Have not got to use the turkey pro yet but I am going to like it. Feels good getting rid of some of the extra stuff I carried in my vest and only carrying what I will need. Great quality and craftsmanship.
I have been thru alot of vests searching for the perfect one cause I carry alot of gear and im very picky. Every scenario is different if you hunt several species of turkeys. I havent used this in the field yet but have packed it up. Box call pouch is large, fits multiple sizes and has adjust security strap. thats good. Slate calls fit common size such as a Primos but if you have large custom slate, it might be tight. Recommend changing pocket on slate call holder to flap w/magnet style for more security. Mesh is a little loose. Would add to both slate call lids also. Striker slots (2) should fit any striker, nice magnet flaps for security. 1st pocket has pockets for crow, woodpecker and/or owl calls no problem. Also has a couple zippered pockets that are roomy. Bino pocket is very roomy, should fit any size bino’s 12x and smaller but doesnt have bino lanyard like most cases these days, no biggie. Some 15x might even fit but shouldnt need that big. It fits my 10x32’s, gloves, mask and gobbler shaker NO problem. It also has a zippered pocket between the binos and your chest. Good place for cell phone, tags and bino cloth. Havent tried the exterior side shell loops yet. The shoulder straps and clips are compact and sturdy. Has a section of material that sits in the center of your back, recommend adding a pocket with a blaze orange flag tucked into it for safety when transporting your bird out, that is not a turn off for me. Pack seems to be well made, not flimsy thin material. The price does jump out at you, which matches or exceeds some the better built vests on the market. Whether you are looking to down size your gear or just need a small pack to carry a few items, this could be for you. All in all, pack is pretty well thought out. It will make you think about what you really need to take and puts it in a nice compact setup. Im looking forward to using it this year. I will review again after the season. Thx
My original purchase was intended to be a Father’s Day gift but the package was lost in transit. Geoff was excellent and prompt in helping to set up a case with FedEx and sending a replacement shipment. My husband loves the pack and can’t wait to use it!
Fantastic, great design, high quality, A+ overall experience...
The Turkey Pro 1 is exactly what I have been after in a run and gun style system. Great organization, pockets to fit everything I need for early morning sits, to all day adventures. I've never been a fan of a turkey vest, so I have always carried a small backpack / hip pouch that never really was the easiest to use in the heat of the moment. Having everything mounted on your chest is a game changer! Nice work OV Team! Love it! ~ TMD Outdoors
