Been looking for several years for a replacement for my old "Ausable" short wading vest(the 2 upper chest pockets are big enough to hold a 4"x9" Plano box each.) Haven't found anything that fits the bill yet, even tried to get relatives who sew to make me one no luck on that either .

Good luck in your search....

I've been using an orvis sling pack for a few years now and I like it. More comfortable than a vest in my opinion, although the strap does occasionally rub my neck a bit.

Plenty of pockets. Breathable material. Less then 100$ would be nice.

I wear a Fishpond vest that fits all of your requirements except the last one. I like it a lot.

Mine is the Gore Range Tech Pack. They are designed really well. I replaced an old vest with this one because the old one didn't have the right pockets and I was constantly dropping things when I bent over. After I lost a few expensive items, I bought an expensive vest. I haven't lost much with this vest and it has been much more comfortable than anything else I tried.

I have the gore tech and the wasatch from fishpond and they are great, same vest but one has a backpack and the other doesnt. Now i use the Umpqua Swift Water Tech vest, I love it. The best thing about it the waist belt that it has.
