I've been a professional photographer for over fifty years. In that time I have owned about a dozen working vests. I've even tried vests for fly fishing, hunting and yes, vests specialized for photography. With today's restrictions on just how much we carry in our carry-on luggage and being a photographer, you have to chose what to carry in your carry-on luggage and how much you can carry in your checked luggage. I NEVER put photography equipment in my checked baggage as it will"grow legs". I also avoid "Thieves Row", also known as Heathrow in Britain because they have a real lack of security, even going through their security. What's a person to do? Carry as much as possible on your person so it's not out of yours sight, except when it goes through the X Ray machine. Even in Paris, when leaving, it's really interesting how they want to make sure that lenses are lenses. So i put as much as possible in my various vests and jackets. Yes, we used specialized photo bags such as Kata and the think Tank International line of bags. However we still need more room. This vests really fills the bill for its ability to put 24 ounces into a 16 ounce can. I bought this model with the zip off sleeves because the convertibility of the vest/ jacket. I've worn out pockets carrying other stuff and this jacket really wears like iron and with the mesh liner, it is reasonably cool.

I would have bought this jacket but according to this size chart, no adult will fit into this jacket. The size chart says the chest sizes are 25 - 29 (no units such as inches given). A normal adult large T-shirt wearer has about a 36 inch chest. The sleeve lengths are appropriate for adults, not kids. And bottom hem width? Give me some clue as to where this is measured. Until they fix this web site, you don't know what you will get.

Comments about Convertible Travel Jacket:

My husband is on his third travel jacket. We bought the first one when we went to Europe, that was 8 years ago. He travels for a living and can't do without the pockets in this jacket. He carries at least three electronic devices, tickets, earbuds, kleenex, and other items necessary that he can get to quickly and easily.

            It is a gift for my husband. He gets stuck carrying his stuff and mine when we travel. He loves all the pockets (and I do, too). Haven't been any where to need it yet but it will come in handy later this year. Being able to remove the sleeves will keep him comfortable whatever the weather. I don't expect any complaints about this purchase.

                  I was looking for numerous pockets of different sizes, inside and outside the jacket with zippers and also velcro. Detachable arms are also very appreciated for warmer climates.

                  Great product for climate in Canada and for travel in Europe.

                    The jacket seems fine, but I have not worn it yet. I will try it for the first time during my next trip overseas. My reason for buying it was strictly to try to save on carry-on and expedite security screenings at airports. As I said, I have not tried it yet.
