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 got a combo vest /jacket with zip off sleeves and seat combo last year made by whitewater at bps for 69 bucks the other matching stuff hat and face mask and gloves for it from the catalog in the leafy cut pattern stuff they didnt have that stuff on the floor at the time, then sewed some more green stuff onto it all cause it needed some more green in the blend, was actually kinda fun sewing random strips of green materials on it in the evenings watching tv

everything came to around 125 total
the vest/jacket seat combo is probably one of the better things for the money i ever bought for myself at bps actually.

i look like sigmund the sea monster with it all on in the woodline \:D \:D \:D

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 wear a Buck Lick vest, and have for as long as long as they have been on the market. I personally can't imagine anything better. The quality of the vest is awful though, and I have to buy a new one every year.

Bass Pro sells 2 styles, one built like a true vest and one built like a strap vest. I wear the strap variety, and one big thing for me is the game bag is big enough to put a bird in. I would rather over the sholder them, but hunting 4 or 5 miles from the vehicle in rough Mtn. terrain makes that brutal, so I stuff them and the buck lick does the job perfectly.
