“This is my second photo vest, the first had too much mesh/”rip stop” that- while lightweight- meant it got snagged and actually ripped quite a bit. I was looking for something a little heavier, and this vest is made of a more “solid” heavy khaki. It is not physically heavy, though and the vest sits well on the shoulders. The waste snaps also help keep the vest tighter to the body so your equipment isn’t swinging around on the vest.

I’m a news videographer, not a still photog (though I use a DSLR in my spare time). I can tell you that the lens pockets on this vest won’t hold larger “L” type lenses, so this proobably isn’t for the pro photog. They would easily hold the canon EF-S line like the basic 15-55mm or even the 70-300mm, but again, any of your 70mm wide lenses aren’t coming with you in this vest (however, they are great for holding lav and stick microphones… score one for audio/video!). Also, the eppalets- while a nice idea- are not going to accomodate a ‘real’ camera strap as the loop on the shoulder is only about an inch wide. Still if you were carrying some other item on a string and you didn’t want it around your neck, these would work… and if you still use a real camcorder, don’t worry, the snap does not dig into your shoulder when you’re shooting.

The vest is still taking some getting used to as it is not left-right simmetrical (my last vest was). The filter pockets are good for smaller items and the pockets along the breast/chest easy accomodate mini-maglites, multitools and other at-hand items (the left front pocket with the diagonal zip is an interesting “fast access” touch that I’m already digging). This vest also features a good number of pen pockets, something probably every profession could use. The final really good aspect of this vest is the large rear pocket. This is a good pocket for a light raincoat/poncho, cables, batteries or more tapes if the inner pockets don’t do it for you.

This vest is right for my job, eliminating my need for an extra bag of gear. For those of you in EFP/ENG, I recommend this.”
