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.

I bought this vest to try out this year.

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.


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.
