Photo Vest
Do you use anything like this: Amazon.com : Military Type Recon Vest : Airsoft Tactical Vests : Sports & Outdoors

It's a travel vest that is light weight but could work for video purposes like holding your lenses? What do you guys use? I need something light weight because I sweat way too much.

Re: Photo Vest
I have a fishing vest. Also have a camouflage utility/tool belt. I don't use either very often anymore since I no longer use tapes. The pockets are good for carrying things like spare batteries. I even have a big pouch on the belt that holds rain gear for me, and another that holds rain gear for the camera.

These are fine for when I'm shooting sports, construction sites, outdoor trade shows etc., but don't look good at a wedding, except the sand colored vest looks okay the way I usually dress at a beach wedding.

Of course, here in Florida, wearing a vest over any type of clothing just makes the sweating worse.

Re: Photo Vest
I tried using a Lowepro photo vest a few times but here in Hawaii, like Florida, it makes the sweating much worse.

I switched to using the ThinkTank Photo Modular skin belt system and have been much happier (and drier) since.
