    Race vest pole storage

    I'm currently training for a sole Paddy Buckley. I'm intending to use poles. I've got an Ultimate Direction Signature Series Adventure Race Vest (17 litres)which is great but stowing the poles away when not in use is a real pain as they fit to the side of the vest and also get in the way of the lower food pockets when stowed away.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for a similar size race vest (17 litres or more) which has an easier pole attachment system, either on the front of the sack or side which allows for the poles to be put away or retrieved quickly and easily and doesn't make some of the race vest pockets difficult to access?

    Might be too small for you but I used an Alpkit Artlu and found it carried poles quite well. I bought this and a set of poles after 30+ years of fell running due to arthritic knees. Very shortly afterwards the FRA banned them! My wife now uses them for walking and I just use them if carrying a heavy load.
