    Vest?

    I am headed to Yosemite in April,. Will be carrying an M9 a Nex 7 and a bunch of lenses. I have a variety of small bags that will hold what I need, but some people have recommended a vest as a way to lighten up. anyone out there have any experience with brands to look for or stay away from? Or features to seek?

    Thanks.

    The most amazing vest I have ever tried (and own) is made by hand in Texas to your measurements and specifications - vestedinterest.com

    I use Camel, and have two different models depending on how many pockets I think I need

    I used to use vests but in the end found them too sweaty, heavy and uncomfortable in many situations. In my mind a much better way to carry your gear is a belt system. When I go hiking, I tend to carry my camera in my backpack as I don't need fast access to it.

    Just something to think about. Others obviously like vests :-)
