I guess it depends on the fishing situation. Chest packs are great when you need to carry a lot of gear, when for example, you are going to be tromping around all day and need water, spare reels etc. You can adjust your cast when fishing a single hander without sacrificing too much distance, although they are a pain when fishing a double hander, as it becomes difficult to sharply pull in the bottom hand when overhead casting.

Generally I prefer to travel as light as I can.
