i'm looking to upgrade my caching ensomble. has anyone found a really great vest or daypack (not fanny pack) to use for caching? i tend to carry about 10 pounds of stuff with me, and always lose my green pens, and forget which pocket i put stuff in, but i thought if i could find an even better vest/pack, maybe i could be ORGANIZED!

Look into something for birding (Birder's Buddy) or fishermen. I know the first because I know the lady from Flagstaff who makes them in her home.

They all have lots of pockets, and fairly big to accomodate field guides.

However, ten pounds sounds like perhaps you should go on a diet!

We use daypacks with built in water bladders like a Camelbak. You can pretty well choose your size, and having the water handy at all times is a boon. Just about everyone has a hydration pack these days, but Camelbak has some really nice features, especially the bite valve. They were the first, so some of the good stuff is probably patented. When we're caching in town the pack pretty much lays in the back seat, but out in the woods we don't go without them.

I bought the Marmot Eiger 36 this past spring. Did some backpacking with it in both New England and the Rockies over the past year. It's a great daypack.
