Summary: I've been non-critical when it comes to vests when the time came to needing one, I made lotsa R&D about them. When I finally chose this one, I was surprised how thin it was. Overall it is of high quality, very breathable, and light. The pockets are aplenty and they don't droop when filled (which shows how strong the materials are). My only gripe is that I feel it is a bit over sized. I am usually XXL this one looks a bit borrowed when on me.
Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality, Lightweight
Summary: I have had several vests over the years and this one tops them all. This vest is really a wash and wear and it doesn't wrinkle. The material is thin and light, lint and hair doesn't cling and it always looks neat. The pockets are in exactly the right locations so I can find things without looking down. The flaps are easy to close, yet they keep everything secure. I even found that the zippered vents in the front shoulders were excellent for storing my sunglasses.
Summary: I purchased this for an outdoor photography workshop and was not disappointed. The vest has 14 different pockets which allows you to organize your gear and have it at hand when needed. The two large interior pockets are able to hold a short or medium zoom and a macro lens easily. Outside pockets are great for holding filters, cables, flashes, light meter, memory cards, cell phones, business cards, etc. The back pocket can hold a thin rain poncho, or gloves and a hat.

Summary: The material is traditional duck canvas so its not an all weather vest. The two slash zipper pockets on the upper chest are easy to use and close with one hand. There could be more smaller pockets for data cards, filters, etc. and a pen slot or two would also be nice. It has the snap epaulets for holding camera straps on your shoulder which is essential. A few external snaps hooks would help keep more of your shooting equipment near your fingers.
