Rated 5 out of 5 by BigEyeHunter 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NHturkeyhunter 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%

Rated 5 out of 5 by bamathug17 very durable
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

I went to an Ol' Tom Dura-Lite Time & Motion Camo Strap Turkey Vest this Spring.
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable seat, cool in late season, acceptable game bag, water tight storage for necessities such as toilet paper or cell phones during rain.
Cons: Upper buckle/snap will pull on your neck when carrying a bird out of the woods, no open access pockets for items such as gloves, face masks, etc. I carry 4 pcs 3 1/2" extra shells in my vest, one slate and one striker, a small parcel of sandpaper, a breathable diaphram call case, gloves, mask, crow call, owl hooter, small parcel of toilet paper, brush trimming clippers, and 2 bottles of water, and 1 hen decoy in the game bag. That's many items, yet they shouldn't take up too much space. That's all I want for TN ridge running. However, if you have much more than that, you're going to run out of room very fast. It has many pockets, but you can only fill about 1/2 or 2/3 of them depending on what you carry. I give this vest 3 out of 5 stars. Nice ideas and design, but has room for improvement.
