Why You Need A Safari Vest

When it comes to wardrobe functionality, a safari vest is right on the money. Believe us! Take what you associate safari vests with and throw it out the window. You don’t need to be one with the giraffes on an African safari to need this outfit addition – Just an open mind and maybe some style flexibility. Humvee Adventure Gear is not just responsible for military-grade optics, but also U.S. force approved safari vests. They are available in both black and khaki, with a variety of vests ranging in thickness and coverage. If these bad boys are approved by our armed forces for the rigors of battle, they are 100% approved for the activities below.

Field Trips

Maybe you’re responsible for a class of second graders on a field trip to the zoo or just your own on a trip to Disneyland, but regardless you definitely need a safari vest. Accessibility to your trip essentials is of most importance and there is no time for you to spend time rummaging through a backpack for a band-aid. With eight to ten pockets available, depending on the style you choose, you’ll be able to keep anything you might need handy, including (but not limited to): first-aid needs, sunscreen, a notebook, and a portable charger.


Carrying anything on a hike can be a huge bummer. Whether it be your water bottle, a Humvee 10×25 monocular, or a first-aid kit, no one wants to hold things as they climb through the wilderness. But with a safari vest, you can easily rid yourself of this issue. You won’t have to set your essentials down to get a photo of the sunset or to use your binoculars to get a clearer view of what’s down the road. A Humvee safari vest encourages momentum and moving forward.


When you have one, two, or twelve— they come with a variety of needs. Sticky hands? Wet wipes. Too fussy? A pacifier. Hungry? You get the idea. Free up your hands from extra baggage by investing in a safari vest. You never know when you’re going to have your hands (literally) full and will want to have full range of motion to care of any messy situation.


While many of those who travel on safaris are wildlife photographers who wear safari vests— why not translate that function to both amateur and professional photographers all over? Eliminate the weight of a cross body camera bag that can prohibit you from getting the best shots. Humvee vests are secure enough to ensure the safety of additional lenses or batteries you may need to take with you on your next adventure.


Safari vests are a necessity for your traveling needs. By strapping the things you need to your person, you can accomplish more without a bulky backpack that constantly needs to be put down, rummaged through, or carried at least once by everyone in your family. The vest itself is light enough that it won’t weigh you down during the day and keep you from having a great time on your vacation.

Outfit Accessory

The pros outweigh the cons when it comes to adding a safari vest to your everyday wardrobe. When it’s not cold enough to wear an overcoat, but too cold to leave the house without an extra layer— a safari vest can solve your dilemma right away. If you’re wearing an outfit with little pocket space or none at all, a Humvee vest can save you from grudgingly bringing along a purse or larger coat.

Purse Replacement

Are you in the market for a purse? Or a new “man bag?” A safari vest is light, but still can hold everything you might need during the day. By investing in a safari vest, you never have to worry again about leaving your purse in your car or the possibility of it getting stolen anytime you set it down. Accessing your wallet during checkout is easier than ever now that you don’t have to dig through your purse looking for your debit card.

You no longer need to worry about forgetting something, because it’s literally on you and because you can’t stuff things you don’t need into a normal handbag, you’re more likely to only bring things you absolutely need when you have it hanging off your body. Humvee safari vests are lightweight and 100% cotton, which translate to being a breathable, functional addition for any occasion!
