    I have and use both, depending on what I'm fishing for. I have my Watermark for Steel; I like the backpack feature on that, a mesh shorty vest for general trout fishing. For Hex time I like the chest pack; I also use that for most of my Smallie fishing.

    I have been trying to find the chest pack Frank showed the picture of; but Orvis quit making it I have been told. If anyone knows where I can find one please shoot me a PM.

    I stopped wearing vests a long time ago. I found that they were too easy to overload. Now I'll either use a chest pack or load up my pockets depending on what I'm doing.

    Default packs are overrate

    i fish fresh water and am happy with my vest..the biggest ting i dont like about packs is you have all that room to fill up and thats just more weight to carry around all day..and to be quite frank some people just look plain funny with a big old pack on them

    Both, and I use an old C.C. Filson strap vest made of their oiled cotton. It isn't a vest, it isn't a chest pack, and it does have a pack on the back for whatever. Pretty cool, I've been using it about 11 years or so and It gets better looking with each passing year.

    I currently use this pack in the regular size and have been pretty happy with it. While it is a smaller pack it does carry everything that I have needed. The only thing that I wish it had was a loop to hang a net from.

    Like the FishPond San Juan chest pack because it prevents me from becoming a pack animal. As long as I have pockets, I think I must fill them.
