I picked this up on a whim, it's low cost and I figured it wouldn't set me back too much if it didn't work, but it is surprisingly useful!. My fist shoot with it was an all day shoot on site for a concert in a grain elevator. I was able to bring everything I would normally carry in my bag, flash, extra batteries and memory cards, business cards, ID, rain gear, gloves and phone. I was able to wear the vest under my rain gear and it was very comfortable, easy to use and access to all my gear was great. I'm going to get a second vest in black for the summer concert season.
The Humvee Combat Photo Vest was recomended by a friend and I too would recomend it. Well made, looks expensive, the pockets will make it easy to carry extra lenses. Well vented so it will be cool and confortable.
This vest is still the most superior design available on market (nothing can match it), but material used for the mesh part is not what was previously available when this vest was in a military production. Now nylon mesh is a joke (on three vests from four I tried it was already damaged on a new products, before vests were even used). Until Humvee totally replaces this spider-web thin part with serious durable one, the vest is not practical. I used exclusively this particular design for last 15 years around the world under any possible conditions(having old military version), and I literally beg Humvee to do it right, switching to the military grade durable nylon mesh. Please do it! [In case mesh material varies depending on supply, and if somebody got the good one, please comment and tell where you ordered it -- I need a replacement for mine... Thank you]
I'll leave my camera back pack at home on my next vacation.
