A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.

But the top links go to 5xl, including the ubiquitous campco @ B&H

More options from B&H;

Possibly a fishing vest in that size? Might be easier to find. There are many similarities, though a photo-specific is better suited. The biggest downside is that anything with the word "photo" associated with it automatically jumps dramatically in price.

Having said that, I know many people who do use fishing vests, and I tried but it wasn't quite right. I ended up selling it at a garage sale and bought a POTN photo vest, and I love it. Not that that helps you with your size issue, of course.

I also learned that you should buy a vest a couple sizes larger than your jacket size, if possible. In colder weather you'll want to wear it over your jacket and will need the extra room.

Campco is really nice. I've had mine for 25 years, don't use it much, but it is well made from heavy materials.

IF they don't have the size you want listed drop them an email - they do a lot of customising options so chances are they can get a custom one made up.


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

Black is a good color if you are going to Syria on your holidays. Makes you look like a terrorist. You'll blend in fine.

If Syria or Gaza, a layer of Kevlar would be good.
