Technical design options include easy-clean game pockets, shell loops, and ambidextrous shooting pockets.

What Should I Look for in a Hunting Vest?

Look for the features that offer the most comfort and utility afield. For most hunters, that list will include a breathable design that adjusts for a custom fit and features plenty of pockets for storing supplies and game. Our upland vests come with all of these. If you prefer a minimalist strap-style vest, look for many of the same features along with over-layering versatility, making the vest more suitable for changing weather or varied climates. A traditional tweed shooting vest will come in the classic style appropriate for estate hunting; we offer elegant shooting vests updated with a Teflon coating for improved stain- and moisture resistance.
