    I'll put them up, I want to show the lights on the detectors for low light/night detecting too. I'll try and take that soon and get it up.

    My stuff is multi use...I do turkey hunt and fly fish and saw how easy it made detecting for me to have dual uses in the vests...after reading all the comments I'm definitely in the minority! lol!

    I haven't bought a 'summer size' vest for detecting... mine go over fall and winter clothing, but they work fine, just kinda big, but since I carry when detecting the larger size conceals it better.

    Thanks for everyone's responses....I appreciate it!

    Here's a pic of the Panther Button Lights I was talking about...they can be bought in larger quantities to put just about anywhere, great for power outages too and Waterproof!

    For everyday general detecting I wear a couple of belts and pouches, as it helps to distribute things. I carry one setup that has a couple of water bottles and a pouch for my keys wallet, and phone, then I have my Garrett diggers pouch with my pin-pointer attached, and a small tool carrier that holds my Lesche digging tool, a screwdriver (aka old-school shallow clad popper), and a small flashlight. In my car I keep a bag with spare batteries for my detector and pin-pointer, a Swiss Army knife, spare gloves, spare coil hardware, spare strap for my knee pads, generic Tylenol, sunscreen, bug repellent, hand-sanitizer, and a magnifying glass.

    I also have a photographers vest that I wear when out in the gold fields, relic detecting, or for many cache hunts. That has a compact pair of binoculars in it, along with a treasure signs and symbols pocketbook, compass, map of the area, pen and note pad, whistle, signalling mirror, magnesium fire starter, space blanket, cleaning rag, spare batteries, headlamp, camera, plastic gold vile, plastic tweezers, and anything that I need/want that is specific to that hunt.

    Inexpensive, but finished my 2nd year with and believe I'll be purchasing another just like it following my 3rd year with it.

    I use the coin elite pouch like yours. One of the best size and functional pouchs I have seen. It's a very well built bag to. For anyone looking do a search for coin elite detecting pouch on E Bay and they will pop up.

    (See Pic's) My pouch is pretty clean because I take the time to blow it of with my air compressor after every hunt. This has kept the pouch in like new shape. As said it is a well built pouch.

    All The Best,
    Bill G

    Relic Hunting
    I wear the Garrett bag with the belt, but I put my Lesch tool on my real leather belt and wear my pin pointer like a Texas jock strap holster most of the time so I don’t have to look behind me to find it, however, I am getting a heavy duty canvas back pack for Christmas for the rest of the s*** I find necessary to haul out there like batteries, a wide selection of coils, gloves, water, wireless head phones, granola bars, tooth brush, clean towel or 2, back up ball cap, medication (keeps the voices out of my headphones)uh, that’s about it. But next year I plan on carrying a heavy duty haversack type bag with a shoulder sling (man purse?) for sharp can slaw and other busted up crap I’ll haul out and throw away.

    I hope people don;t think you are continually playing with yourself when you dig in your BVDs for your pinpointer.

    I also use this the Relic Elite pouch. It is bigger than my Coin Elite bag I posted pic's of above. It is quite a bit bigger. It really depends on where I am hunting.

    I take a 5 gallon bucket for the trash if I am in the field or woods. Most other places I hunt have trash cans around or my vehicle is close enough to unload as often as necessary.

    I like the Park Ranger bag I bought from Freeloader on TNET. I carry everything I need in it.Garrett pinpointer Lesch digging tool, couple of empty pill bottles all fit in the pouch. I wear it on a tool belt with a Lesch shovel hanger.

    If I'm using my 17' I transfer it all to the Pro Swing belt.

    Minelab vest for phone, small loop, cleaning cloth and special finds. The vest has many different size zippered pockets so when I’m in the water nothing falls out and everything keeps dry. Pouch for trash, seperate pinpoint holder, and seperate sheath for knife or digger.

    I use all three (belts/pouches/vests), but does depend on where I'm hunting. Open farm fields, just a Garrett pouch(s). In play areas a belt with my digger on it and a few other things, plus a Garrett pouch. When I'm working an area for a client, I include the vest that can carry all of my documentation tools (pens, GPS, tape measure...etc.).
