    This is a great utility vest. I have been wearing one almost every day for work and travel for about 5 years. Of bought about 10 of them in that time and found none better. The inside zippered pocket is great for securing my checkbook. The other inside pocket holds my pocket calender. Front pocket securely holds my Blackberry for easy access. Other large breast pocket hold a point and shoot digital camera.
    Large flap pocket in back holds an 8 1/2 by 11 spiral notebook and keeps it dry and out of the way. Small zipper pocket above the camera pocket holds 4 AA battery case and 3 or 4 Mini usb drives. And there's more.
    They are not making them any more and are getting harder to find. The thing to look for is the zippered pocket on the inside right lapel.

        I used this vest in Iraq and Agfhanistan for over two years was great. Could carry a mre in the left front top pocket and two bottles of water in the right bottom pocket and if you put them in frozen they kept you cool for half a day. I used it for international traval could put every thing in the pockets and just put it in the scanner on fuss no muss.

        Comments about Humvee by CampCo Safari Photo Vest - 4X-Large (Black):

        I use this vest for EVERYTHING! From everyday use instead of a backpack, (I put all my "stuff" in the pockets), to fishing, camping, shooting (I fill the pockets with ammo, clips, pistols, binoc's, etc), and of course it works great for what it was made for, loading up all my camera's and any extra things I may need to go on an extended photo safari! Not to sure about the plastic zippers. They have been fine so far but if they give me any trouble they will be replaced by some heavy duty brass zippers with not much trouble. I can sew well! Only problem is remembering which pocket things are in. If you put them in the same place always, it becomes second nature & you go right to it without thinking.

        Comments about Humvee by CampCo Safari Photo Vest - 4X-Large (Black):

        I have to preface this by stating that you need to order one or two sizes LARGER than you think you need. I originally ordered a 2XL (which I normally wear and the measurements looked right) but I had to return it. The 4XL fits perfectly and B&H was SUPER fast with my exchange.I've been looking for a high quality vest for a while but I was reluctant to pay [$] for some of the vests I've seem on photo sites. I'm 6'6 so I needed a long vest, which was not easy to find. The mesh back is nice, lots of great pockets, I'm very pleased with this purchase. I can easily carry a Canon 24-105 lens on my camera, a Canon 70-200, 50mm, and Speedlight in the vest pockets, and rotate as needed. I know I could carry more but rarely need to.Highly recommend, don't let the Humvee brand scare you off. It's a nice item!

          Good vest but mesh material on back shrinks when washed and makes vent panels stick out like a hunch back, had to have panels adjusted and stiched - other than that great vest.

              This is a great utility vest. I have been wearing one almost every day for work and travel for about 5 years. Of bought about 10 of them in that time and found none better. The inside zippered pocket is great for securing my checkbook. The other inside pocket holds my pocket calender. Front pocket securely holds my Blackberry for easy access. Other large breast pocket hold a point and shoot digital camera.
              Large flap pocket in back holds an 8 1/2 by 11 spiral notebook and keeps it dry and out of the way. Small zipper pocket above the camera pocket holds 4 AA battery case and 3 or 4 Mini usb drives. And there's more.

                  very useful, but wrinkles easily and runs a little small, if you are between sizes order the larger. great for gear. there are a lot of pockets so one must remember where one puts things, otherwise vest could cause confusion rather than benefits

                  The product works just fine. So many pockets and hiding places, I forget where I put things. I suggest you get a larger or a much larger size than you would otherwise wear. Afterall, it is a part of your working gear not a fashion statement (think khaki overalls). Larger size leaves more room to breathe and reduce heat in summer months; in colder weather it allows a jacket or coat to fit underneath.
