Since this post started, I have been thinking about my stance on the topic. Although I don't own a chest pack, I can see the convenience. When I was out in Wyoming, I wore a Kelty Lumbar Pack, which is a fancy name for a big bitch ass fanny bag. I liked the freedom and the fact that I stayed cool for the most part. The down side was everytime you wanted to get something, you had to dig around to find it. I like the vest because it keeps everything in its own place.I like the fishpond stuff that is kind of a cross between a zip up chest pack, vest, and back pack. I tend to overpack on everything, so it has a lot of room, the downside is that it would end up being heavy as hell.As for the downstream Chest luggage, presented above, the only thing I can say positive about it is that it will store under your seat on an airplane. One of the old owners of Choo Choo Fly Tackle tried to get me to buy an aluminum version of that thing. I bet it weighed 5-6 lbs empty.
