Browning makes a "waist belt" with pockets on both sides / one in the back. I prefer vests or belts with pockets that have 2 pockets within the one...kind of dividing the bigger pocket in half. I only use a waist belt when it gets over 80 degrees. This is the one I use...( 5th row down - 2nd from right )...

I like the Browning clays vest.../ it gets a little too warm in temps over high 70's...but its got room for this one ....on Browning site.
Extra choke tubes - I carry in a plastic fishing lure box ...they hold 6 chokes / then 2 in the gun ( a pair of Skeet, pair of IC, pair of Mod, 1 Imp Mod, 1 Full ) is typically what I carry.
Rugged Gear push a good product / for sporting clays especially ( carry extra shells, rain gear, water, etc....but not for Trap really... unless you're shooting at a facility where you have to park a long ways from the fields ....or they have a lot of fields ...where you have to walk a half mile or something and carry all your gear ...extra shells, etc..

Glasses ...with prescriptions...I go with Decot a variety of colors..light gold, vermillion, target organge....depends on what your background is and what type of targets they throw ( the lighter orange, bio targets ) are not the same as the old traditional White Flyers...
earplugs ....custom fit to your ears / molded can buy a kit from Brownells....but most tournaments will have someone at a booth there making custom fit ear plugs ( they mold them to your ears - you sit for 10 min / they cure for 4 hours ) and then you can use them.

Raidans custom molded ear plugs is the one Brownells carries.

Custom plugs are by far the most comfortable - and the quietest / I don't like ear muffs on my shotguns either ( especially on guns with parallel adjustable combs ) because they bump the comb.

I just put a shell tray, a shot shell box, a gun scabbard, and a small backpack for misc. on my "walker". (I've put larger & wider wheels on it.).

Molded ear plugs are the way to go.

As far as vests go, any will do. I sized my large enough to be able to ware a sweat shirt under it.

For glasses, I just ware "Cocoons" over my regular glasses...
1. The pattern board is your friend, use the Dam thing!!!
2. The maximum range of a firearm and/or cartridge, is usually measured in miles, and means nothing.
2a. The effective range of a firearm and/or cartridge, is usually (the ability of the shooter) measured in yards, and means everything.
