Scott, if you have the landscape lighting resource manual you can look in the tools section and se some cool lighting vest set ups. Other than that I would get with the lighting geek. He has some sweeeeet set ups as well!

You've got me thinking, a tool vest might be the way to go. I am getting tired of getting home after a night adjustment and emptying my pockets on the dresser with lens, connectors, garbage and what ever else I shove in my pockets. My wife gets tired of it too.

This looks more like Tommy's. And they make right and left handed versions.

The pistol is a necessary tool to be used in some locations while lurking around in the landscape making night adjustments.

The pistol is what seals the deal should your design fail!! LOL

Again guys, Nate is and alway has been the ultimate gadget geek. He has been wearing lighting vests for years and in his book lays out what all he included in his vest. Check your copy of The Landscape Lighting Resource Manual to see what i am talking about. He had it all the way down to the mini mag light with a mouth piece on it so you could hold it in your mouth. LOL

LED headlamps or even LED ball cap brim lights are the way to go... and they make great Christmas Gifts for the lighting nerds in your family.

5.11 Tactical vest and thigh mount are what I use. They are supplied to me by 5.11 with logos for the TV shows since they are one of my sponsors. The vest is the base and then you purchase each pouch/pocket depending on how you want to set it up.
