Good value, with flaws,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Movo Photo MB1000 Multi Camera Carrying Vest with Side Holster (Electronics)
I adjusted the vest to fit me, and I'm on the small side so I tightened everything. The center holder sags under the weight of my camera and lens combo. If I have a second camera in the side holder and remove the first camera to use it, the weight of the second camera pulls the vest down and to the side. Kneeling down to use either camera, the vest seems to slide and dangle even more.
There is a safety strap for each camera, in case you lose your grip so your gear seems to stay safe. A small key comes with the ensemble to tighten or loosen the anchor that you affix to the underside of your camera.
For the money I think it's a good value. I'm not sure that buying the more expensive version would prevent vest sag. A vest like this made for smaller people that fit better would be ideal. If you are a bigger person with a muscular chest and a broad back (a man, basically) who could fill in this vest, it will probably be more supportive for you. Or perhaps adding something to the back that would anchor the vest to the back of one's pants or belt to keep the center piece from drooping may help. I may try to engineer something to this effect.
Even with all the sagging and such, for walking around it beats having two camera straps around my neck.

This review seems to be attached to the wrong product. The product here is a backpack attachment system, not a vest.
