    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.

      Great looking and very comfortable to wear. The variety of pockets and their sizes make carrying a separate bag unnecessary. I use it on day trips to local places so the ease of use is very important to me.

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

      I expected and received a properly fitting photographers vest with plenty of pockets. It meets those criteria in all respects. In addition, it is light weight and well ventilated, perfect for working under hot or conditions of high humidity. Quality is very good except for one minor point.

      When I first received the vest, the zipper seemed stiff and I needed to be extremely careful to get both sides to slide properly. My guess was that it needed a break in and that was the case. After working it and aligning it carefully it now works properly. That's why I gave it 4-starts. It isn't a big point but hopefully it may discourage someone from returning it.

            Used the Safari Vest on a photo trip to Africa in the bush. The vest breaths very well and had plenty of compartments to hold allot of equipment. Many places had weight restrictions and I was able to pack photo gear into pockets Great vest.

              I am a mature but got this as a way to carry gear with easy access. I liked it, my only issue is that the right front pockets I thought we for lenses will not fit a single lens I own. They are small. So I can only carry two of my four lenses...

                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.

                  Comments about Safari Photo Vest, XX-Large (Olive Drab):

                  When I first put it on I was skeptical about the light weight material, but it has held up pretty well even after washing. I don't recommend the OD color if you live in warmer climate. May in Oklahoma is in the 90's and I noticed after a few day sweating in sun shooting baseball that areas of the vest were starting to turn orange. After the first washing it shrunk at least one size, so order it big, the washing didn't help the color change and may have made it worse.

                            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.

                                  I prefer a vest to carrying a heavy shoulder bag. I keep chargers and other items in the bag and don't need to be hauling those items about on a trek through the woods. The vest has pockets enough for me to carry only those items necessary to the task. Appears to be well constructed. I like the vented back. A very good multipurpose item.

                                          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!

                                            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.

                                            This vest is a great alternative when you can't carry a camera bag or back pack, like at air shows.
