Ordered and received this vest just before our South Africa trip to Kruger National Park. I wanted something to keep my microfiber cloth, memory cards, my GoPro Hero HD, PowerShot S100, lens caps, wallet and other items handy.

Price to value is great. 100% cotton so washed it after it's use. It exceeded expectations with quality and ease of use.

Met my needs perfectly.

I currently carry & shoot a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 "super zoom" camera. So I don't need a great deal of carry capacity. This vest has all I need for space & security for a wide angle lens, filters, remote control, secure pockets for small items, and a pocket big enough for a camera rain cover. And the straps on the shoulders to keep a tri-pod with me. I really like it!

      Comments about Safari Photo Vest (X-Large, Khaki):

      This photo vest is just marvelous. I wanted the specifically for the marathon race in Philadelphia. I also wanted to be able to move about unencumbered by carry a back pack. This vest allows equal weight distribution, and has more than enough pockets , not only lens, camera body's, batteries and extra cards, I even had room for energy bars and bottled water. Yes I made the right choice, and quite few people and made the assumption that I was a professional photographer (maybe I am).

        Comments about Safari Photo Vest (X-Large, Khaki):

        Several comments have been given some good, some bad. It depends on your perspective. Don't compare McDonald's to Outback Steakhouse. For the money this is a great vest. It fits and feels good. It has more pockets than a person can use. It is true, the lens pockets are not large enough for big lenses - too small in diameter. My purpose for buying it is when I spend all day in a park I do not wan to carry a camera bag. This vest does exactly what I need it to do. Durability will be decided after more use. For the price it can't be beat.

          Comments about Safari Photo Vest (X-Large, Black):

          This vest is roomy enough to accommodate a variety of bodies and lenses, but the splitting of the lower right pocket into two separate spaces is restricting and doesn't utilize the pocket to its full potential. Overall the construction is sturdy and should serve any user very well.

              Useful. Good variety of pocket sizes for lenses and equipment. Sturdy fabric and construction.Would have gotten more stars but the eplets are too small from a wide camera strap. That's the one big drawback. If I had to do it over, I'd have sent this one back.

                This vest is a great addition to my photo kit, giving me more flexibility out in the field. I'm able to easily adjust how I use my equipment to make rapid changes to lenses and camera setups. I'm also able to move more quickly and not worry about having to haul around additional bags. This lets me capture weather effects, animal movements (especially birds), and other sudden opportunities to catch some great images!

                  Very light. Tons of pockets of all sizes. Travelled with it and used it on a shooting trip. Held all my lenses, accessories, batteries and chargers. A little bit bigger than I thought but that's cool, as I can wear it on top of my jacket in winter.

                      The jacket will be worn in Maryland. I thought it would be heavier fabric. It is fine for transitional seasons of the year, but it is too light weight for much warmth. Good summer fabric.

                              I will use this vest to carry photo gear. tickets, passports, TSA permitted items on flights to destinations where we do underwater photography. It is quite a challenge to get all your photo and scuba gear as well as cloths to places 12 time zones away.This vest suits my needs very well:1. Lightweight, washable, & ventilated.2. Lots of large and small pockets of various sizes and closures. The inside pockets are good for passports and travel documents.3. The vest and its contents can easily be stowed away on the airplane.I wish the inside pockets had zippers.

                              I ordered this larger than i thought i needed, so it would be baggy in the summer and fit over a down coat in the winter.It is well made and finished and pockets are every where. I can carry my entire pack of gear within easy reach in pockets instead of on my back -- and still have plenty of space left over for id, water, keys, etc. You wont be disappointed in this for a photographers vest.

                                I'm a freelance photographer and I use this vest specifically outdoors, as I shoot a lot of nature and landscpes. There are a lot of pocket of all sizes , zippers, snaps, inside and out. There is room for everything ! Love it

                                Got this for my husband, an amateur photographer who always seems to need something he doesn't have at hand. Loved the idea of many pockets, so it serves it's purpose. However, I was a little disappointed in the quality. Fabric is not sturdy, although it is light weight. Stitching is a bit sloppy. Time will tell if this holds up. I suppose it's adequate for the price, but I was hoping for a better quality.

                                The photo vest offered everything I needed for my lens/camera toting. Great construction, many different size pockets. Vests similar to this have been advertised for 3-5x the price.

                                  It has plenty of pockets and the inside rear pocket will hold one or two garbage bags in case you get cauht in a downpour.

                                  The front lower right pockets are large enough for APS-C CMOS lenses however they are likely too small if you are shooting a full frame rig.

                                  One additional item is that the epaulets are not roomy enough for a broad camera bag strap. Other than that, the vest is a good addition to most people's rigs.
