Just this year, i replaced my old vest with a new one. First i bought an Alpz Grand Slam and to be honest, i didn't like it. Felt too big (bulky) and i was never going to use all the storage it had. Plus i never used the game bag on my old vest, i just always pack my gobblers out over the shoulder. I then bough a Knight and Hale RNG-300 and this vest is literally perfect for me. I can't find one single thing to gripe about. I love that it has a backpack on the back instead of a game bag. It also has 10 independent adjustment points, so you can make it fit perfectly. I'm probably going to buy another one after season as a back up.

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 would like this type. wish they still made it.

I have now walked about 10 miles in my tatr.  So far, so good.  I like how it distributes the weight of my gear.  Much more comfortable and plenty of pockets compared to my old vest.  I have a small, very green vest that I use late season when it is hot, but I doubt I will ever pull it out.  Will see how it holds up.

X2 love mine
I don't have a favorite.  Every vest I try has something I love about it AND something I hate about it.

Well made vest that ACTUALLY can curry a dead Tom as well as my Dana Design's Long Bed back pack.
I have had some great HUNTING vests including my current one but never one that could carry a 20-24lb Tom comfortably.

And NEVER buy a vest that doesn't have a chest strap, learned that one the hard way with my first vest.

I have used a Primos Gobbler vest in bottomland for the past 15 years or so. Plenty of room for everything, and I like how the seat has a magnet to attach it when I flip it up to move.
