Pradlann Upland Vest
I was very excited for this vest, it does the job but has lots of room for improvement. This is NOT a one size fits all. I am an xs, have the straps cinched all the way, and it is too big. The belt sags bad and my shoulders hurt after an hour walk from all the weight. The padding is also a little thick for my liking and affects gun mounting for sure. A more light weight option, and in sizes would be much more preferable. It would be very nice to have two waterbottle pouches as well and a clip on the front of the shoulder strap for the garmin. I wish I would’ve been able to try this on before purchasing, but unfortunately there is little options for women as it is, especially smaller ones as they can’t make the men’s sizes work.
A nice lightweight vest that allows for easy access into the back bird pouch. A TON of pockets to keep things separate and safe (licenses, etc.). Nothing I’ve purchased from Prois has been money wasted, proud to wear such a wonderful women’s brand.
The Pradlann vest has replaced my usual safety vest for all of my field days at work. As a Biologist and college professor of various field courses, this vest has become an integral piece of gear for my day-to-day work. It has enough blaze orange to keep me safe, plus TONS of pockets and pouches. First Aid kit, field journals, sample containers, snacks, water, GPS, lip balm, safe storage for keys - this vest has room for EVERYTHING. Dump the gear and it quickly transitions to a stellar upland hunting vest with big roomy game pocket and comfort fit! Well balanced, easy to wear. Only drawbacks for me are 1) that I wish the hip belt could be cinched tighter. At 5'7" and 140lbs, it ends up being really loose, even when snugged as tight as possible. Not a huge issue since I'm not carrying 100lbs of gear long-term, but a bit of a peeve. 2) loop and hook that holds the main back pouch closed occasionally comes undone in the brush - again, not a big problem, but a minor irritation that prevents a 5-star rate!
It works good in warmer weather. It would be nice to have 2 water bottle holders on each side of the back pouch for myself & my dog. The net compartments aren’t strong enough to keep a water bottle inside. I put my water bottles in my back pouch, but had to take them out when I harvested birds. I used the two front pockets for shells and gloves etc.
Also, the padding is thick at the shoulder area where you would raise & mount your gun. In my eyes, I think that could be thinner as not to throw your gun off when raised for a shot.
