I tried a vest years ago at a scenario, it only lasted about 10 minutes before I went back and put my pod pack back on. It's all preference, but I always use a pod pack whether playing semi or open class pump. I just stick my map and radio in my pants pocket (I don't usually have my radio on at all times, and don't use any ear buds or mics). For maps, I always make small pocket sized maps at home before the game. If I want water, I bought a 70 ounce Camelbak-type hydration system that fits above my pod pack. My I.D. goes on a lanyard, and I tape the I.D. to the lanyard loop to ensure it does not fall off. What else do you need for a scenario? Less is better. I have never carried paint or smoke grenades, but I have more than enough room in my pants pockets for a few. For pants, I use Valken V-Tac Zulu's which have plenty of pockets. I could see where a lot of paintball pants are limited on pocket space, so depending on what you wear, maybe reevaluate your pants.
