    This is an excellent choice of vests for a photographer. I ordered this for my husband and he really likes the way his long lenses fit into the pockets. It is a snug fit for the lenses, but the pockets work well for these items and they don't slip out when he bends over. The ventilation in the back allows for air circulation and comes in handy for hot weather. My only complaint is that we ordered according to chest measurements, but did not allow for heavier clothing such as sweatshirts, jackets, etc. I wound up sending the 2X size back and ordering a 4X which fits perfectly with heavier clothing and lots of equipment in the pockets.[...] Overall, this vest has enough pockets to carry all photography equipment and also hiking supplies. It is light construction, but seems to be durable. I highly recommend this product for anyone that enjoys hands-free hiking and photography outings.

    Lacks durability

    All three had seams that came apart, one even before the first washing. I cannot imagine putting lenses in the pockets which are so easy to come open at the seams.

    All three had seams that came apart, one even before the first washing. I cannot imagine putting lenses in the pockets which are so easy to come open at the seams.

    This Humvee brand is the least durable of vests I've owned--and I've owned perhaps 40 over the last thirty years.

        The vest met my expectations in every way. It is comfortable to wear and provides the organization and carrying capacity that I was looking for. I just returned from air travel wearing this vest. It was very convenient to remove at airport security and I didn't have to reorganize myself at the end of the conveyor. I would recommend this vest to anyone planning leisure air travel.

                I am planing to use this vest on several upcoming trips including Yosemite National Park. There are numerous pockets. I am a big person going 6' and 250 lbs. The XXL vest is very roomy and will fit nicely over a jacket or large sweater.

                  I ordered a size larger because I wanted to be able to wear it over a sweatshirt. It is lightweight, but seems to be sturdy enough. Many of the pockets are very small and not really useful, but there are plenty of useful pockets.

                    I have been looking for a photographer vest for quite some time but I was always disappointed by the high costs of the items I did find.

                    The Safari Photo Vest by CampCo, feels all my needs at a reasonable price.

                    There is a large variety of pocket sizes to accommodate all your accessories.

                    What I particularly like is the quality but also this vest is 100% cotton and has a fully ventilated back.

                        This is the fourth vest I have purchased of this kind. I previously had one Kaki and two black.
                        The black ones tend to fade with washing after awhile so I went back to Kaki.
                        The material seems thinner on this one than the others...it is lighter weight which helps keep me cool...seems sturdy enough...only time will tell.
                        I gave it only 4 stars because of the thinner material...otherwise this vest is Perfect!

I'm a big guy (250 lbs) and I got the 2XL and it fits perfect. I like to shoot wildlife and now I don't have to carry my bag or backpack. I strongly recommend this vest if you're looking for a good product at a good price.
