    I ordered small as the measurement requirements suggested.[...].The Campco Safari Photo Vest is just what I expected, perfect fit with plenty of pockets. And many of those lined to resist water. I can recommend this vest to anyone wanting value for their dollar. A great vest for any photographer.

    I have Domke Photog vest that is one size too large (works great in the winter over a down jacket). I wanted a smaller size vest for summer wear. The quality of this vest is half as good as the Domke, but the Domke is almost double the price. The Safari vest has lots of pockets but a few are too small for medium to large filters, so practically useless. The velco is stitched on but still appears a little weak. Just be careful and they should stay attached.

    If you want to save money then this vest should work reasonably well for light duty.

          The only comment I need to make is to ask myself why didn't I buy the Safari Photo Vest years ago? Great addition to my photo gear.

              Bought this for photo wandering in the Mojave Desert. Like the feel and fit of the vest. It feels light weight vs cumbersome. Size small fits my 5'5" female frame well.

                Comments about Safari Photo Vest (Small, Khaki):

                I bought the Safari photo vest a couple of weeks ago. Delivery was really fast (Purolator), good job B&H !
                The vest looked ok, it's certainly a very good deal and quality considering the price.
                The only problem was the size. I use medium (slim fit) in all the clothing I buy, but because the previous reviews about this product advising about the sizing issue, I bought Small.
                It ended up being still too big for me!
                I should have chosen the XS probably.
                I called B&H and they politely provided an RMA number for the return, which I didn't use, since I ended up giving the vest away as a present to a photographer friend with a bigger frame...

                    Should hold all my video odds and ends I use in the field and appears to be well-crafted. The only issue I foresee is this vest being too large on a very petite woman. I wear a medium in most clothes and this vest fits me well.

                    Women out there - have you noticed there's no such thing as a photo vest for us? Here's one that's proportioned for women (even though it is a man's vest). I'm a landscape photographer who shoots 4x5 film and this vest can hold three film holders in a series of stacked pockets. The cotton fabric is washable and may be treated with permethrin to repel ticks and mosquitos. The vest is also rather stylish.

                      I usually wear a medium, but based on the reviews here I reluctantly ordered a small. I could hardly get it on and there is no way that I could ever have zippered it. Not sure how to explain this, but had to return it.

                      It does have lots of pockets and seems well-made, but most of the pockets were smaller than I had imagined. None of them would hold a modest zoom lens. Will probably try to find some alternative.

                      I ordered this vest in a small after reading that it ran large in sizing. When I received the vest, it seemed sturdy and well made but it was too small. I exchanged it for a medium.

                        I received this vest and because most reviews said to order a size smaller, I ordered a Small instead of a Medium and had to return it for a Medium. B& H Photo was very good at handling the return with no hassle. The vest has pockets for almost anything you need. I do need a way to attach a tripod but so far have not found a way to do, so I intend to attach a strap of either webbing or Velcro somewhere on it to carry my tripod when needed. The vest seems well manufactured. I think it will serve me well for years.

                              Runs very large. Order a size smaller, but it was a great deal. Going on a safari on September and looking forward to using all the pockets for all our camera equipment. We can only have 33 lbs of luggage so what we can wear on us will help

                                I love this vest with all of its pockets. It is very well constructed and can be worn in warmer climates without feeling hot. It breathes well and the 21 pockets are a huge plus, especially when you are carrying car keys, cell phone and photo accessories. It also packs well. I bought one for my son too, for location shoots.

                                It is well made with plenty of rooms for all my photo essential hardware.
                                Very good price!
                                Yes, I would recommend it to my friends.

                                  It's lightweight, it's vented, has plenty of different sized pockets, the carabiner tucked in the top pocket for your keys is a good idea, it does what it does. The only thing I think could be better is the epaulets should be sized to take a 1 5/8th camera strap like some other photographers vests, the gap is too narrow to be effective for anything

                                      After reading the comments about how large this vest runs, I ordered a small. I wished I would have ordered an XS.............my only complaint.

                                      Comments about Safari Photo Vest (Small, Khaki):

                                      A very nice vest for a very affordable price. The wide range of pockets accomodate everything from large lenses to extra memory cards with plenty left over for such necessities as pens/pencils cigarettes and bug spray!

                                      The reason I downgraded it to 4 stars is that when received, the main zipper did not work. It jammed trying to close. Required some surgery with an x-acto knife to fix, but has worked fine since.

                                      Definitely order a smaller size. I take a medium in everything, and with the small vest I still reefed in the side snap adjusters. Will fit comfortably over either a light summer shirt, or spring/fall jacket. With the snaps undone, it will probably fit over a winter parka!

                                      The only other modification I have made was to add some velcro attached "blaze orange" safety stripes for those fall ventures into the woods. They fold up nicely into the rear pocket.

                                      The only other addition I would make is possibly a strap for carrying a light tripod/monopod. My current monopod hooks nicely onto my belt, so no need today.

                                          Used it on a trip to Sequoia and Yosemite Parks. Very handy way to carry all the little extras ie: batteries, flashes, sd cards, remotes. There are so many pockets you need to memorize where you put things. really a helpful product Does run big. I normally am a medium and I ordered the small and its still big..room for layers underneath.

                                            The pockets are arranged so that all the heavy gear (long lens, camera) are on one side of the vest and all the light gear are on the other side.
                                            The material tends to cut into my neck as a result and I am in the process of sending it back.

                                              I bought this vest to do away with carrying a camera bag everywhere. It has plenty of room for essential hardware such as an extra lens, filters, batteries etc. It's just the ticket for hiking through the woods to get to your favorite spot for landscape photos.
                                              As other reviewers have pointed out, the sizes are large. I'm 5'10" and 185 lbs. I bought a small and it fits just a bit big which is fine if I want to wear it over a light jacket.
                                              Well made product for the price...No regrets here!
