Best Turkey Vests

You can tell a lot about a turkey hunter by the turkey vest they wear. The gear he or she carries, the organization of the vest, and how used and abused the vest appears are all signs of what kind of turkey hunter you’re dealing with. Outside your gun and calls, the turkey vest can be one of the greatest tools the turkey hunter can own. A good turkey vest will keep  you organized, comfortable, and hunting better than you’ve ever hunted before. Here’s a look at some of the best turkey vests on the market today.

Alps NWTF Impact Turkey Vest  ($119.99)

I really like what I see with the Impact Turkey Vest from Alps. Like several vests mentioned here, it’s got a sit-anywhere design allowing you to stay comfortable whether you’re sitting against a tree, or in the wide open without a back rest. The Impact Vest boasts numerous pockets for a variety of calls, a slate call pocket for two slate calls and three strikers, a silent box call pocket, five shotgun shell loops, and three diaphragm call pockets. A removable front pocket features a shoulder strap for run-and-gun style hunts and the seat conveniently folds away or completely detaches when not in use. The Impact Vest also includes a game bag on the back of the vest which features a pocket inside for decoy stakes. The soft, durable Brushed Tricot fabric reduces noise, and the popular camo patterns blend easily into your surroundings. The Impact vest provides hunters with all the convenience of a metal-frame vest while remaining lightweight and versatile.
