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.
This is an absolutely beautiful and well made vest but it needs one modification. The shoulder straps are too thick which causes your gun stock to slide off the strap and out of the shoulder pocket and onto your shoulder. This means bruises and/or missed birds! So, great vest for anything but hunting…. Hope Prois makes a new version with thinner straps!
I love this vest. The only downfall is I can't tighten the straps quite enough - it won't be a problem when I have a coat on, but for warmer hunts, it's pretty loose.
So I love this vest, I love everything about it except the pocket were I keep my ammo doesn’t stay clipped closed one one pocket seems it was put on incorrectly, so when I get back from bird hunting I’m hoping prois will replace my vest otherwise than that I love it.update …so prois is replacing my vest and I will receive it tomorrow.I’ll update then
This vest is extremely versitile! I am in the field year-round, not hunting, but for the work that I do for an environmental nonprofit doing habitat restoration. This vest lets me move freely while carrying everything I need with room to spare, and comfortably!
