I use a multi pocket/compartment fanny pack with shoulder straps for comfort. I carry tools and an extra plug in case of an emergency and a zip lock bag with some dry patches. That's about it other than all the normal things like you've listed.

I have a small, camouflaged back pack with pockets which carries everything I need for "possibles" as well as food, beverage and rope. But then, I am hunting out of either a tree stand or ground blind and the back pack is removed.

I've kinda got away from a specific pouch or bag. This is what I carry:
1) 4 or 5 speed loaders. Each speed loader is (2) vials duct taped together, back-to back. 1 has the powder and the other has bullet/sabot and primer. These simply go in a deep pocket. In my jacket will be a small vial of 209 primers as spares incase I drop the one from a speed loader
2) A custom T-handle that fits over the ramrod. ET made it several years ago for me. Best tool I've used
3) A short starter that gets the bullet/sabot about 4" down. Makes the final push much easier
And that's it. I haven't patched a barrel in years between shots. All these things fit in my pockets.
I am with wilms, I use a speed loader with a divider in the middle. Powder on one side and the rest on the other. The clear plastic ones work best. I use a take down rod, rubber banded to my shooting sticks. 4 or 5 speed loaders are enough for a hunt. If I shoot all of those I have had a heck of a day. A good hunting knife, a five foot piece of rope, and my folding chair completes the outfit.
