vest full of stuff. I think we all have at some point in time. 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?
