Great idea, well executed by Ogio!
I was thinking about getting a new backpack recently and in the course of searching around I stumbled on the Ogio Flight Vest. A little more research into it, and I was sold.
The Ogio Flight Vest is a cool piece of kit, and it doesn't get the appropriate respect that it deserves. Even in Ogio's dealer description for the product, they undersell it. They don't even enumerate the number of pockets it has! (It has 12, incidentally)
I discovered that it should be aggressively marketed as a replacement for a backpack, hydration pack, and 'on bike' bags; because it pretty much swallows up everything I used to carry in those bags, with room to spare, added comfort, less weight on the bike, and style in spades. I have now dumped my enduro tank bag, spare tube fender bag, and hydration backpack in favor of this one piece of gear.
Looking at the front, top to bottom, you've got the following features:
Right side (as worn):
-H20 tube keeper R shoulder
-Clip type open bottom sleeve pocket R chest
-Hidden vertical pocket R chest
-Large pocket R abdomen
-Small upper pocket L chest
-Medium middle pocket L chest
-Large pocket L abdomen
-3 vertical pouch pockets on top of the L abdomen pocket
-L large / deep pocket w/ 3 tool sleeves sewn in
-Middle dedicated hydration pocket and bladder
-Middle medium pocket with velcro and fastex closure
-R large / deep pocket (big enough to hold a spare 21" tube)
General: Front fastens with 3 adjustable fastex buckles. Sides adjust with 2 fastex sliders per side. Shoulders and sides are mesh for cooling. Areas on chest and back that are behind the pockets are lightly padded. Larger pockets have drain holes in the bottom. Hydration bladder is 'Hydrapack' and is of good quality, tube bite valve has an on/off switch. All zippers are built to open out from and zip shut in towards the body, which is handy. All pockets have a built in zipper stop to keep the front part of the pocket from being unzipped too far and letting the contents spill out.
Some guys are stowing their tools in the vest; I personally don't want to do that because of the weight, potential wear to the vest, and the risk of crash damage to myself. I'll continue to run the tool kit and the 12V pump in a small rear fender bag on the bike.
Bottom line - I am highly impressed with this vest and I think it a great idea, a space and weight saver, and pretty cool looking, too!

Great if you are travelling all day, but not overnight and need to take lots of bits n pieces ... as I always do. Fits better and less drag than taking a backpack and means I'm not running back to the saddle-bags to fetch stuff I've forgotten. Easily carries small tools, camera, iPad, note-pads, tape measure, pens, toll pass, knife, water bottle. I just leave it all in there and I'm ready to go!

More than what I need for a good price
I'm new to riding and only have less than a year riding daily. With that being said this "vest" is amazing; it has a pocket for everything and even a small d shaped ring that you can clip things on,Hydrapack works really well. It's light weight even with a full pack. I use it to carry items to work . The pockets in back are big enough for a change a clothes wich I use it for. I hate riding with a backpack its always sliding about even with chest straps. This vest stays in place and looks cool, I only gave it 4 stars because it lacks reflective parts; which I bought and just pinned on the back of it
