Being a photographer survivalist and having some health issues I tend to carry a LOT of stuff as 'EDC' from batteries to filters to firestarting gear and transplant meds. Add in my cigars, CCW business cards and other items and it becomes more than one can possibly carry on a belt and in the pockets comfortable. I tried a number of military and tactical vests over the years with some success as well as limitations. I try not to be noticed as a general rule. The more people notice you and remember you the more chances you are going to become a target by criminals or an object of interest by the law. A few years ago I got a good deal on an Australian Kakadu vest and have never looked back. Plenty of pockets from standard cargo and stretchable cargo pockets to mid-sized and small pockets plus an inner zippered one I keep my meds and one of the wifes inhalers in at all times. Looks good tho it is hot in hot, humid weather [[you get used to it.]], it does not scream 'military wanna-bee to everyone who sees you so does not attract attention like a Molle vest or Tac vest would.
