    I spent weeks, and many hours, scouring the internet(don't like to by clothing from internet 'cause ya can't kick the tires/try it on to see if it fits the way I want) trying to find a vest that had multiple large and small pockets to carry pocket knife, wallet, cell phone, pen/pencil, flashlight, and various other "every-day-carry" items and I finally decided to buy the Humvee Safari vest. I very much like the vest, wish it had a couple more medium sized pockets and a couple less large pockets, but as a whole it is a great product. My one complaint is the craftsmanship is less than perfect, the first time I closed the front snap closure then opened , the snap broke apart which I fixed by sewing in some Velcro on top of the broken snap, and some of the included Velcro( on the small pockets )was not stitched in place( stitching through the vest material only, not vest material and Velcro ). The one other 'improvement' I would like, and be willing to pay more for, is a more durable fabric like a cotton/polyester blend instead of a light weight 100% cotton. In Summary, great vest, good variety of pockets, good fit(I'm 5' 8" tall, 270 lbs and the 3xl size is great), light weight, and comfortable. Improve the craftsmanship/quality, and up the durability of the fabric and you'll get 5 stars.

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

      This vest is a good quality vest for the price. Lots of pockets and good venting to help keep you cool. I would have rated it a five, but the material is a little on the light side when compared to the more expensive vests offered at B&H. But, I would not be afraid to refer my other photographer friends to this vest. Lots of pockets help with carrying my equipment that I need for whatever I am shooting.

        The vest is exactly what I need for international travel. The number and various sizes of pockets is impressive. The size of the vest was accurate as I expected it to be. Well constructed.

          Love this vest. Purchased to use as daily travel device to replace shoulder tote.

          Wish was available as 4XL. Purchased 3XL, as was largest available and description included comment about oversized. Isn't really oversized. Some shinkage after washing per instructions.

          I wear daily to carry my pens, credentials, personal items, iPad, etc.

                        As one would do with most photo vests I bought this to have some of the smaller tools of the trade handy when out shooting. I had a question on the fit and provided Bruce in customer service my chest and waist measurements. He suggested a xxx size which fit perfectly. This has proven to be a handy tool and performs exactly as Planned. I would recommend this to anyone planning to purchase a photo vest.

                        I bought the vest to use in the Spring and Fall as a lightweight jacket on assignment and to carry small equipment such as lens and lens caps etc. I like the jacket but...found the right front pocket to be weak at the seam. A zoom lens worked its way thru the seam of the pocket (the seam stiching came undone) and into the inside of the vest. We had to have the pocket lining repaired. Overall a nice lightweight jacket, many pockets realistically only useful for small items. Only 2 to 3 pockets useful for lenses. Compared to other similar items, inexpensive.

                          Goodbye to the cumbersome camera bags. This photo vest has provided complete freedom in not having to carry the accessory bags when photographing, particularly in bush land and in the field. The amass of pockets distribute the weight of extra cameras,lenses and other items, well around the chest.

                          I use the vest for photography and as a general utility vest. My last vest was more expensive and it eventually ripped from use so I went with this less expensive vest. This one serves the purposes. I followed the recomendation of ordering one size larger than my usual and that was good advice.

                              I picked it for specific look and functionality. Scored on both counts.

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

                                Have used multi pocket vests on and off for many years as and when the extra space has been needed. The Safari Photo Vest looked good and was very similar to a favourite vest from years ago so the nostalgia factor definately featured in my choice at least initially. Delivery to a UK address was very fast and when I opened the parcel I wasn't disappointed. Size was perfect. material is light weight and my torso breathes well in it. Yes some of the stitching is not quite the highest quality ive ever seen, as other reviews have stated, but I havent had any problems since buying it(I've worn it daily for weeks in sometimes rough Urban conditions,with pockets full of kit, working in a Government roll) so certainly not complaining, just an observation.
                                Its an excellent vest and comfortable being on all day in hot weather. I will be buying more and I most definately recomend it. Good value for money.

                                  For the money this is a great value! Tons of pockets and well constructed. Ordered on the big side so I could wear over heavier clothes this fall.

                                      I have only just received my Vest. It is well finished with plenty of pockets. it will certainly serve the purpose I purchased it for. Mainly for casual use.
