  • This cargo vest was a gift for my 5 year old ‘paleontologist’. There are lots of metal loops to clip things onto (he has tools from other sets) and the wide assortment of pockets are roomy and varied. The oversized zipper seems durable enough, but he has a difficult time zipping it himself, as it’s a little stiff. Perhaps over time it will get smoother. We weren’t pleased with the quality of this company’s tool sets (binoculars, etc.) so instead got a set of the National Geographic binocs, flashlight, compass and magnifier. They fit perfectly in the pockets, and he has room to spare for other treasures. All in all, my son loves this and I’m happy with the fit (slightly large) and the durability. He’s actually wearing it to school today.


  • Bought this for my nephew’s birthday present. He loves Diego so I wanted to get him something he could use during his adventures. Lots of cool pockets and hooks for hanging things. The size was large on him–he’s a fairly petite 4 year old–but I think he’ll be able to wear and enjoy this for years to come.


  • The vest worked for what I needed and the kids loved it, but I was under the impression that it was an adjustable size: “The back of the vest features a one-size-fits-all adjustable strap.” There was no such strap, and the vest wouldn’t work for two of my kids.


  • I bought this vest for my grandson when he was 4 years old. It was big for him but he wanted to wear it still. He is now 5 years old and it fits good. He will be able to still wear it at age 6. He has 4 neighborhood friends they thought it was cool. I told them I will buy each of them one and they all got excited. I love to see boys be boys and love the simple things in life. I also bought the binocular, lantern and am buying the canteen.
