No problem with CF cards in pockets

Summary: Interesting comment from previous reviewer. The neopreme card pockets are a little stretchable, so I have not problem putting in my CF memory cards. Because the way pocket flap is stitched (and that it's stretchy like a scuba wetsuit), I've never lost a CF card by falling out of pocket. However, I do see that it may not work with SD cards. CF cards are somewhat rigid, while you can easily bend and break a SD card.
Summary: I highly recommend it. I love the memory pockets, which I fit my CF cards in. I have it for about 2 years now. Very comfortable with the heavy padding. I've no problem using it on a 70-200mm lens, walking around on my shoulder all day. I'm going to get another one for my secondary camera, immediately.
Summary: The strap is good, feels good and sets good. Problem lies with the pouches, the regular size memory chips will not fit securely in the pouches. No real big deal for using the strap, disappointing with not being able to secure memory cards. Oh well!
