I have one I bought about 2 years ago. It is nice and has a lot of pockets. It lets people know right away that I am a magician.

Only you know whether that fits your style.

I highly recommend that you DO NOT buy one from Daytona, but buy one from Bob James Magic Shop in Illinois instead. You'll have problems with Daytona, and NO PROBLEMS with Bob James.

The first one I ordered started separating at the shoulder seam, I called and he promptly sent me another one, and that's no easy task, since I'm a BIG man... about a 2X kinda guy, and they custom made 'em for me. It's still in GREAT shape, and looks as good as new. Trust me, this thing's had HUNDREDS of hours use in walkaround restaurant work. If I remember correctly, it's about 42 pockets of all sizes, from wand size to coin size. It'll cost you about $100, but it'll last a LONG time, too.

42 pockets!!!! Wow, that's a lot, how do they do it?

Second thought, do you have a URL for the one from Bob James?

Hey, when in doubt, try the obvious: http://www.bobjamesmagic.com

Search for vest. Sorry I was mistaken in my earlier post, it's only 40 pockets. There is a picture there on the site.

I have two vests from Daytona and I have never had any problems with them. I love them.

You'll have to check with Bob James, I know first hand that he has some great stuff there!

Those Daytona Magic vests are hideous.
