I have tried them all, started with a vest, to hot and hard to get to water bottle in rear pouch. Tried an Orvis back pack. Again hot and to many dodads to catch fly line. Tried chest pack, a man with a beer gut the chest pack stuck out to far. Went to Fishpond fanny pack. Love it, except again beer gut with no bu_ _ lead to fanny pack around knees when hiking. I then got tired of messing with it on one trip, went for a day with just lanyard and fly box in pocket. Of course i didn't get real far from road, at most a mile. I found out that most of the stuff I carry is never used. On long trips I now use my Filson strap vest, the rear pouch is big enough to hold my jet boil and food and first aid kit.
