I am 5:6 and about 195 lbs. Chest is around 46-48 inches. Is this the correct size? I would wear either with a T shirt or a thick sweat shirt. Will this be a good fit length and girth ( around the front). Thanks.

How deep in inches is the left bottom pocket? I have one of these vests bought a few years ago and the pocket holds a reporter's notebook, but now it looks like the whole vest and the bottom pockets are shorter.
Asked by: Julia
Not all "reporter's notebooks" are the same size--an 8" notebook will not fit entirely in the pocket; a 6" notebook is a bit too tall, but will fit with the flap open a bit.

How big are the padded pockets? I have a very large Cannon 75 - 200 zoom lens We're going to Ireland & I want to put all my photo gear in this.
Asked by: Keith
Hi Keith,Based upon my so far limited use of this vest, I would caution you to think of it for all of your photo gear if all of your photo gear is as heavy as mine. On a local shoot I stuffed a smaller Canon zoom into one of the large front pockets and it tore through the inner pocket lining so I had to work to fish it out. The vest is made for all of the small stuff.BH has many other alternatives for the big gear. My wife and I just flew to the Florida keys for a vacation and I found the ultimate solution for all my photo gear was the Vanguard camera case that looks exactly like a piece of carry on luggage and fits the overhead racks in the airplane. My Canon 7D, G16 small cam, and several lenses including the 70-200, plus 2 flashes and all the other small stuff fit like a glove. Plus, I had the security of knowing it wasn't in baggage. And, while you're driving around in your rental car, it disguises itself as just a small suitcase. When I ran it through airport security's xray, they didn't even open it.So, how did I carry on road trips in the keys? Slung the big cam over my shoulder with the selected lens for the trip, hanging toward my back and the G16 in a small belt case. Just carefully planned ahead with fully charged batts and lots of room on the cards. Worked great for that trip. Came home with nearly a thousand shots that distilled down in post to a nice 200 shot slide show.I like the vest for when I'm doing the kind of shoot where all the small stuff might be important and I can't get back to my car or base in case I need a flash, lens cleaner gear, and so on.Good shooting in Ireland!Can't find the bill of sale at the moment for the Vanguard case but I'll bet if you call up BH and give them my email address, they can look up my purchase. Within the last year. Only big case bought from them.

Is this material cool enough for Africa in September?
Asked by: Doug S.
I never been in Africa, sorry. I used it in Israel in March-April. It was cool enough for Israel. However it is not build very practical on my opinion. The quality of material is so-so.
