What do you use for dog training vests?
I was gifted a dog training vest, one where you store treats in the pockets. Its easier to do that than to mess around with a treat pouch.
I do enjoy it, but it doesnt adjust enough for my hip size.
I am looking at getting a black one, that can actually fit someone with wide hips.
I was debating hunting/fishing vests but I do not think they have the protective coating in the pockets for food/treats.
Any suggestions, for affordable training vests?
Yes, I don’t want treat residue leaking into my clothes.
Dog training vests have pockets that are lined and prevent this.
I have a fanny pack, I don’t like wearing it much. It’s bulky and pulls my pants.

I've never trained using treats.
I see my neighbors with regular outdoor vests with treats in their pockets, nothing specially made.

To me, a VEST is something your put your arms thru and has nothing to do with your hips (per se) - as it is open in the front with say patch pockets on its front. I have no use for vests, unless tracking & needing to pick up 4 or more tracking articles or when hunting & shooting birds & would like to "pocket them" them rather than HOLD them.
I now use an adjustable nylon fanny pack for treats that sits either IN FRONT (above my fly) or on my hip. It has two pockets; one in front of the other; one zips one sits open. Years ago, I used a plain unisex canvas "painter's apron" (my dog training club sold them) and they have two slit pockets and you tie them on.
Amazon has a tool belt with 13 pockets:
And even a two pocket "pinafore" type tying apron:
I use a ziploc baggie for moist treats and since I train with very small pieces - I do not need anything HUGE. Any extra treats are kept in my obedience training bag (with multiple leashes, dumb-bells, etc.) and the treats put back in the fridge - if required.

There is a Youtube video of someone using a Kaepernick jersey to train a dog.

Do you HAVE to specifically have a 'dog' training vest? Any gilet with pockets should do, or you could always wear a bum-bag?
