I’ve been wearing photo vests for almost thirty years and over time have watched them evolve from a convenient way of having a few extra pockets to wearable camera bags. Camera bags may be luggage but vests are also fashion and style is just one of the many different factors in choosing what photo vest is the right one for you. Here’s a few more:
The Q.U.E.S.T. Vest for Men that I’ve been wearing lately is packed with more features than you can imagine! It has 42—count’em—pockets to hold lots of gear and has a zippered compartment in the collar to stow the hood along with a giant back pocket to stash larger items.
It’s made from 65% cotton and 35% nylon fabric making it suitable for temperate weather, comfortable enough to be worn indoors and can be layered with other garments for cooler temperatures like we get here in Colorado. The vest is treated with Teflon for water and stain resistance.
For shooting motorsports, all those pockets will come in handy because carrying a large lens and monopod doesn’t leave room for schlepping a camera bag. And sonofagun the Q.U.E.S.T. Vest looks nice too, unlike the fisherman’s vest styling of others I’ve tried over the years.
