Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vest Game pouch needs a bigger opening. The shell pocket is stretched at the corners with shells in the pocket. Not sure it will hold up long term

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mens Bird Vest The Ptarmigan vest is great except for one flaw...it does not have front loading. Have your designers go Pheasant hunting and try to put the birds in the back pouch...good luck. If it were redesigned with front loading for game entry I would purchase it even though I have purchased a new game vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trim look in a hunting vest. Wears well. The pockets expand to hold a entire box of shells. The game bag is adequate and there is pouch that will hold a water bottle or gloves.mi particularly like the meat construction. It is well ventilated and ideal to warm days. The orange is bright it also has two ring for external clip on of items. It fits well as an over garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ptarmigan Bird Vest The vest looks and feels great. The only thing I didn't care for was the velcro front pockets. I'd much rather have magnet pockets. I usually wear XL, (I'm 6'1") but the large fits perfectly. I would recommend buying a size smaller than your normal everyday size. The product runs a little large.
