Well yeah, you could get a chest-pack. If you want to be a fashionista and fit in with all the trendy wannabe's wandering the rivers, pretending that they actually know what they're doing, by all means, proceed to the pack section. But there's something about the classic look of a vest, and you've known it all along. It just screams 'wisdom.' So don't worry about what people think. Grab the most versatile fly-fishing organizer, period, and get out there and catch fish. Without looking like a poser.
