Good but not great
I had been looking for an adequate vest for some time when I stumbled on this particular vest in a Bass Pro Shop near Charlotte, NC. It was reasonably priced compared to others that I had seen, so I bought it. Most of the time I only use it for sporting clays to hold my ammunition, for which it is very well suited. I have been able to fit about 2-3 boxes of 25 shells each in the vest comfortably. There is also a large pouch in the back that can hold small game with moderate comfort. The only problem I have had with it is the straps. When aiming my shotgun the adjusters on the straps sometimes get in the way. This problem can be corrected by either taking the vest off when shooting, or by moving the strap out of the way. Overall it is a very good product and I would recommend it to the average hunter or sportsman.

adequate needs some revisions
I bought this bag as a replacement for a similar type bag that I had used for 15 yrs. This bag is comfortable, has ample space for birds and shells in the pockets. No shell loops, or built in space for a water bottle, or d ring or loop for electronics. I think it needs two straps across the front, one at the pocket level and one about 6 inches higher. By doing this the shoulder straps will not slip off, which I find myself dealing with too often. The bag is rugged enough and I like the overall looks of the bag, just a few nagging issues.

Complete review is pending. Bought the vest for a quail hunt. When I went to put the shells in the front left pocket on the first day of the hunt, 1/2 of the snap came off in my hand. I used the vest for the hunt. The vest delivered as advertised. It fits well and is made of a seemingly rugged (snaps excluded) material). I am going to take it back to BPS for exchange. If the customer serive experience is acceptable, I will adjust the review accordingly.
