    I changed to this size after i found that the S size was big for me. I wear shirt size 40. The quality is really nice, i wouldnt mind even carrying the Nikon 70-300 VR in the inside pocket. It has many pockets for easy access. I am going to use this in all my trip even if i am not doing a photo-shoot.

    The mesh at the back lets it breath and you are not left with sweat on your back.

    I ordered this vest to wear during documentary photography projects so I could lug all my gear while having my hands free. It seems well designed and constructed: the different-sized pockets are perfect for my assorted lenses and accessories, and the vest is breathable which is great for hot weather.

    However, the sizing for this vest runs HUGE!!! Other reviewers had mentioned this as well, so since I wear a ladies' size 6, I ordered the X-small. To put the actual size in perspective for you, let me just say... the X-small vest fit my boyfriend (normally a men's size XL) PERFECTLY. He is 6'2", 230 pounds, and could put this on, zip it up, and put stuff in the pockets... comfortably!!

    Needless to say, the vest was huge on me, so I returned it. That being said, if this actually came in my size, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Price up, quality down

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

    Had one of these in black that I bought from B&H previously at a significantly cheaper price. Liked the design even though the material was flimsy. Wanted another color but it was out of stock for a long time. Finally back but much higher price but thinner fabric and poor construction. Falling apart after only a few weeks of wear.

      Comments about Safari Photo Vest - X-Small (Olive Drab):

      So many pockets. Just be sure you order the right size, I'm an average-height person with a light build and this fits great.--The small size would have fit a larger person perfectly I'd like to think.I descovered this after first ordering this in a "small" first.Just get this vest if you're around an "average" height but you weigh under 140lbs. I weight about 120LBS and it has some confort room..Like I said, I returned this vest in a small.The process was a minor set back, but ultimatly B&H helped me get the right size fast.

      It fits my needs, good basic vest that's not so basic! Loaded with some nice features (*see spec sheet*) and be sure to choose "Extra Small if you're a slimmer person like me, you can't go wrong with extra small. I'd imagine looking over the measurements of the product will help you out with deciding on the right size that works for YOU. This vest is of nice quality..

            Well constructed, smaller size vest. Used on extended solo video shoots in inhospitable locations, run and gun stuff. Lots of pockets for extra batts, audio recorders, flashlights etc. Like the option of the smaller size because other brands only go down to Small. Perfect fit, perfect vest.

              Ordered this after searching for an xs size made for a woman. Must say that the vest was well made but the sizing is way off. The xs woman's fit my brother. If the pockets were filled with gear, I wouldn't have been able to move without knocking myself out.

                Yes, the vest does run large. My original large size was for a costume and worked well. My new XS is a good fit and great for plane trips. It eliminates the need for a purse and leaves my hands free for my carry-on bag. Of course, with all the many pockets, I had to make a list to know where I'd stashed everything for quick retrieval!

                        Comments about Safari Photo Vest - X-Small (Olive Drab):

                        The photo vest was purchased prior to leaving for a six-week trip overseas. It was intended to augment accessory pockets that are usually used to store camera accessories during photography in the field. As it turned out, the vest had so much storage that it provided an extra "carry-on" that could be worn going through airports. Not only did it handle photo gear, but the pockets were large enough to carry guide books and binoculars and provided organization for the myriad of small items carried while traveling. For my purposes, I made the large lower right pocket even bigger and more useful for large medium-format lenses and other bulky items by removing the vertical stitching that originally partitions the pocket into two smaller ones and then reinforcing the area where a few stitches at the bottom of the pocket were taken out.

                        Before purchasing the vest, I looked at several brands and didn't find too much difference between them other than the quality of the finish which wasn't of much concern to me. The Humvee vest seems to be reasonably durable. Like a number of other reviewers, note that the vest sizing runs really large! Typically, I wear a mens' medium and sometimes a large in almost all clothing. An X-small was just the right size after trying several at another retailer (they didn't have the right color in the time needed so it was purchased at B&H). Note that the vest does get a bit uncomfortable during warmer weather when loaded up with gear so other clothing may need to be shed accordingly.

The quality is really nice, i wouldnt mind even carrying the Nikon 70-300 VR in the inside pocket. It has many pockets for easy access. I am going to use this in all my trip even if i am not doing a photo-shoot.

                            The mesh at the back lets it breath and you are not left with sweat on your back.

                            Just got my vest. Love it. It doesn't go well with my stillettos but it works well with my lenses.I just wish I had this vest in Paris. I found myself stuffing my coat and pockets with all my gear. Watch the sizing, it runs big. I wear a size 8 and I ordered a small [...]

                              I am a small framed women and got a X-Small and it was still big on me. Love all the pockets on the outfit. Carried all my stuff I needed right on me. Great hidden comparment on the inside back part of the vest where I kept some stuff too. Used it on my Egypt trip and will use it again and again. Great vest for outdoor excursions. Only one of the zippers kept on sticking.

                                I'm a zero petite female photographer, and this Humvee X-Small vest is not the Ann Taylor XS we're talking about here. It's a little "wider" than you think. May fit the 3 petite people in there horizontally speaking. The arm holes are large, too...BUT...vertically, it is fine, has the perfect length and has plenty of room for storing your gadgets.

                                Nice jacket with lot of pockets. I had checked with the local camera shop and they were selling for the same price a jacket with much less pockets. I used it for two ocassions and I could fit all my gears, batteries, chargers, 50mm 1.4, 60mm 2.8 etc in the it. Highly recommended.
