Price Paid: $39.95
I own two other "travel vests," both of which are hot, heavy, and make me look like I'm just back from safari. The Venture II is totally opposite...it's very lightweight, slim-styled, and totally functional. I got the dark gray, which is much better suited for all-round use than khaki or olive. The pockets are extremely well designed, although I would prefer a couple more deep, zipped pockets on the inside of the vest for tickets, etc.

- Sierra Trading Post refers to the men's version
If you have stuff, the Columbia Men's Omni-Dry Venture Vest has a pocket to put it in. Three front pockets, two zippered chest pockets, and three velcro chest pockets hold all your gear for fly fishing or photography outings. The mesh-lined vest wicks moisture on humid hikes through the cloud forest, and dries quickly if you get caught in an afternoon shower. A cinch cord at the waist seals out wind and bugs, and a small D-ring on the chest clips on a camera.
