I'm thinking of getting a new one. I like the one I got. I'm just thinking about a new one. I want one with a good organizational setup. Also, I don't care for the ones that have pockets that don't have some kind of closer on them. Anyone got the one of the bass pro one's where the back kinda holds itself up or whatever. How are they?

I bought this one from Bass Pro: Redhead 3D Evolution turkey vest for men last spring @ $60. I love it, planty of storage, not all big and bulky, and comes in a leafy type texture. I chose that model so that more of my leafy suit to would show through (what's the use of wearing a leafy suit top if a vest just covers it up) and it lets more are flow around. Has slat call & striker pocket, 2 large zipper pouch pockets on the inside, 1 large zipper pocket on the outside with a smaller zipper pocket on it that has a shell holder inside. Has a small mesh pocket to place your diaphram call case inside. Also has a pouch with draw cord to store a box call in.

I carry: (1) box call, (2) slate type calls, (3) strikers, (5) extra shotgun shells, (1) gobbler call, (2) pairs of lightweight gloves, (2) different face masks, (1) emergency whistle, (1) 1/2 roll of TP, (1) small First Aid kit, (1) small flashlight, (1) small can of bug spray, (1) owl call (1) crow call, (1) small compass and (1-3) diaphram calls

i got one of these a few years ago and BY FAR the best thing I own for turkey hunting. It is so comfortable its not even fair, heck you dont even need a tree to get on in order to use it.

i cant tell you how many times i had to just DROP to the ground when i found out a bird was close, with this thing it doenst matter

well seems the link isnt working at the moment so i will try to find it somewhere else. I bought it up in Clarksville a few years ago. It has medal support for the back and sort a built in chair with no legs just a pad that is moveable. i will keep looking.

I have one I ordered from Cabela's about 3-4 year ago that was made by Little Big Horn Oudoors that has the solid metal seat frame. Is that the one you are talking about? I absoulutely love mine also, and was thinking of buying another one to have when this one wears out (nothing wrong with it yet!), but I cannot find one and can't get a link to the company.

yup one and the same. I have had mine for about 5 years and it is till going strong. I also am looking for JUST IN CASE because they are hard to find now for some reason. Man they open up a whole new world with turkey hunting. I will keep looking but if you find somewhere let me know where at. I bought mine 5 years ago for $80 and i think the last time i saw one they are still the same price

I bought the Red Head high back turkey lounger, plenty of places for stuff and you can set anywhere with the folding seat. Super nice for the price, I think they are on sale at BPS for $59 this week.

I've been thru a few "turkey" vests, and had what some would consider THE "BEST", plus some "seat cushions" that cost more than some vests. But last year, and the year before, I kept detaching the seat cushions, and/or leaving them in the truck. Then more and more, I found myself leaving the turkey vest as well.

Why?

Because I found a "turkey shirt" and a "turkey lounger" seat combo thats lighter, much cooler in hot weather, and unbelievably more comfortable even for long sits. Where this "system" really shines is when you don't have a big tree to lean against, such as just sitting in some weeds or briars --- the stable "lounger" with it's back support helps keep you still, whereas you can't help but move your body otherwise (on long sits) without this back support.

Here's the "turkey lounger" seat:
http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templa...rset=ISO-8859-1
Read the reviews from others who have used it.

The Ol' Tom Vestless Mesh Back Shirt:
http://www.wingsupply.com/shop/Scripts/prodViewSKU.asp?SKU=OT133

Nothing wrong with a good turkey vest, but I've found this "turkey" shirt and lounger better for me.

Should add I wear 6-pocket pants (large thigh side pockets), so between the pants and the shirt, usually have room for everything I want to carry for a half-day hunt. If I'm not coming back to the truck within a few hours, I'll add a fanny pack (as well as if rain gear or extra clothing might be needed).

Some have asked, "So, how do you carry out your turkey without a turkey vest?"

Most days, that is not a problem.
But on the days when I have a long walk back with a big Tom,
here's the trick:
A little gizmo I carry . . . . . in my shirt pocket \:\)

I bought this vest to try out this year.
http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?id=0037688&type=pod
As far as organization and comfort I feel like it is the best on the market. I do have the bucklick creek vest with the built in stadium seat which I love but like CH said the vest itself isnt worth a dime for storage purposes other that the large game bag. You can definitely hunker down anywhere with the bucklick creek vest but I would rather give comfort and have better storage/organization and get something a little less cumbersome. The new vest also fits more snug and I think it will be ideal for belly crawling or stalking. I am going to carry the gobbler lounger along with me so I think between the new vest and the lounger I will be set.

Jason,
I believe that's the exact vest I was last using.
It's a nice turkey vest, "cooler" and quieter than most, and one of the most comfortable cushions that exists. Only thing I didn't like about it was the quick attachable/detachable game bag --- since it was totally fluorescent orange, could not use it for any purpose other than carrying out a turkey. Does yours have the "packed away" orange game bag? Really a neat vest, but I found myself leaving it in the truck, since the "turkey" shirt sufficed, and the cushion wasn't as comfortable as that turkey lounger.

Once I got a turkey "lounger", I stopped carrying the cushion with the vest. Then the turkey shirt replaced the vest.

Next time I see you, ask to look at my turkey lounger.
I've found a better, quicker, quieter way of carrying it, using a "catclaw" strap and a quick detachable belt (attached to the lounger). Otherwise, might just stick in in the game bag of your turkey vest. \:\)

I bought one of those loungers here back while they were on sale. Never have used it hunting yet. It seemed pretty comfortable but it also seem kinda big and bulky to lug around.

Offset by not carrying a cushion and turkey vest full of "stuff". \:\)

If you sit more than you walk, it's worth its weight in gold. Carry it strapped vertically to your back (cut off the velcro and the strap that comes with it) by improvising with a catclaw tree-stand strap and a quick-release waist belt.

I was going to but the Mossy Oak super elite III this past weekend and they were sold out, so I bought the Primos Gobbler. Lots of storage and a really thick butt pad. Haven't used it yet, so i don't have a clue if its worth a crap or not.
