^^^^. What he said. The only other pouch I use is the old leather Sunday pouches. Those last a lifetime.

I prefer a mesh summer skeet vest with the large front pockets for shells which works great for finds and they have mesh bottoms so the dirt falls out and all the load is on ur shoulders rather that waist.

Do these close in the top? Could you post pictures? I am looking at other pouch ideas, but I need something that closes on top since I hike to some of my places and don't want things falling out.

Mine is out in my vehicle. They have two pockets that are open and one that zips closed. I use the zippered pocket for finds Iím saving, the large pocket for trash and I put a magnet in the second open pocket. There is also a loop for a pinpointer and a small pocket where I usually put my pinpointer. I keep my lesche in its own sheath on my left side. Iím going off of memory on the pockets...

If you don't mind the expense, "Maxpedition" makes some nice stuff and they always have some kind of sale

I love their bags, actually I ordered the thermite versipack to give a shot for detecting, I currently have one for a bail out bag at work. I have maxpediton for almost every other bag in my different hobbies.

I use one of these, early post-war. I find it works perfectly for me.

A one dollar painters apron with 2 pockets. I don't like anything on my sides that gets in the way of swinging the detector or my arm movement. They work just fine and keep me from lugging too much stuff around I don't need.

I've seen some guys pouches that would support a tailgate party or maybe do a tune up on a Volkswagen in a pinch. Light is better.

Custom Park Ranger with extra pockets and a custom pack mule. They are tough. I have 3 years use on them and they look like new despite heavy use. They will last a lifetime unless you run over them with a mower or something like that. First photo the Ranger; second the Pack mule with two outside zipper pockets and an open pocket for a drop cloth.

Those look like great pouches but the suppler must be fazing them out. Can only find one sight offering the ranger or pack mule and there down to one color which is camo that cost $5 more.

The Park Ranger and Pack Mule are custom made. I will check and see if he's still making them.

For dirt fishing I use the no longer made SunRay Leather finds pouch. It is tough and will be around long after I am pushing up daisies. At the beach I use a mesh bag for coins and my pocket for more important stuff. Some days I carry a second larger mesh bag for the beer cans that I did off a beach where alcohol is not allowed.
