I switched to the Conterra chest pouch last year for all the reasons Matt said after my Arri hip pouch gave out on me (after about only a year, but that’s another story)... There was certainly an adjustment period - like you said, the nice thing about a hip pouch is you can pull something out, use it, and put it back and then close the pouch. This was a very efficient way for me to work... However, with the Conterra, I found myself dumping the entire contents of the pouch out atleast twice a day for the first week of having it, just because I was in a rush and not thinking about full closing the pouch 🤦🏻‍♂️ There was a lot of swearing and facepalm-ing but now I’ve grown to really love mine. 


The one important chest-harness piece of information that a lot of people leave out is that assuming youre using a Motorola walkie operating in the UHF Band-1 @ 4-watts of RF output, you need the antenna to be >13” from your body to be within FCC guidelines for unrestricted RF exposure, or >6” in the low-power 1w mode. Within that distance range, and they have time limits posted for safe exposure guidelines. For this reason, I bring my own CP200 antenna and try to do my best to keep my walkie on a separate belt pouch away from my chest/head.

I used an arri hip pouch for a long time. To the point of destruction, repaired, torn again, repaired again. served me well but it was annoying having my belt digging in all day, especially if i needed a lot of stuff. I made a few mods to it, added more velcro for holding my filter labs. After switching to a chest rig it was my tool bag for a long time.
