RedHead Striker Turkey Vests for Men
Good vest...could be great
I shopped around quite a bit and decided on this vest. I like the design. Seat is pretty comfortable, organizers are great and the extra padding in the straps and back are a real nice touch. The only set-back is a pretty serious one though. When I got my vest in the mail, the first time I opened a button is broke off. I sent it back and got a new one no problem, but I can see where the buttons on the vest I have know are starting to wear. The fabric on this vest is super soft, nice and quiet and the buttons are nice and heavy duty, unfortunately those two don't mix. Worth $60 I'd have to say so.

So far, so good
I recently went to Bass Pro looking for a vest. I tried on and carefully considered every vest in the store. Unfortunately all they had in stock were the Ol' Tom and Red Head brands.
I'll tell you know, the Ol Tom vests didn't seem worth the money. Very cheap zippers, cheap clasps.
I like the waterproof zippers on the "BuckTick" redhead vest BUT, the fold down seat folded inside the vest and was not very comfortable. The BuckTick was also heavier.
This vest is not as fancy, but it is lighter than the bucktick; which is important in the April heat. The seat is comfortable, has snaps and magnets to hold it up. It's cheaper to boot!

Fabric will rip.
I have not been in the woods yet with this vest and I have already ripped a snap off despite reading reviews that they rip off easily. The snaps are very secure but the fabric on this vest is easily ripped. There are other reviews which echo this sentiment so it is probably better to get a sturdy vest for more money. This one is unlikely to last a season.
I do like the organization of the vest and the real tree camo. If it wouldn't rip it would be 5/5 for me.

So far so good
Just purchased, impressed with quality and the amount of storage. loaded it up for first trip and it was very comfortable with all my gear. Also, fold up seat was great! Only thing I'd change is magnets for seat instead of snaps.
