    There are many pockets, and they are secure. It's washable. Cool in the heat (in Khaki anyway). My spouse and I use this vest for carrying paraphernalia for dog training and for photography. If you want more pockets than a fishing vest, and want to look good at a great price, this is your vest.

    Reason for the 3 on this one, as I took it out of the package, I noticed one of the snaps on the back pocket was already torn through the cloth. [...] I'm hoping this was just a fluke.

      Comments about Humvee by CampCo Safari Photo Vest, Large (Khaki):

      For day hikes or on the trips I used Lowepro backpack. This is excellent product, I love it.It is very useful. But for me there is one problem (as usual for all backpacks). After 30-40 min of walking my back becomes wet. To eliminate this problems I bought Tamrac bag (Pouch).It was a bright decision. Now my back is dry, I feel very comfortable and the quality of my shots become much better (I think so). Everything is good except one thing: not enough space for all my day trip gear. The next right step was to buy Hamvee Safari Photo vest by Camp Co. This vest is exactly what I was looking for. There are many pockets, good ventilation, good quality of fabric and manufacture, reasonable price, good design of the pockets ( sizes, locations, closings, style, quantity). Now on my day trip I take:- in Tamrac bag. Canon SLR camera with lens, supplementary battery for camera, CF memories, cleaning kit, lens filter, plastic bag (just in case of rain).- In Hamvee vest. Canon camera flash, one set of spare battery for flash, white balance card set 5.1"x3.9",one more lens (usually Tokina fisheye 10-17mm in pouch), camera strap, folded map, wallet, eye glasses.- Monopod or TripodNow everything, what I need, is with me. I have easy access to all my gear and everything is well organized. I am 6' high, 195 lbs., Vest size L.

            I pass my winters in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula where iy's very hot. I needed portability and comfort for my gear. This vest breathes and helps me tote my gear. It's exactly what I was looking for, for this climate.

            Comments about Humvee by CampCo Safari Photo Vest, Large (Khaki):

            Just bought this and haven't had the opportunity to field test it. But it looks remarkably well thought out. Many great pockets for anything you could possibly want to carry, even an extra body with short zoom and strap attached. Sturdy, with solid double zipper and adjustment snaps. The large runs large, but I like that....more room to stuff the pockets and still be comfortable and, surprisingly it doesn't look all that bulky. I've seen far inferior vests for 5-6 times the price. I'm thinking of getting another one in size medium for those occasions when I don't need to carry as many big items and a tighter fit is called for.

            Comments about Humvee by CampCo Safari Photo Vest, Large (Khaki):

            Fabric quality is great, and Multi-pocket is super useful since it is going to be used in engineering field trips. However, it runs a little large (it is a bit too width). Also, amazingly fast shipping!

                I use this to carry two extra lens, batteries, different lens filters and a few small tools and still have empty pockets. 21 pockets are more than enough. Even carrying the items listed the vest is comfortable. Used the vest several time this month and the it does not hold the heat in.

                      I tried a number of different backpacks to carry my gear, but even though they were each good in their own way, none was perfect. Having to "offload" a backpack, fish through it to find what I wanted, etc. became a nuisance. This vest is exactly what I had been looking for. All the pockets (and there are enough of them!) are perfectly sized and located to accommodate every need I have. I love it.

                      Nice vest with many pockets. Seems to be accurately sized. Fits well either with or without a light jacket. None of the pockets is really huge as with some vests. That could be a downside if you have really large lenses.

                        Surprisingly good vest! Lots of room; lots of pockets. There are pockets for all sorts of little items I otherwise need & which I frequently fumble/drop (such as white balance card, etc.). Great ventilation. I like that it is 100% cotton as I can (and will) launder it from time to time. Construction seems quite good.

                            I searched and questioned photographers. This one seemed to always come out on top. Lots and lots of pockets for carrying an extra lens and ancillary items. Don't forget things like bug spray, sun screen, compass, energy bars, water, poncho, note pad, pens or pencils, mini flashlights (white and red lens), "leatherman" type gizmo. Pockets for all these things.

                              Checked this vest out and I know it will be useful on trips to photograph wildlife and landscapes. I have worked in the field of wildlife research as a scientist for more than 40 yrs. This vest will be very helpful in keeping things organized in the field. It seems tough and should last under extreme working conditions.

                                    This vest fits all of my field gear for Landscape Photography including long lenses. To me its better than carrying a gadget bag, the weight is more evenly distributed and less wear and tear on your shoulders and back. I just got it and used it one time. So far so good, it seems durable, no mishaps.

                                        I have only used this vest a few times. I seems to be just what I needed. Very comfortable and cool wearing. In the Florida heat it will be nice.
