Survival Vests

We're going to explore what I like to call 'Survival Vests'. These vest can be fishing, surveyors or photographers vests. The main thing is that they have a lot of pockets for storing a verity of items. Items that you can carry with you no matter where you go. As you probably know by now, we use Amazon to use as a benchmark for reviews on the products that we post on our page, and they must have 100 or more reviews before we use them.
