Ham Radio Tactical Vest
For years I have used different methods of carrying the personal items that I feel I cannot leave home without, while being involved in amateur radio on any given day.
Now this most always includes an HT or two as well, and for some time I've used a radio chest harness in several different versions that allowed me to carry several HT's, but did not really allow for carrying much of anything else.
Always looking for another method of carrying the various items of importance to me throughout the course of the day, I continued off and on to look at the various types of vests available, and for the most part these vests were of the military type of vest that allows for customization related to the users needs.
Although at first glance they appeared to be the answer, upon closer examination I realized they were great if you were in the military or part of a police force, but were not really suited to amateur radio use.
Then I remembered the fact that photographers have been wearing fly-fishing vests for years, having re-purposed them for their need while working as a photographers, allowing them to stash filters, lens caps, lens cleaning cloths, spare batteries, pens, note books, sun glasses, etc., and everything else that they might need while out on a shoot.
I have been there myself, and have a vest that I use depending on the circumstances while out working as a photographer on assignment.
