Just returned from a field test , I was a little disapointed in a couple of features of the vest when trying it on in the house and useing some of its features but now after a morning hunt i am very happy with the vest and have nothing but good things to say to the guys @ FoxPro about this long awaited product .
here is the run down .
the fit is awsome it is fully adjustable so ill be suprised if anyone complains about fit issues .
The breast strap is a great touch as it keeps the vest from spreading apart at the top while riding a 4 wheeler or walking rough ground .
There are so many compartments to store and carry things i dont think anyone will be asking for more . one of the best touches i liked is the compartments just inside the vest kinda like a liner with pouches , its the perfect spot for head net and gloves and as with all the compartments you wont have to worry about sompthing falling out ( unless YOU dont put it all the way in)
deployment of any item stashed in the many hidey holes in the vest is easily done and done quietly . The remote pouch is awsome it has a magnetic flip cover and holds the remote like a vise , you WILL NOT lose your remote from this holder .
it sits at a great angle so it pulls out like a gun from a cross draw holster, quick and silent .
there is a great pouch for AR clips and xtra ammo as well as range finders or binos , Xtra calls etc .
The pouch for the caller even has room for a CS24. ( i prefer to carry mine ).
The real seller for me is the ruberised coating on the shoulder straps . In one fell swoop FoxPro has ended my life long problem of my rifle sliding off my shoulder , NO MORE it stays put, Huge thank you to them for that,WOW what a diffrence.
If for no other reason i would wear it just for that .
In the past i tried all types of slings and even my Claw sling would slide off my shoulder , riding a 4 wheeler with a rifle over your shoulder over rough ground was an act of futility , the vest stopped all that i am amazed.
Comfort ? I didnt even know i was wearing it , nice and cool as well , 60 degrees when i started this morning and 77 now , really didnt make a diffrence in my body temp .
well balanced as well .In and out of the truck , no problem at all , seat belt is not an issue .
The butt pad is awsome , nice and thick and comfy , I even set up on top of some of that big sharp scab rock and didnt feel a thing thru the pad .
I had a real problem with the location of the clips that hold and release the butt pad when you finish a stand, they are a little far back and i had a difficult time reaching them but after i did it a few times it became much easier, kinda like riding a bike??
All in all its a great tool for a caller , I am just so happy its finally available.
This is one accessory i think all predator callers should own , im sure it will help prevent things being lost or misplaced while hunting , Oh yeah thats another great thing i like about it , you just leave all your stuff in it when you get home and hang it up with all your other jackets etc. and the next time you gear up to go calling its all right there waiting for you.
Sweet product , Thanks FoxPro I love it . Jerry
