Sandwich boards worked quite well at the Sydney September 1996 demos.

The trick with these is to keep them from going all over the place :-)

Use straps at the top (cloth, preferably) over your shoulders. At the
bottom, you will need string to keep the boards from flapping alll ove the
place - about a foot long hanging off each corner; tie together in a bow.

Have a spare picketer or two on hand.
