        Comments about Domke Photogs Convertible Jacket/Vest, Medium (Khaki):

        I was concerned about the sizing issue. I am 5ft7inch and 71kg. I took a punt on the Medium size and it has paid off. The arm length is perfect. Lots of pockets! Very comfy I am wearing it around the house. The only problems for me so far is the velcro on the sleeve cuffs tend to catch on the velcro on the outside pockets. I would have hoped for quieter pocket opening system on the pockets particularly on safari. However, I am happy with my purchase and the test will be using it to carry my camera gear through international check-in next week!

        I'm sorry that I didn't buy one sooner.

            Comments about Domke Photogs Convertible Jacket/Vest, Medium (Khaki):

            I have considered this jacket/vest over the years but could not bring myself to buy one. Now that I have it, I think that it is one of the best purchases that I have made. i took a two week trip earlier this year and wish that I had this with me. I was always stuffing a lens or other equipment in my jacket and had I had this there would have been room for everything and I wouldn't have looked like a pack horse. I wear it often and the versatility is great. It fits well and it's reasonably warm if you dress in layers. It seems very well made and IMO, it looks great. It really is far more stylish than portrayed in the ad pictures, and I think that that is why I didn't buy one sooner. So far, I haven't noticed any negatives.

              Comments about Domke Photogs Convertible Jacket/Vest, Medium (Khaki):

              Very well designed jacket. I like everything about it including price ($550 for a similar product from Manfrotto) Some will argue that I am comparing chevy with bmw - I disagree. i lke the feel of natural cotton, perfect placement and size of pockets, zip-out sleeves. Velcro flaps are quicker to open-close then zip or clip. It feels a bit delicate so i am not sure how durable it will turn out, particularly that I am wearing it every day:) I am 6'1", 185 lb and usually wear "large" size. DOMKE I had to exchange for medium.

              Comments about Domke Photogs Convertible Jacket/Vest, Medium (Khaki):

              I love the weight of the material, very rugged. That said, after two weeks, the stiching of the velcro on the left cargo pocket has unraveled,and the zipper is a great hassel, it keeps comming a- part and jamming, twice to the point that I had to take the jacket off like a sweater. It's new so I'll send it back for another one. Other then that I really like it.
