Fit, storage space, value.

Super look, lots of "cargo space," and great fit. Looks much more expensive than it was.

Main Zipper Fails

One of the primary reasons I purchased this vest was because it had a 2-way main zipper; unfortunately the main zipper failed within the first 2 weeks of use. Also one of the pocket linings has torn. I'll be looking for a higher quality product with the same features.

By Valena C.

Bought this vest as a replacement for my husband. He loves it. Will probably buy a second one at some point. Good material and well made. Highly recommend,

 

Best vest ever!!

By Anita G.

from Roslyn heights, NY, US

I love my new Humber safari vest and what a bargain compared to others. It looks very expensive and is perfect for everything. The only thing it does not have that I would have liked is a hood!! I would buy another one if it had a good. I am so glad and waited for it to be restocked!!

 

thired time

By Charlotte T.

from Laytonville, CA, US

My husband found this vest so many years ago we have no idea when he got the first. Now he is on the third one! I saved the labels so it was easy to replace. He is not easy on clothes and wears this almost every day, till pockets tear and edges are frayed and I can no longer get stains out. He claims 5 yrs each and he would go longer. Friends call it his best friend. I call it necessary. We believe this one will even last longer since I say tatter for work and new for social.

 

Great for traveling

By The T.

I used this on a recent trip to Australia and it was terrific. I never worried about leaving anything I needed behind, and I could easily find everything I needed. The pockets were well-designed and organized; the vest was lightweight and comfortable. It was like having a carry-on without the added luggage.

 

Great Buy great price!

By Jeanette t.

This vest was and is a great investment! I bought it to take with me on an African Safari, it was great, just what I needed it served the purpose and some. This is a great looking vest, a bit on the heavy side but it complimented my safari outfit as no other. I was and am pleased with the vest. I know I will be wearing it as a part of my causal weekend wear.

 

Great travel vest

By Marcia T.

Cool, versatile, reasonably priced[...]

 

Pretty good vest

By John M.

from Alexandria, VA, US

It has all the pockets that I wanted, and then some. One of the pocket liners, though, unraveled in the seam and we had to sew it back up. A bit of hasty workmanship there, but not a big problem.

 

Functinal and very soft, comfortable.

By Darla

Just what I was looking for. Not too masculine for a woman, x-small fits nicely. Love the soft fabic and lots of pockets. Perfect for travel.

 

Almost exactly what I wanted.

By Karl s.

I use this for photograghy, Idon't always have to carry a pack! also I can fit my kevlar pads inside without looking like I'm part of the military.

 

Great Photographers Vest

By Kazoo P.

Delivery was prompt. Delivery costs were a little high could be lower.

 

Photo vest

By Juan Z.

About the right size of vest, with many pockets for a traveling photographer, faced with airline weight restrictions. The mesh under the outer vest is great for hot climates. I have used a similar constructed vest in 120 degree F temperatures. The vest would have gotten 5 stars if it had epaulets to support a 2 in. camera strap.

 

Not impressed. Have an L L Bean vest for 20 years that still looks and wears great.

By Ted L.

from Surfside Beach, SC, US

It doesn’t hold its shape very well. Some of the pockets are useless and confusing. Probably wouldn’t recommend it.

Greatly bigger than the usual size!

By JANET H.

I use this to have enough pockets to carry everything I need for doing chores for my goat herd. I will also use it for hot air ballooning. I haven't actually worn it yet because it is so much bigger than the other one I got. It is the same size, same brand, different style and is fully 8 inches bigger around. It's a medium and I am pretty sure a 300 pound man could wear it and it would be roomy. No smaller sizes are currently available that I can find. These would be unbelievable if they were a reasonable size.
