What goes in *YOUR* vest or chestpack?

I guess this all depends on what/where/who. I use both, the vest for sweetwater and chestpack for saltwater flyfishing or when rowing in rivers to keep the arms free.

For a chest pack, I prefer the type with compartments in front and back, although the back is a pain to reach it affords a lot of extra space I need. Ideally the rear compartment is removable. I like what Prof. Bodkin did with his new model - no metal zippers to corrode! I look forward to trying it out this summer. Right now I use the Riversmith model with front and rear compartments... very nice but the zippers are corroding badly from the salt.

Chestpack -

front compartment

line clipper on cord
doll needle for nail knots
hook hone
common tippet spools
energy bar

Rear Compartment:

extra spool w/ different line
extra line clipper
bug lotion
small flashlight
small first aid
every leader diameter spool from 40# to 12# (Maxima)
extra flybox - out of the ordinary patterns

Seems like I am forgetting something...
