I picked up a "Fishing Gilet" today from Lidl, and initial thoughts are that they should be very good for "roving" fishing on small streams or metal detecting due to all the pockets (seven in all).

Very light weight, and water-repelant.

Only £9.99 ..... BUT .... it was a "Middle of Lidl" speciall offer from a couple of weeks ago so I suspect a lot of stores will now be sold out.

Thanks for the pointer, Evan :thumbsup:

I've several times thought of a gilet but the problem with lots of pockets is that you tend to fill them. :D

Now that does look an interesting item, Evan, that i had not thought of before.
Normally roll the sleeves of my jacket / fleece up at the slightest hint of Sun.
Now the quandary, with all those pockets, where do i put all the initially non interesting items i dig ?
Help me out Ron.

" Better pick a pocket or two
You've got to pick a pocket or two, boys!
You've got to pick a pocket or two. "

Well it just so happens, most items go in left lower pocket, large items in bag, specials in bag pocket.
Could be something for the futur.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

I have used a fishing jacket for years for detecting and still manage to lose items in the many pockets and corners only to be discovered when my good lady sorts through it before washing it.

I had only used this gillet a couple of times before, and although liking it they were not "true" tests.

However on the Anton Rally it got a good try out to a much greater extent. Two long days detecting and good usage made of the pockets. I was quite impressed, so light you hardly noticed you were wearing it and the large number of pockets meant it was easy to keep things seperate, eg car keys and spare batteries / finds box / buttons / probably rubbish but check when bored one night, all having seperate pockets.

Another gentleman was also wearing one, which like myself he had largely bought for fishing, and he also said how good they were.

They would also provide protection if caught in a shower.

Another detectorist I know uses one too and swears by it. They do look very comfortable. You’ll have to tell us uf you spot anymore in Lidl :thumbsup:
