Product Highlights
  • 100% Cotton with Nylon Mesh Vents

The Tamrac 153 World Correspondent's Vest, Medium (Khaki) is constructed of 100% cotton that is washable with less than 5% shrinkage and has nylon mesh vents for ventilation. It has lots of convenient pockets and is appropriate for almost any photographic assignment. There are ten pockets on the front of the vest that allow for any photographic situation. During hot weather, two zipper vented mesh pockets open to provide cooling ventilation. Four touch fastener closing patch pockets provide fast access and are large enough for nearly any accessory. Two zippered side pockets give the photographer secure space for film and accessories. Two hand warmer pockets can also be used to hold keys, coins, etc. Three more pockets can be found on the inside of the vest. Two large pockets close with a touch fastener, while one closes with a zipper to secure valuables. A large, roomy touch fastener closing pocket can be found on back and discreet vented back panels provide flow through ventilation without looking like a mesh vest. Side tabs are provided so the vest can be adjusted for a custom fit.

The front zips open and closed with a two-way zipper and snap tab, allowing the vest to be adjusted for perfect ventilation and comfort. Four "D" rings provide safe accessory and press pass attachment points. Snap-down epaulets keep camera and bag straps from slipping off the shoulder.

        • Being Afield

        Comments about Tamrac 153 World Correspondent's Vest, Medium (Khaki):

        Being in the field for wildlife and landscapes makes me appreciate having the extra pocket storage for the many, "O NO! I should have taken this or that along with me moments".
        I originally bought a cheaper vest for half the money from B&H. Upon arrival the main zipper did not work and the overall quality led me to request a refund rather than a replacment. I have bought two Tamrac backpacks in the past and because of their great quality I decided to spend the extra money. All I can say is, "Buy the 153WCV and you will not be disappointed period".

          Comments about Tamrac 153 World Correspondent's Vest, Medium (Khaki):

          I have been wanting one of these for years, but I didn't want to guess at the size without trying one on. I was in NY for a few days and went to B&H and tried some on and bought this and they shipped it to my house. It fits well. It zips up the front has lots of pockets and some rings to hang things from. I think it has enough pockets that I should be able to carry all needed lenses, filters, memory cards, extra battery, etc. when out taking photos for a day. I can even get my billfold in a pocket. It even has a big pocket in the back and some inside pockets.

          The vest has little belts on the sides so it could be tightened. There is a slit on each side too which can help with fit. They are unisex. I wear a Medium in a T-shirt and a Medium vest fits fine.

              We already have a vest by Big Pockets. The advantage of that vest is that it is lighter and made of synthetics so suited for warm weather and cheaper. But, we definitely look neerdy in those outfits. This is a much nicer looking vest and very well made. We look forward to some great use of these vests.

                Delivery said 7-10 days. I got it in 5! That's the kind of service I've come to expect from them. Excellence comes to mind. The vest is top quality. Stitching, seams, zippers, epalets and velcro all are excellent. Plenty of pockets for most of my photo gear. The lower inside pockets will hold my 70-300mm Nikor lens comfortably. Lower outside pockets will hold my D7000. I normally wear a medium, I got a medium and the fit is perfect, loaded and side straps adjusted. It is well ventilated, still a bit warm in my hot and humid climate, Hawaii. Overall very pleased with my purchase. Definitely will recommend to family and friends.

                    The biggest item I wanted this to hold was a Sigma 70-200 lens while using a smaller lens on one of two cameras and it does this well, the vest is comfortable but for the sharp corners on the velcro but a small amount of time with sharp scissors takes the corners of the offending corners, I plan on ordering the black version for the cooler weather it soaks in the suns rays more effectivly, all in all I am pleased with the vest

                    Plenty of compartments and pockets. Functional design. Light weight. However sizes do run large, had to return my medium for a small. I almost always am a tight medium, this one was closer to a large in actual size
