RE:Chest-Packs

I really like the front and back storage compartments. Another thing that is really important is double zipper handles to allow opening the compartment partially from the top to prevent things from falling out. Lightweight is important to me.

For wading, I like enough room in the back for water, snack, flashlight extra flybox and a spare spool. In the front - main flybox, leader spools, measuring tape, compass, hone, whistle, etc. I typically carry the cell phone in pockets but am about to add a hand held GPS to the list of items and probably need to expand my capacity as well.

Found some good ones online at <!--http--><a href="http://www.patagonia.com/products/productline/productpage.ehtml?maincat=other&browsetype=product type&browsecat=luggage&collection=theworks&itemid= 48148" target="_blank">Patagonia</a><!--url-->, <!--http--><a href="http://bucksbags.com/access1.htm" target="_blank">Bucks Bags</a><!--url-->, <!--http--><a href="http://bwsports.com/cv2large.html" target="_blank">BW Sports</a><!--url-->, <!--http--><a href="http://fishingwholesale.bizland.com/equipment/wgear_chestpack.htm" target="_blank">another,</a><!--url--> <!--http--><a href="http://www.xstreamgear.com/flyfchest.html" target="_blank">or this one,</a><!--url--> <!--http--><a href="http://www.ccfilson.com/tacklepacksh.html" target="_blank">and last but not least here.</a><!--url-->

I'll go check out the brand of the one I have now and let you know.
