OGIO Flight vestWhen looking for a way to carry the basics for a photo shoot; digital camera, extra lenses, batteries, film, flash memory cards, cell phone, drinks and a few tools, one not need to look far from the beaten path. We found an inexpensive solution from OGIO in their flight vest.

The flight vest comes in a one size fits most, color black, and has enough storage pouches and zippered pockets to handle most anything you may need to carry. The three small pouches on the front right-hand side of the vest are the perfect size for extra batteries, a cell phone, and flash memory cards or rolls of 35mm film. Continuing on the right-hand side of the vest, there is one large zippered pocket just behind the three small pockets. This pocket is perfect for an extra camera lens or a place to put your shades. Just above these are two additional zipped pockets perfect for a wallet or other medium sized items. We used these pockets to store our wallet and extra memory cards, plus a note pad.

The left-hand side of the vest consists of two pockets.  The lower pocket is the same size as the zippered pocket just behind the 3 small pockets on the right-hand side.  There is enough storage room in this pocket for a pair of gloves, goggles or something similar in size. The pocket above is similar in size to a gun holster, making it ideal for longer items.  The rear of the vest contains two pockets on either side measuring 15" tall by 5" wide by 3" deep," and one pouch down the center with a Velcro closure. The left-hand pocket contains a small tool holding pouch that can hold several wrenches and then a larger pouch just behind these that can hold larger tools. Down the center of the back is a pouch ready to accept any type of camelback hydration system.

Construction and fabric is superb. The stitch work is top notch and will hold up to many years of use. The zippers should last the life of the vest too. There are two compression straps on either side of the vest to snug up the vest around the mid-waist, and three compression straps on the front to lock the vest on securely. On the back just below the neck, is a nylon mesh to allow air to flow through the vest from the front, which allows body heat to escape easily. The vest weights in at 3.44 pounds empty. The shoulders have extra padding sewed into the material for extra comfort when the vest is loaded down.

Black is certainly not a friendly color for a hot summer day. However, the black color will help hide mud or other dirty spots that one would see on any other color of vest.  In addition, the OGIO flight vest incorporates a pouch on the back for any type of camelback hydration system.  So when you are hot, you can sip on your favorite beverage from your hydration system. Furthermore; you could use this same pouch for carrying water bottles or other drinks if one does not have a camelback hydration system.

In short, the OGIO Flight vest, at an affordable price of $79.99, brings you the unique style and versatility with a rugged construction that features multiple storage pockets. It's equipped with goggle pockets, multi-functional pockets, a magazine pocket, an internal zippered pocket, a tool organizer panel, a cell phone pocket, and back storage areas.  We would recommend this for anyone looking for an alternative to using a backpack for carrying those much needed items while riding or doing infield photo shoots.
