Rated 5 out of 5 by from With this vest + pouches you can move fast! My first impression was "I feel like a soldier", and then I thought about it - It makes sense: Being able to move fast and adjust to the situation is what reportage is all about! I´ve been using this product for several years, and the feeling of putting the vest on is great - I enter a mode of alertness and readyness! I clearly remember shooting an adventure race in the desert - I was with a group of photographers in a 4x4 vehicle - All of a sudden we see a team in the dunes, and everybody leaves the car sprinting towards the faraway team. I was the only one with all my gear (several lenses + flash) All the other photographers had left their bags in the car...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product for S&F photography I have The S&F belt in conjunction with this S&F Technical Vest and what a combination, Love it. I am a Photographer that loves to carry a lot of gear when Street or Field shooting But I have a Back and shoulder problem , so this Belt and Vest Answered my Prayers . It spreads the weight of my Gear all over my Body Thus Keeping me Fresh for photographing all day Long. I was in Rome some months ago with some other 34 photographers on a City photo Shoot and I was the oldest one of them (47 Years the rest were between 24 and 39) but I was the only one standing by the end of the day with no BACK or NECK PAIN. Never leave on a trip without the Kit , also got a lot of Pouches From Lowepro as well attached to it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish this came in different sizes. I bought this about a year ago, but had to return it due to a "one size fits small" selection. I am big and tall, 6'5", ~300lbs. I wanted something to able to ruck long distances with gear in and well as have all my photojournalism and note taking gear accessible. A year later, still no change in the size.

Question & Answer

Have any smaller people tried this?

As a fairly petite woman at 5'4", I am having a difficult time finding a vest that seems like it will fit. Specs say that the small/medium is designed for chest sizes 42-50 inches-- mine is only 32. Ten extra inches seems like enough to make the vest a potential hindrance. Will this vest work for someone my size or will I have to continue my search?
Asked by: Amanda
Hi Amanda. I know that this is probably way too late for your needs. I don't often look at the Q&A's unless I looking for an answer myself. I think the S/M would sute your purposes as it covers the 32 to 40 size range.

I have called several retailers trying to find out if they carry this item. None have it. Where can I find it so that I can try it on? I have already consulted the Where to Buy search link, and I have called all the stores near me.
