This vest is the BEST of it's kind on the market! I highly recommend this to anyone searching for the perfect hunting vest. Easy to adjust to any size, plenty of pocket space to carry your necessities, and quite comfortable and lightweight.
I had high hopes for this vest and waited quite a while for it to come back in stock. Quality of materials is very good. I loved that it was very adjustable and I could customize how it fit my own body. Once adjusted to fit, it leaves all kinds of straps hanging. Wearing it I felt like I was going backpacking in Europe for a month. It's SO much vest! In the end I returned it.
I love the fit and over sized pockets. I especially love the water bottle pockets, one on each side that I can easily reach and totally hold my big hockey water bottles for the dogs. Unfortunately, the bird bag is woefully small. Stick 2 pheasants in there and you're maxed out!
The vest is one size fits all, by the time I had the straps tightened to fit me there were tag end straps hanging all over. The pockets are big, but not very secure. There were no bullet loops to keep ammo secure. The game pouch also didn’t
feel very secure. I felt like once I got all my stuff loaded it could easily fall out. I returned and will stick with my old vest for now.
I purchased this vest just before this hunting season started. I have been wearing it for the past couple months and I am really impressed by it. It is so incredibly adjustable that I was able to adjust it to make it fit absolutely perfectly. I have put some serious miles on with this vest prairie grouse hunting and I have never once had sore shoulders. All of the weight of the extra water I am carrying and birds is supported on my hips as it should be because I could adjust the vest to fit me properly. I am 5'10" and have never had a hunting vest that actually fit me before. I also love how light-weight the vest is. I can hardly feel it before I load it up with water/shells. My only complaint is that I don't like having loose shotgun shells in my pocket rather than a wider pocket with shotgun shell loops. But that feels like such a minor thing in the overall scheme of things that I am still giving this vest a 5-star rating.
