I hate vests. I wear something like a lanyard around my neck that was made for flyfishing. It holds all my essentials on it and just throw a fly box in my pocket. I actually bought a small chest pack this winter that I might try using mainly to carry a camera and my wallet. On all day trips, I have a small backpack that I carry a lunch and some drinks in. Vests are just way too hot to wear in the summer.
