I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on a photo vest. Main purpose would be to offload weight out of the camera bag so that it meets the weight requirements if they decide to weigh it at the airport. In the past I've hidden lens in jacket pockets but not always practical. Next potential use would be for hikes when I don't want to lug around the camera bag but would still need / like a number of items. I want something that is well built and comfortable to wear when loaded. I've got a couple of different camera bags so not really looking for a recommendation along that line.

I've found a number of options but really looking for someone with personal experience with any of the following;
- Domke Vest
- Scottevest (don't think this would work for DSLR and lens)
- Tilley's (Multi Tech Excursion Vest)
- The Vested Interest

Others that I might have missed? The biggest problem that I'm finding is that they don't seem to be stocked locally so you can't even try them on to get an idea if they would work or not with the exception of the Tilley's.

Thanks for any input!
