    I was just wondering about this...I primarily use Fly Fishing or Turkey Hunting Vests while Detecting. I have the belts and pouches but Vests to me have Everything I need in a much more comfortable and a place for everything set up and D Rings because I use lanyards on all my tools as to not forget them. I usually do put my digger on the belt, it's hooked to the lanyard on the belt though.

    I also use retractable fly fishing tool spools for a loupe or magnifier that pin to the vest. Anyone else do this?

    Using the Turkey Vest, the pocket that would hold a box call is perfect and secure for a pin pointer. Pockets galore for bottles and smalls and the back is great for trash.

    I hunt a lot of low light areas and even though I have a hat with lights in the bill of it... I use the Panther Button Lamp (they come with great adhesion) on my Detector Box and on the hat I Velcro one to the underside of my hat bill for use while digging. These are Small But Super Bright! Great Stocking Stuffers. Anyone else use these?

    I have a belt with two bags and a pinpoiter holster. The muck I hunt in would ruin a nice vest.

    Tool belt with it's own tool pouch and a nail pouch, sometimes i go with just the nail pouch though if i only carry a pinpointer and trowel. If i bring my shovel and handpick i need more room for hand tools. Depends on what you're doing that day. And where.

    Been using the same .99 nail apron I got at Lowe’s hardware 3 years ago. One pocket for trash and the other for keepers. I use the holster the pinpointer came with. Works great so far.HH

    The Garrett Camp pouch is my standard, but I got the bomb sheath, fly fishing vest, and a stupid supply of multi pocketed cargo shorts courtesy of my employer.

    I use an apron that has three pockets and I have my small digger in a case on one side and my pinpointer in its case on the other side of the apron string.

    I wear a hoody most of the time I detect. The belly pocket is like the Swiss Army knife of pockets, its all I need.

    Occasionally I will wear a finds pouch.....

    Agree, I've tried almost all of the custom pouches but went back to the dollar nail apron and the bomb sheath combination digger/pin pointer I've used for years. I don't like extra weight of a side pouch getting in the way of my swing or just being in the way in general. Nor do I wear camo anything, in 20 years of hunting I've yet to spook a relic, they just stay where they are pretty much.
