    As I am now joining gundog training, I have a lot of things to carry with me. I was wondering what I best could buy. Is it a dummy vest, a dummy bag, a bag pack....what are you using, what can I buy best and where?

    I agree that a vest is by far the easiest. I have a Jack Pyke one which does the job.
    @bbrown has a belt arrangement which is very similar to the vest but without the bit that covers your back. I don't know who makes her one, but it looks excellent, especially for hot weather.

    I usually take a dummy vest AND a bag, so I can carry six dummies, water, my coffee flask, a water bowl, treats, a reward ball, etc etc etc...

    I have a bag because I carry a long line as well as all sorts of other bits and bobs.

    I have this one in brown waxed cotton:

    It has a strap round the waist, which stops it swinging into the dog’s face if you bend over it, and also I clip my treat bag to the strap.

    I use a dummy bag, but all my friends use training vests, usually by Firedog.

    I use a leather belt with magazine dump pouches. Like this:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/One...rop-Pouch-Bag-Recovery-Pouch/32542692580.html

    Although you can find them for a bit cheaper than that.

    It's very useful when it's snowing, because the pouch mouth has an integrated "iris" snow-lock.

    I much prefer having something on my belt than a vest, where it can flap/swing around.

    They can also be used in other situations too

    I chose those because functionality is more important to me than "looking the part of country gentleman". I don't own tweed either :D
