I also just bought a jacket/vest Domke for $79. I didnt realize from the photos that the vest portion is like it was designed for tall torsos. I removed the sleeves (which was the correct lenght and washed the vest alone in hot water to get it to shrink shorter. It did shrink but it needs to shrink even more. Maybe after a few washings I'll be happy. It is comfortable because of good ergonomic design details. You can even get armpit venting by slightly unzipping the sleeves....just enough to have venting. The zipper opens from the bottom so it is just nice.

Anyway, as far as loading the jacket, I keep my boonie hat, water bottle, map, parka, and of course camera and pancake lens. Pockets are huge but the weight of such lenses deform the jacket so much I look silly. Overall the jacket can really hold a lot of junk.
