      This vest is made of material that is a bit heavier than most other vests I have looked at. Mine has been machine washed numerous times, hung out to dry. I have had mine for 2 years now and wouldn't hesitate buying another again if needed. The pockets on this vest are just endless. Several are zippered and the rest are velcro flap. Besides having lots of pockets, many are expandable to carry an asortment of lens with enough room to spare. I usually pack a few bottles of drinking water in the rear pockets, a flash gun with accessories in the front. Some extenders and an extra lens in the front pockets. There is a nice zippered pocket on the top inside perfect for memory cards. There are huge pockets on the front lower inside of the vest also. What makes this vest comfortable compared to others is that it doesn't have the straps going across the top of the shoulders. If you carry a tripod or monopod as much as I do which is a lot, then you would know what I mean. There are a couple of metal rings at the upper front on each side. I clip a small carabineer on one of the rings to hold a monopod strap if I am changing lens or extenders. I see many people substitute a fishing vest for one of these due to cost, this vest is a true photographers vest.

      This vest is well made and of good quality materials. However the pockets with Velcro closure were never designed to hold much. Put anything in them and the closure flap won't close with some effort and won't stay closed. Not sure if this was designed by a photographer but I would nor recommend this model you have very much to take a long. Also one of the brass snaps came apart after wearing it twice and had to be repaired.

        Comments about PhoTOGS Vest (XX-Large, Black):

        I pretty much use this vest every day at work. As a computer technician I have a ridiculous number of keys to access various locations at work. I keep a multi-tool handy that actually fits my hand so is large and heavy. I keep my Sure-fire flashlight with me and it doesn't wind up stabbing me in the crotch. My cell phone is always close so I can hear it ring (so no more butt dialing.) Last and most important, it is a vest so my arms can stay cool. Ever since I was a late teen ager who was interested in body building, I am much more comfortable without sleeves. Just really functional.

              Bought in N.Y last week of August 2014 & used immediately in very hot weather (more than 90F / 32C. The Domke vest keeps you hot in such conditions!
              The Velcro pocket closures are too small & didn't grip very well when putting heavy lenses in the lateral pockets.
              Anyway I'm satisfied.

                When I got the vest and took it out of the package it felt heavy. I tried it on and I was right, it's very heavy and more suited for wearing over a light jacket in the fall or winter then wearing during the hot summer. I also felt it was too long.

                      As someone that wears vests almost all year round, I have gone through many brands and I can say without a doubt, that the Domke PhoTOGS vest always lasts the longest. Construction and stitching is heavy duty and designed to handle more than I need. You won't be dissapointed with this fine peice of work!

                        As a professional photographer shooting postcards, I am always on the move. Sometimes I only have 2 or 3 days to shoot an area. That means planning for weather and having a back up plan when things go wrong. The Domke vest is like wearing my office. I can carry everything I need from maps to spare filters. It allows me to lighten my load so I can move quickly, which means I get the job done on time.

                            in fact i am going to by one for a friend who is retiring.

                                Comments about PhoTOGS Vest (XX-Large, Khaki):

                                I'm a very avid photographer, shooting landscapes, nature, and doing portrait sessions from time to time.

                                I wanted a vest that would broaden my equipment carrying abilities, to augment my shoulder bag or Cotton Carrier systems, depending which I'm using.

                                I did a fair bit of online research, and found this vest to be the most consistently highly-rated.

                                Having used this for about a month, I am very happy with the purchase. It is very soft, pre-washed cotton, and is *extremely* comfortable. In fact, I seem to be loathe to take this off; it is amazingly comfortable fabric, and the 15 pockets are well arrayed to be functional and a pleasure to use.

                                Velcro closures, tons of storage space, mesh back for comfort and ventilation and good weight distribution when loaded up make this an outstanding vest. Probably the only downside is the cotton material, which would be an issue in the jungle/wet environs. I treated mine with Scotch Guard for outdoor clothing for enhanced water repellancy.

                                There are other vests made of nylon waterproof/breathable material, but in fact, I always find those "breathable" materials not to come close to cotton for comfort. They often retain odor, they don't always breathe so well and often require special washing techniques.

                                And this vest doesn't have monster padded pockets like other photo vests, but I didn't want something that extreme looking; its nice to have a photo vest that works as well as this, in addition to being able to wear it travelling, or to the corner store without looking like I'm on a combat photo mission in Iraq. So, no padding, which is a con I suppose, but I knew that going in so I don't hold that against the product.

                                Great vest. I can't stop using it. Provides a happy home for my array of Singh Ray filters, extra lens and all manner of other kit I seem to pack along on even the shortest walks.

                                              It's very reasonable vest as far as vest's go. I'm somewhat of a fan since I've purchased two of them. Lot's of pockets and the mesh back helps keep the wearer cool.

                                              The only problem is that it seems that the black one's fade faster than they should. It starts fading into somewhat of a brownish state (especially in the mesh areas) first. I wish they would use some type of colon poly blend instead (just like many of the north face gear fabrics) to help the fading issue.

                                                I found it to be very suited for the Scott Kelby's Photowalk. I was able to load up the vest so I could go in light and without a backpack full of gear.I was able to switch lenses and move faster, than a pack allows. I was able to cover more ground during the Photowalk as well.

                                                  Just one issue kept me from giving the vest five stars. On my copy of the vest, the side adjustment does not provide any adjustment. The two adjustment sections are too close together. This is certainly a quality control issue. I plan to cut off and re-sew the forward half on each side forward about two inches.

                                                  The smooth, lint free lining on the inside of the front pockets is great.

                                                    This my second vest. The first is still being used but I required a larger spare. The vest is very worker friendly in that the many pockets provided me with location for filters, three lenses, flash, water, radio, gloves, hat, maps, file pad and pens along with other gear for the photo hunt. Photo hunt took me through caves, mountain tops, deserts, and long walks through trees and rocks.

                                                      This is a vest with more than ample, sturdy pocket space for a Canon 100mm Macro and a 580 EX II. Plus, there are deep pockets on the inside, as well. I didn't want to carry a bag, but knew I would needed to bring along a few extra lenses and filters. This vest accommodates all the addition things I needed to have, with its 15 pockets. It is well constructed and the fit allows the wearer to don a shirt and light jacket with no problem. Though, in the summer, it is a bit warm, especially when fitted with a full kit. But, all things considered, (and do you really want to be taking pictures in mid-day August.), this is a great investment that will be around for years to come.
