Rated 5 out of 5 by Israel Great vest for travel or photography
I just got the best and I'm impressed by its quality so far. This vest replaces a favorite of mine, Banana Republic's Photojournalist vest which is no longer made. I hope it lives up to the standards set by its predecessor.

Like most LL Bean products, this Traveler Vest is very well made, well thought out and should meet and exceed most people's expectations. As a photographer, birder and nature hiker, this vest, like the last vest I purchased from LL Bean more than 25 years ago, will get plenty of use. The only thing this newer vest does not have that my old one did, is the big zippered "game pocket" that runs across the lower back, where I carried large items such as rolled up ponchos and a towel or two. On this newer vest, however, there is a button tab closure across the center front that comes to good use when wearing in warm weather. It allows one to keep the front of the vest un-zippered and open but keeps the vest from flapping about and getting snagged on things in passing, which often happened with my older vest. I'm very pleased with this Travel Vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldHeloIP Nice Vest
Initially purchased the khaki vest to cover those items attached to my belt which needed to remain concealed. This vest is perfect for that purpose. But beyond that, this thing has USEABLE buttoned and zippered pockets everywhere! No more frustration looking for somewhere to stow stuff. I especially like the zippered pocket for glasses which is hidden along the front closure zipper. And speaking of glasses, the cleaning cloth attached inside the l/front cargo pocket is a nice touch. Great on the motorcycle, too. For what it's worth, I'm now the proud owner of the green version as well. Honestly, for me this is now a "must have".

Rated 5 out of 5 by pqann Love those pockets
I bought this jacket for my husband, because he was complaining that his light-weight jacket didn't have enough pockets. This casual vest has 11 pockets and he was ecstatic when he saw it. We were at a multi-dealer craft festival in Connecticut last weekend and four people came up to him, wowed by his pocket vest. Of course, we told them it was from L.L. Bean!

Consider ordering one size higher than your normal if you prefer lose clothing. Compared to my other clothing of same size designation, this one is snug for sure, but comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by zaddy Not good for my needs
Vest is very well made and seems very durable. Buttons on the pockets weren't functional for my needs,but are well done.

My husband loves the Traveler Vest I gave him for Father's Day. It is as described, a good weight, neutral color, and good fit. It has so many handy pockets, some zipped, some flapped, that he has the perfect place to store passport, money, camera, glasses, snacks, and even his slightly boxy diabetic test/meds kit. It even has tabs to snug the fit and is washable. Thanks, L.L.Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wayloh Travel ease
Needed a vest for travel and local trips to carry phones, sunglasses, keys, wallet, etc. this one was my choice over competition and at a substantial savings. Well made with variety of pockets to store most everything I usually carry when traveling. Just really like it! Note: I throw it on when making a local trip because of the pocket variety and it just looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PulpWorker Comfortable, convenient and perfect for travel.
I travel around the world and luggage and airports are an inconvenient reality of modern travel. The L.L. Bean Traveler Vest makes the journey much easier. The vest is lightweight and comfortable but well-made and with numerous pockets designed for carrying wallets, documents, cameras, and other trip essentials. I also use it for weekend hikes to carry maps, binoculars, cameras, etc. My only regret is waiting so long to buy it. The vest is a "must have" item for those who travel the world or those who take weekend hikes close to home.
