The Lowepro LP36287-BAM vest design offers a tailored, lightweight and flexible solution to busy sports, news and event photojournalists. Paired with the S&F Technical Belt or S&F Light Utility Belt, it provides a comfort fit and a wide dispersion of a heavy equipment load. Two shoulder adjustments allow a custom fit of the vest-whether you're wearing it with a short-sleeved shirt or windbreaker or jacket. And cinch-down side straps let you adjust the fit across your back and shoulders. A lapel strap keeper secures your camera strap while you're in motion via sturdy straps.
Extra details include: Slip Lock attachment loops, a soft, padded collar for comfort, two handy chest pockets, a hidden, internal cable port for routing, a back stash pocket for stowing low-use items like a jacket, plus hideaway D-rings.

Much easier to carry lenses, etc. than a heavy bag on your back - especially when used in conjunction with the S&F Utility Belt.
I have a bad back/neck and wanted something that I could carry my gear around when I got to an event. Only thing I don;t like about this vest is the pocket room. There is a built in pocket on the left side, not sure why they did not do the same on the right side. Combined with the belt, I can attach just about anything I need on the vest and belt. On a recent hike it worked great. Only problem is if you need to get low while wearing this, it is a little cumbersome to remove and store. Good idea to have someone who can watch this for you.
I have a neck fusion and trying to avoid additional surgery. This allows me to take pressure off of my neck as well as carry a lot more equipment when paired with the technical belt. The only CON I can think of is it is a little awkward if you need to take this off to sit for eating. But that it not a negative, just something you have to work out. I did give this only a 4 as i would like to see more hidden pockets to hold your phone or small items on the inside right side.
