Needed a vest that not only allowed me to carry my essentials, but here in Texas it permits me to carry my pistol on the road! It is a very discreet profile and does not advertise I'm carrying a firearm while riding around town or across the great state of Texas.

The flight vest fits all the gear from my backpack and rides well. My only concern is if I have a get off and pound the loaded pockets into my ribs.
my husband is obsessed with this vest. Great use of pockets and so much better than a regular pack.
I purchased this to relieve direct weight on the back, was using Camel Bak cloud walker. The vest is very adjustable, plenty of pockets, typically carry just about every tool to perform on trail maintenance. Short trips has almost too much room. Weight distribution is as expected, limited ventilation so over 85 degrees tends to get a little bit warmer than a backpack, but very comfortable. Would have liked to see better tool handling / organization.
Racing in baja? Riding from Tecate to Cabo? Hitting an overnight ride from Vegas to Reno? Or just want to carry your stuff when you cruising around Ocotillo Wells? Found the right option. Carries everything you want and is super comfy.
Con: Wish the camelbak was a 3.0 gallon instead of 2.0
OGIO nailed it. I wear it all the time. Get one!
Way more useful and comfortable than a backpack
I wear this on a street bike. It can hold all of my junk and still looks pretty cool. Probably doesn't do anything in the safety department, but on those hot days its nice to have if you are just cruising around.
I finally had a chance to check out my OGIO Flight Vest and I am very impressed!
The first thing I noticed is how light it is. From the pictures I imagined it being heavy... NOT!
The cut of the vest is high in the front allowing sitting on the Grizzly without it shoving up. A super strong Hydro Bladder and drink tube that comes down the front right side with a bite valve that can be used with the helmet on. On the front (both sides) of the vest are two large zippered pockets (about 8"x6") large enough for goggles, RZR Mask or whatever. The left pocket has three additional long slender pockets on front.
Two smaller zippered pockets run up the left front of the vest and allow quick access to other items like your Contour. (about 5"x4' and 5"x3")
All zippers are super smooth.
On the back sides are two long zippered pockets that can hold whatever larger items or tools you might want to carry. (about 14"x5") There's also a large square pocket in the center of the back on top of the water bladder pocket. (about 10"x8")
Lashing loop galore on this vest and plenty of air flow through the mesh body.
Three buckles and straps to keep it closed if you like on the front but air still passes through the vest almost like it isn't there.
All in all it's a great accessory for our sport! God forbid you have to ever walk out, you can take all the survival gear you need easily and comfortably.
I'll be wearing mine on every ride!
Several pockets to hold all your tools and gear. It gets a little heavy when packed but carries the weight very well. Great for long rides when you need to carry extra stuff.
