Fishing vest: Threat, Menace, or...

Opportunity?

Years ago I got a nice fishing vest to use hauling some 35mm photographic equipment around on vacation. Shortly after that the first digital cameras with zoom got really good. Vest (like new) & film cameras (used in good condition) both went into a closet.

A few days ago, grumbling over hiking with a camera bag of MFT gear, inspiration struck. A body-capped MFT camera & 2 or 3 lenses, plus batteries would fit in my old vest. 14mm to 300mm (28-600 FFe*) covered with no bag? In addition, it was a cool, damp, windy morning in the salt marsh. Another layer would be just fine.

My only regret? The game pouch on the back was hard to reach. First world problem.

*Full-frame equivalent. My 135-format gear at best covered 35-210mm, but at the time I was at 35-100mm. One MFT zoom lens now covers 28-84mm FFe.
