"I have owned this vest for well over 10 years. I have been guiding upland birds in Montana for over 20 years and have worn this vest guiding an average of 55 days a year. Covering an average 6 to 10 miles per day while going through our coulees that consist of wild plum, chokecherries, rose hemp and snowberries and not one time over the years did the vest tear from these thorny bushes... I did finally wear holes in the pockets from carrying extra leads and shells. I found that a size larger than you usually wear is great for packing a lot of birds long distances when guiding. And when I got a chance to hunt on my own, it did not hamper the shouldering of the gun. The game bag with the front and back loading makes for easy access, and has held up over all the years. It's hard to retire"
