    Ha! Photographer’s vests -do- scream “I have a gun.”

    😉

    The update about “illegal no-film” orders makes me think it was pretextual.

    I occasionally wonder what a cop would think about my SCott eVest (of the ginormous pocket count/capacity and the occasional ad campaign to drum up interest from the concealed-carry set). I don’t carry firearms, but I’ve had all KINDS of things stowed about my person from time to time, some of which probably bulged quite oddly

    Best out of context line I’ve read in a long time. 😉

    Why, thank you. Try the chicken surprise, and don’t forget to tip your waiter.

    As a side note – other than being useful as a gun burkha (at which job a simple nylon windbreaker with just the 2 hand pockets will do as good a job), the model of SEV I have is not all that good as someplace to store firearms and render them easily accessible (at least not the firearms I’ve tried). The outside pockets have too small an opening to easily get a full-size service pistol in and out of, and the big inner pocket is poorly placed for quick access, being intended for a tablet or small laptop computer. The insides of the pockets are too large to keep a holdout pistol from sliding around in (though it won’t slip out easily, either, the pockets’ retention features are pretty decent).

    I don’t have one of the (now-discontinued) Thor Alpha jackets which were specifically designed with pockets for the purpose (nor the female equivalent which is still in production). Nor have I bothered to try and get it to work, since, after all, I have no ability to take advantage of getting it to work.
