I have a bunch of vests, my least favorite is the Ol' Tom and my favorite is the Primos Hobbler 2.

Surprised no one mentioned the Primos.

I got my Alps Outdoorz grand slam vest. Gotta say, I’m very excited about using it. I was gonna return it and go with the cabelas vest... but I opted on keeping the grand slam vest.

I have an Alps Grand Slam for slower days with less walking and more sitting.  Also tend to grab that vest if I plan on using decoy(s). 

For days with longer and more walks, or when the Wisconsin weather finally warms up, I go with either the RNG-200 or 300.  I like the minimalist design of the 200 and the thing I like over a satchel is the vest can take a bladder.  Personal preference but I much prefer the bladder over carrying a water bottle.

If you ever find one you really really like buy a lifetime supply.  The manufacturers always have to come up with a newer and better...which seldom is.

Solid advice... I actually bought another RNG-200 when I saw them on sale on Amazon for $30 this winter and might regret not buying a third one.

I've had the same Cabela's Tactical Tat'r (Original) with the 2 detachable leg pouches for probably 11 years now. Time for an upgrade. Reading this post has given me a lot of options to look into. I've been looking into the Alps Grand Slam Vest. I like the kickstand frame, but I'm concerned about the weight, which 6 lbs isn't that much until you have an all day hunt. A buddy of mine has one and said he absolutely loves it, but I suppose I have to consider all the options.

I just got the Alps super elite 4.0, really seems nice. I’ve been running the first super elite someone gave me years ago. Love it but it’s getting fragile!
Does anyone know when the first NWTF super elite was made?
I’ve was trying to find out how old mine is. It’s the only vest I’ve used.

I hear that!  I wished I had done that with my Limbhanger.

I've been  using a Cabela's Tat'r 2 for quite a while now...but reading this thread has got me trying to find an excuse to shell out some cash for one of those Run N Gun 300 deals.  I have to admit they look pretty nice!

Many moons ago Cabelas made a "Half vest" with the speed seat attached. Basically an oversized fanny pack/hip pack with the best seat in the industry attached to it.
That thing has been so good to me that its main color at this point is jelly head blood.

I use the Tenzing TP14 and that thing is a Cadillac.  Its a little bulky and heavy but that's mostly my fault cause I seem to just keep stuffing things in it.  I am wanting to get another vest that's a little lighter for days when I know I'm gonna do a lot of walking.
