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:

Read the reviews from others who have used it.

The Ol' Tom Vestless Mesh Back Shirt:

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.

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.
