khumbu photo vest

Khumbu Vest -Front- The Khumbu model has all the standard features of our other models plus some new features. It has thick comfortable shoulder pads that extend out to the edge of your shoulders. These shoulder pads provide extra cushion for heavy loads or if you are carrying a tripod over your shoulder. On the front of the vest is a detachable camera strap. It has adjustable straps that loop through the camera strap holders on the top of your camera.

The top pockets are exactly like the Magnum top pockets. The bottom pockets are exactly like the Magnum bottom pockets except the bottom right pocket is 1" taller. It will accept a Nikon 80-200 F2.8 zoom lens with the lens hood . All of our bottom pockets, on all of our vests, close with velcro for quick access and also have two heavy duty snaps on each closing flap for a more secure closure when you need it.

On the inside of the vest is a pleated mesh pocket located behind each bottom pocket. These inside pockets are good for filters and other accessories.

KhumbuVest -Back-The back of the Khumbu vest has lash straps just like all our other vests. In the middle of the vest is a large tripod pocket with adjustable straps on the sides and a lid to cover the top if decide to carry a large lens like a 500mm. This pocket is padded and also has a drain hole in the bottom in case any water gets in when the top is open. This pocket will carry a Gitzo 300 series tripod. To each side of the tripod pocket is a lens pocket that is sewn on. These pockets are exactly the same as the detachable side pockets that come with the Magnum vest. They also have special hidden loops that allow you to attach a small padlock for security. These pockets will carry a Nikon 300mm F4 lens with a 1.4 converter. They are also perfect for water bottles.
