    Water Recovery Pouch

    What’s your favorite?


    Here are my observations


    GARRETT CAMO POUCH
    Gets full of water and air and looks like a bag pipe while in water. Punching holes in bottom for water to drain helps but not ideal

    All others that are open goodies float away while in water

    Only one that kinda works is this one with a mesh bottom and zipper pockets but it still seems awkward for me

    I picked up the Whites Signature Series utility pouch at Kellyco while detecting in FL last December. So far, I am very pleased with the ample storage for water bottles, pinpointer, coin pouch and large trash container with mesh bottom. It also has a zipper pocket for security.

    John in West Florida Pouch, this vid is 2010, still have the same pouch, but did purchase a back up a few years ago. Getting old, it's a bad thing to forget so got to have a extra in the ski. I like the fact all is zippered.

    Same as WW below. On ebay under JPFOTOG

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Over 2,000 hours in the water and still I can't find a better one. So I stopped.

    Pro Beach & Water Hunting Pouch -
    This is the pouch used by many of the most successful beach and water hunters
    . Made entirely of tough corrosion proof marine grade materials, this pouch will hold up to many years of hard use in fresh or salt water. PVC coated polyester industrial mesh allows water to drain from the front "goodies" pocket into the rear trash pocket and out the bottom.

    The large 11" x 10" main compartment holds your common finds such as coins and trash items. The smaller front pocket is designed to securely hold your valuable treasures. No "glint of gold" can be seen by wandering eyes! The zipper for this pocket has a pull string so that it can be differentiated from the trash pocket without needing to see it. Zippers are superior to Velcro for both ease of use and protecting your valuable finds from loss in heavy surf or while diving.

    The pouch is permanently attached to a 2" wide adjustable nylon belt with a super-strong polyacetal quick-release buckle. This allows the user to zip and unzip the treasure pocket with one hand.

    • Proven design
    • Made in USA
    • Perfect for water or land detecting
    • Large 11" x 10" trash pocket.
    • Secure YKK marine grade zippers.
    • Tough Ballistic Nylon and industrial mesh
    • No need to buy a separate belt
    • Fits waists up to 52 inches

    I have a few - but do use the Garrett one and put slits in bottom and works for me - I always put a piece of lead in bottom so it does not float up or flip up in rough water - works for me
    I also use a Kellyco one - has Velcro closure which is a pain - so I bought some Velcro and put strip on both sides so it stays open
    Hoping to put them both to use in a few days - gonna do some cold water hunting hopefully

    I have this one and the Kellyco one. Both have their plusses and minuses. The only real knock I have on this one is that it doesn't sift all that well with our course beach sand here in SoCal. With the fine sugar sand you have in Florida, it works ok though. The Kellyco one sifts good, but, as mentioned, the velcro can be a pain sometimes. It's a bit smaller too, so, if you haul out crusty aluminum cans from the surf like I do, you need all the room you can find. I also like the fact that this one has the stitched in belt, so, it doesn't accidentally slide out of the pouch while handling it, putting it on, or taking it off. The Kellyco one is half the price (and sometimes free with a purchase ), but, I've worn two of them out, whereas, I'm still on my first one of these. It's getting a bit worn in the corners however, so, I guess I should order a backup soon.

    That's the one (on eBay). I bought the 2" belt because my detecting partner has the 1 1/2" belt. Now its easy to tell which one is mine.

    This pouch is by far the pouch out there on the market. This pouch is rugged and will last forever.

    its on Ebay for 34.95 well worth the money.

    I just us an old fanny pack, it has two zippered compartments, one for trash and the other for treasure, and both have small grommets on the bottoms to drain water. I leave the trash side partially unzipped for ease of use. I have another fanny pack with a big quick release and wide belt that I wear with the bag behind me with a couple of homemade lead ingots for weight. I always position the quick release just to the front of my right hip for quick access. I'm cheap i guess.

    I am working on a new 3 zip pouch for $99.99...

    But for anyone I will make for half price for a limited time.

    Reason for this amazing deal is... "just because its you"

    :P

    Here is a sneak peak of it before assembly... of the high grade material...

    Cheap Walmart fanny pack.
    They used to be $5.99, I pick up a few, when they're in stock at the "tourist" Walmart.
    Not all have the same stock, so I have to check a couple of different stores.
    Last time I looked, I think they went up a dollar or so, plus, they had some that were a little more heavy duty material, with a Marlins logo or some other team, nah.... I don't go for that, I like simple.

    Hahaha, I also incorporate AARCs' method of multiple freezer ziplocs to keep keys etc dry....
    Oddly, these cheap little fanny packs, seems to last a really long time, too....
