Seth Kanewrote a review of Black Diamond Access Hybrid Vest - Men's on November 17, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I think this vest missed the mark for the alpine climbing vest it is market as. The zippers are heavy and there's too many pockets to really be minimalist. By dropping all but the internal pockets (for skins, camera etc.) BD could lower the weight down without compromising warmth. I also feel like it runs a little large for layering (it doesn't fit well under the BD Dawn Patrol LT). Despite this however it does it's job, packs well and has held up to a fair amount of abuse while ice climbing.
