    LOL - You might be on to something! Think suitcase coat in black, hair black, black goth dress and black high heels - I could go shooting at night dressed as a vampiress and no one would bother me because they'd be too afraid!

    Or we could put a guy with sock suspenders and a very short shorts in that coat, and he would no longer be suspected of terrorism when he photographs. Might still be visited by the police.

    Mark want to volunteer to test it?

    My son-in-law is on the Minneapolis SWAT team. He gave me a tactical vest that is absolutely the best photo vest I have ever seen. It is available from law enforcement supply houses.

    My Pentax digital spot meter drops into one of the pouches just like it was designed for it. It has large slotted pockets inside that handle camera back covers and fresnel lenses beautifully. You can check it out here:

    They carry a size small but I am certain it is a men's small.

    Glock pistol supplied seperately.

    That is too funny, Aggie! haha

    Hey that denim shirt idea is pretty cool...you don't have to sew... get some of that fabric glue! (I am a non-sewer as well).

    I'm going to look at one of those fly-fishing vests... that vest I have is fine for cold/cool weather, but man... it gets hot!

    I can relate to the "I know it's here somewhere" thing, Flotsam! hahaha

    I would love to hear your recommendations for a vest that isn't going to swallow me; I'm 5'2" and 110 lbs. thereabouts.

    Thanks!
    There are some of us who have never owned or worn a photo vest, and proud of it. Seems like a gimmick to me, but hey, what do I know.

    I have the campco one also and the zippers are the pits.

    Some ideas:

    www.filson.com (outdoor supply vendor that has a great fishing vest). Expensive but good

    www.scottevest.com

    This is a great company that makes jackets (not really vests) with lots of hidden pockets plus a great system that allow you to run wires (headphones for iPods and cell phones) through the lining up to your ears. The geek in me loves their products.

    Take a look at the current Canon EOS ads with the members of the VII agency. These guys are all "in uniform" and no vests -- just generic urban safari-ish gear (takes a beating, big pockets, easy to wash). The vest screams "official photographer over here!" which is usually not a good thing in my book.

    I have an anorak I bought at Eddie Bauer for $40. It's my standard rain jacket and travel coat. I can carry my Contax, three lenses, 8 rolls of film, a strobe and sometimes an EOS body in the pockets. Plus my wallet. It's a good middle weight for both summer and winter (with sweaters) -- I've worn it in July in LA (it's too big, I admit -- but that gives it breathing space) and in bitter Swedish/Minnesotan winters (with a sweater or two). Even wore it in Hawaii from time to time.

    The only time I think I would want a vest would be at weddings -- the black ones would function well under a suit jacket.

    Any Canadian Photographers tried this vest? Tilley is a legend in Canada for outdoor adventure stuff and the vest looks really good.
