    I have season tickets to Michigan football. M stadium is one of the most restricted places as far as bags are concerned. Usual policy is no bag bigger than 8x10, but whenever something terror-related goes down they will switch to NO BAGS. It sucks because I live in Chicago and I can bring a straight up backpack to Wrigley and Comiskey. Trying to think of ways to carry my stuff without putting lenses in my coat pocket or carrying them like the hip flask I had in college.

    I have seen many photojournalists with those tan mesh-type vests that hold gear. Who makes those vests? Do you have any experience with them? Are there any good cargo pants that are good for carrying gear? Thanks for your help.

    I don't think I could be caught dead wearing any of those goofy ass vests. It's just too old-mani'ish and dorky.

    Cargo shorts can help hold stuff, but usually the stuff I carry beyond some CF cards are too large to put in pockets.

    I get a vest like this when shooting a National race. I can fit multiple lenses, a flash in the pockets, and cards if I wanted to.

    Unfortunately, M Stadium does not allow those: "The bag prohibition includes, but is not limited to, purses, lunch sacks, binocular and camera cases, fanny packs and diaper bags".
