Well dove season is rapidly approaching and squirrel season is about to heat up and my older-than-I-am hunting vest has finally completely disintegrated. I'm having a H*ll of a time finding one like it. Most all the ones I can find only have a few loops on them and they're inside the pockets. I like my shells more accessible than that.

Does anybody know where I can find one like the old RedHead ones with the rows of shell holders on the front?

Thanks, Eley

+1 on checking eBay. One would think not but they are there. A time for a good selection is closer to Halloween. People sell hunting clothing..hunting jackets and hunting vests for costumes and the selection is quite good.... Who would have guessed !

I replaced a 25 year old upland coat and vest last year and ended up with a Pella strap vest and an LL Bean Gore-Tex jacket. I didn't see many vests with external loops during my search. I really like the strap vest as it has a space for hydration pack for the dog and easy front load game bag and I can carry two boxes of shells in the pockets. The support belt and strap adjustments let me adjust the load I'm carrying which makes a lot of difference on those long walks in South Dakota. Pella is an American company. Good luck and good hunting!

I guess this is a bit late but I was over at the NRA WebSite just now ordering a vest and I see a few hunting type vests there.

Have a look and see if there's something there you can use.

I hope so anyway, and good luck and I hope you get something.
