Newswear 250881 overview

  • 1Description

The black Men's Documentary Chestvest from Newswear is a more compact alternative to the Men's Digital and Medium Chestvests. It accommodates two smaller-size DSLR camera bodies, as well as two telephoto lenses and accessories. Most telephotos, including a 70-200mm f/2.8, and a 300mm f/4, will fit in the two center pockets. Four main compartments are supplemented by four more accessory pockets inside each flap, and touch-fastener closures secure your camera gear inside. Adjustable buckles and straps make for a one-size-fits-all design that quickly adjusts to virtually any body size or shape, helps keep you cool in warm weather, and fits over winter clothing when it's cold out. The vest distributes the weight of its load across your chest, back, waist and shoulders, allowing you to remain comfortable and stress-free. It is constructed from durable 420-denier crinkle nylon, which is resistant to both water and stains, and made in the U.S.A.

    Men's Documentary Chestvest (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the bill perfectly for me This was recommended strongly by a friend. My was delivered the day before an 8 day trip to Haiti where I knew I needed to carry my stuff around pretty much all day every day. This vest worked perfectly for me. Took about 1 minute to adjust the straps, the pockets fit my lenses well, extra room for batteries and such, even carried sunblock and bug spray in one pocket. The only thing I might do is trim a couple inches off the front velcro straps because on my frame they're a bit long and I folded them down on themselves so they weren't flopping around. This is nothing to do with workmanship or design though, so no complaints from me. I think I'll be using this vest quite often.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Comfortable I have had news wear products since they came to market quite a few years ago and like so many other photographers the constant search for how to carry cameras and lenses on the go sent me in many other directions. I probably own 50 camera bags and back packs and of course there is no perfect bag. The NewsWear gives me the most practical solution in a lightweightl close to the body carrier that gives me quick access to everything I need such as lenses, bodies, accessories, cleaning stuff, etc. in a virtualey weightless vest that distributes the weight across my shoulders. I couple that with a PeakDesign system that allows me to have a camera and lens at the ready all the time. Now, it might look a little weird or even like a weapon but people get used to it soon enough as you will too. Carry safe, comfortable, and ready for the next shot. This review only allows 5 stars. The vest and the peakdesign deserve a lot more than that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks cooler in person. At first I thought I might look like a nerd wearing this. But after it arrived I realized it turns you into a photojournalist stud. Wear this with a nice scarf and you will be unstoppable. This is the best way I have found to carry my kit around on long assignments. No more sore neck and back issues. I think I will buy more products from Newswear. In this vest I was able to fit in my 70-200mm 2.8, Sigma 20mm Art 1.4, Sigma 50mm 1.4, and an SB-900. There is also enough room to fit in a 24-70mm 2.8, instead of the large Sigma 20mm. Strongly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensible piece of gear I shoot video. When you work with a large sensor handheld camera shooting documentaries, you need to have several other lenses at your disposal. If you have to continually go back to a lens case or backpack, you're wasting time and losing shots. So when I saw the Chestvest, it looked like a solution. About two minutes into my first assignment with it, I knew it was invaluable. I had with me another two lenses, a complete radio mike package, additional memory cards, gaffer tape, etc. The producer wanted to use the radio mike immediately. There it was - receiver, transmitter, cables and mike - in one pocket along with spare batteries. Change a lens? Pull open one of the pockets in front of me and there it was. Store the lens I was taking out of the camera - there were the lens caps and in it goes into another pocket. Fast, easy, accessible. It just work so well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite better than expected The material and stitching is top notch - better than expected. The pouches are lightly paded - another plus. However, the shoulder strap can be better. Employing a conventional sliding adjustment system, instead of the current velcro, would greatly advance its range of adjustability and security - what happens to the equipments if the velcro should fail. Lastly, the men's version's shoulder strap frontal attachment points are on the belly which sort of chokes the sides of the neck over time. The women versions' (not available for Documentary model, but availble for Medium and Digital) attachment ponints that are closer to the sides of body prevents such choking - yet, such configuration would somehow compromise the vest's weight bearing capacity. I had mine fixed with my local tailor to have women's version like attachment. Now I can wear it all day without taking it off. Newswear should take a note.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for transporting gear in crowded environments This system is fantastic for transporting photo gear in crowded environments where a shoulder bag or sling bag would get in the way. It is very convenient to access lenses and accessories out of the pouches and is much easier on the lower back than shoulder and sling bags.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Me sorprendi?? los materiales y lo funcional Ten?a tiempo buscando alg??n accesorio que me permitiera moverme libremente en las bodas. Buscaba mochilas laterales o cinturones con estuches para los lentes. El problema es que todo viene por separado y al final tienes un gasto superior y no necesariamente tienes funcionabilidad. Encontr?? por mera casualidad este chestvest y me puse a investigar, pero no encontr?? mucha informaci??n. A??n as? me parec?a la mejor opci??n en precio, comodidad que hab?a visto. Me decid? a comprarlo justo cuando iba a una boda cerca de San Diego. Mi primera impresi??n al abrirlo fue: que buenos materiales. Me lo puse al momento y me quedo a la perfecci??n. Met? un Sigma 20 mm 1.4, un nikon 85 mm 1.8 y un 50 mm 1.4. aparte de mis tarjetas. Tiene incluso dos bolsas ocultas por atr?s. El d?a que lo compre lo us?? y debo de decir que es fabuloso. Se siente ideal para evitar estar cambiando agachado tus objetivos. Te puedes mover con m?s facilidad dentro del evento sin miedo a pegar a alguien con la mochila. Me gust?? mucho y seguro ser? parte de mi equipo. Muy recomendable. Lo ??nico que veo negativo y no es culpa del producto es que en situaciones de calor es excesivo el sudor que acumulas en el ?rea del est??mago.
