    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    Fergit that stuff. All you need is a nice long scarf. Ask anyone who shoots for VII.

    That's Gitzo for you. Charging a premium for whatever they stick their name on.

    It isn't out of line with the price point of a high quality mountaineering jacket. That said, while it appears they are using an expanded PTFE waterproofing system (this is what Gore-tex is), it isn't goretex and is therefore significantly above most competitors price points. Want similarly equipped jacket. Buy the Mountain Hardware Exposure Parka for ~$200 (uses Mountain Hardware's Conduit ePTFE material). Or at the $400-500 price point you can find stuff like Arcteryx's Alpha LT parka and The North Face Mamatus jacket - both at $500, both Gore-Tex.

    If you want something afordable: go into a shop that sells angling gear. Vests for fly-fishing are a lot cheaper than this and have as many or even more pockets.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I got an old army jacket a little big for me with pockets and removed the sleeves. Just depends on whether you want to look professional or practical, I guess.
    Thank you.

    Maybe this is what really drives up the price:

    Lightshield: an additional cover inside the hood that protects the camera from water and the iced screen from light.

    Does it have a long narrow pocket for this?--

    Or maybe the leather case that comes with it is sufficient.

    I'm surprised I haven't seen a Leica with a matching Hermes leather jacket.

    Try an army surplus store. They have lots of options for vests and jackets and should work just fine for photographers' needs.
