          Comments about Porta Brace VV-L Videographer Vest, Medium:

          This vest is perfect for videographers, photographers, and even audio technicians who need to transport a lot of equipment on the go without a bag. Let me make this clear: there are a TON of pockets that exist on all parts of the vest, including the inside. The massive front pockets can easily store spare battery packs, camera lenses, and recording devices, while the smaller ones on top can hold memory cards, mobile phones, adapters, and etc. As evident by product pictures, there is also a giant pocket in the back which can hold long cables and even your lunch! The advantage of using this vest for occasions such as hikes is that you can avoid the back strain due to a heavy backpack. If you carry a lot of trinkets during your job and like to be spatially aware of where you store them, this vest is perfect for you.Aside from the technical uses, this vest is incredibly durable and stylish (even more so than from the product images). Porta Brace is known for its high quality bags and this vest is no exception because it feels sturdy like kevlar and will support moderately heavy equipment without stress. Furthermore, it looks very professional even for a job at a wedding because you can show off your business cards in the front pocket and it contrasts a white dress shirt well.Overall, this product is a huge step up from having to use bags or backpacks to carry equipment and can really help in turning a 2 man job to a 1 man job. With all your equipment within arm's reach, capturing those perfect videos or photographs will be much easier! The bottom line: I HIGHLY recommend this product!

          Comments about Porta Brace VV-L Videographer Vest, Medium:

          I am a videographer working in the consumer market research industry and use the vest as a tool caddy. The two large front pockets are versatile and I use them for microphone receivers and even gaff tape. There are a number of other pockets of varying size most are also very useful. As with most Porta Brace products the quality of construction is very good and durable. Being on the go and in and out of tight places I would like a zippered pocket as well as the Velcro for fear of loosing something though I have not as of yet.
