Ol' Tom® Dura-Lite™ Time & Motion® Camo Strap Turkey Vests for Men
Does not hold calls in rough terrain.
I hunt in the mountains of Colorado. This was my first turkey vest and I am pretty disappointed with this vest. Let's start with the straps. The waste and shoulder straps do not stay where you adjust them. The tend to float around as your moving through the forest. On top of that i lost a mask, pair of gloves, box call, two slate calls and a predator call. It does not hold these call well at all. It holds mouth calls a little to will so that it is very hard to beth them out. It has two slots for predator calls with a lanyard attached to the vest. One of these broke on my first time out dropping my crow call.
It dose have a lot of room in the back for decoys but if you don't have those in there righty you can drop your decoys.
It is not a pleasant hunt when you have to retrace your tracks over a mile to find your gear that fell out of the pieces of gear that is designed to hold it. I was skeptical going with this vest to begin with but as it was one of only only two options that the Bass Pro shop in Colorado had in stock days before turkey season, I had little choice.

Buy this vest
Just got back from my first trip into the woods with this vest. Do not waste any more time shopping vests because you have found the best one on the market. This vest has too many features to brag on them all, but the shotgun strap, magnetic pockets and seat, and convenient locator call attachments were some of my favorites. This vest is pretty open and breathes well when it is hot. The box call pockets are a little tight but it help them stay quiet while your sneaking through the woods.

Ol tom Vest
Best vest I ever owned just bought it this spring. It has all the pockets you would need and are very easy to get to and very comfortable as well. I bought it with the matching Ol Tom Dura Light pants and shirt all goes well in the turkey woods. The only thing that i had a Problem with is the locator call straps they seem to break very easy. if it wasn't for them it would be a 5 any day these straps that break are the little leather pieces that go around the locator call and keep it tight. witch i already have contacted Ol Tom about. bought since i bought the shirt it came with the two straps in the breast pockets so i am using those until i get a replacement. i would more then reconmend this vest to anyone fits well and feels great. Cant get a 5 on anything cause every product that any company puts out has it ups and downs and it different to everyone. But this product for me will see many seasons in the turkey woods and maybe a grand slam. Just a hair under 5 99%

i bought this vest after having several other brands, it fits my needs perfectly, i think it has ample room, I carry 2 pot calls, (1 slate, 1 glass) 4 strikers a few mouth calls, it has straps for my crow and owl calls, and i added two more straps for a gobble stick and a squealing hen call, the only way you wouldn't like this vest is if your the type hunter that is trying to carry a whole sporting goods store in there, i also carry to decoys and a ground blind in the back, i don't worry bout carrying extra shells, my gun holds all i need, And last but least the magnet on the but pad is very nice, not having to mess around with straps, so spend the money and be happy
