    Best vest in the market - 9/2/2014

    I've been a filson man for 30 years... But had to change... Orvis vest is better for 3 main reasons... 1. She'll capacity in the front pockets along with the open and close flex band ... This allows you to crawl on you belly and not loose your shells... 2. Over quality and construction is superior to filson. 3. Vented bag to keep the birds cooler...

    Good Vest - 1/15/2014

    Like the functionality and light weight. Only drawback are the straps, the longer it's worn they seem to stretch out a little. Hard to adjust them for that just right fit. Overall, a good vest.

    As advertised. Good fit and easily adjusted for heavy coat or just a shirt.

    Ill fitting - 12/31/2013

    Quality material and construction but ill fitting in my opinion. Got it for husband for Christmas per his request. Ordered xl-xxl according to size chart but it was too small. I tried on and just couldn't get straps adjusted to fit comfortably. Maybe just us since other reviewers love it.

    Great for bird hunting - 12/21/2013

    Comfortable fit, lightweight, with plenty of space for gear and an occasional bird. The real test will be next fall in southeast Montana.

    One of many purchases over the years. - 9/19/2013

    The shoulder straps were VERY difficult to adjust! There has got to be a more simple strap adjustment!

    I am a new to hunting and had previously borrowed some kit from my friend to hold shells and doves. Deciding to get more serious, I looked at what Orvis had to offer. I have used the vest twice now and love it. The only issue is figuring out the shoulder straps at first, but after that it rides well, the pouches on the back for birds and your water bottle are easy to access and the front pouches hold plenty of shells and any paperwork you need to carry. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in upland hunting.

    Light Weight and Convenient - 9/6/2013
    By: from Chanhassen, MN

    I have been very pleased with this product. I bought it as a light weight vest for hot days in the field. It has exceeded my expectations and has made early season hunting more enjoyable.

    Technical vest - 6/10/2013

    I would call this a technical vest. Lots of storage, very well made, but more complicated than many others I've looked at. Also, the orange mesh material is somewhat stiff and plastic in nature. It doesn't have the suppleness of a fabric like polyester. Frankly, it was unappealing to me and, ultimately, I returned it for something of a simpler design from another manufacturer. However, if you're going to be out in the field with your dog(s) and carrying a lot of stuff this may be exactly the vest you need.
