The Tamrac 153 World Correspondent's Vest, XX-Large (Black) 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.

      Comments about 153 World Correspondent's Vest, XX-Large (Black):

      This vest is well made and should stand up to any kind of environment. I had originally ordered size XL, which is my normal t-shirt size, but had to return it for a XXL, which fits perfectly.I have only had the chance to use it twice, but one thing I found is that the largest front pockets will only accomodate my smaller lenses. I can squeeze my EF-150 in but I worry about the zipper damaging it. The vest has a roll up hood wih a zip closed compartment that is a minor annoyance because it stands up and contacts the back of my head. I am hoping that after a wash or two it will lie back like a normal jacket collar. It has a nice large size pocket on the back but it sits high on the back and can only be accessed by taking the vest off.For the most part, it is a good comfortable well constructed vest that is reasonably functional, but I would design it differently.

      Comments about 153 World Correspondent's Vest, XX-Large (Khaki):

      I normally use a Think Tank Modular Belt but sometimes back pain gets aggravated because of the extra weight on my hips so I wanted something I can wear that I can put the smaller lenses in when I go on an assignment for the local paper. So far it had meet my expectations.It has enough pockets for lenses from a 70-200mm to a 50mm, a 580 EXII flash, batteries, CF Cards, pens, small notebook/writing pad or other small gadgets you might need to include.The sizes run true. I take an XXL and there is just enough room underneath to put a hoodie and light jacket on.

          I bought an X-Large in Kaki which is fine for wearing over a t-shirt, but I wanted one to wear over a sweatshirt for winter, so I ordered the Black in XXL. The size difference is not much larger, so if you are not sure of an XL, or you feel it may be tight, go ahead and order the XXL, a little loose is better.

              I own over 10 vests and this is by far the best of them. Very comfortable material. All the pockets you might need and two of them are big enough to hold a NEX-5 with the 18-55 lens.

                  The pockets are super great for my photoshoot's I have used the vest on two photoshoots so far and I love it. I ordered one size bigger than I wear and it is great because once you fill the pockets it fits just right. I can not say if you will have the same result as I did as far as fit but it worked for me.

                      I have had several vests over the years and this one tops them all. This vest is really a wash and wear and it doesn't wrinkle. The material is thin and light, lint and hair doesn't cling and it always looks neat. The pockets are in exactly the right locations so I can find things without looking down. The flaps are easy to close, yet they keep everything secure. I even found that the zippered vents in the front shoulders were excellent for storing my sunglasses.

                      I am really impressed with the quality and usability of this vest.
