A List of the Best Outdoor Photography Clothing

Billingham PhotoVest

Billingham PhotoVest

Ventilation covers around the back allow some wind to keep us cool in hot climates. The thickness of the material is not ideal for use in the hottest climate. The sheer size of the vest (8) means that you can move a large amount of the package.

We tried the women’s, but there is a dress that men can also access. Women can choose a hot pink color, while men have a more red, green and blue tone more quiet. The coat is accentuated by a bolder outdoor air fan. There are plenty of good sized pockets, 2 “dry” chest compartments to store memory cards and a GPS tool. The upper air vents provide temperature control.
