  1. I also have State Farm and it is so reasonable for no fault and no deductible! Pro is not even twice the non pro premium so still reasonable if you are pro, not I. Many good travel tips. To remove EOS 5D or Nikon D800 uncomfortable straps less obvious. Can’t believe you don’t like photo vests:) .
