Rated 4 out of 5 by BernieD Great Vest with 2 flaws
My last review said that the Pad on the back did not come off. That is incorrect. It will come off at the very top. So, the only things that I don't like now is that the shell holder only holds 3 shells, and there is no pockets for your hands if you do not wear gloves. As far as the shells, you can use the other useless pouch on the left side for some, but I don"t think that the snap is going to work very long. It's just to loose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BernieD Just three flaws
Great vest but you should know 3 things. The pouch that holds the shells only holds 3, ( what's that about?). And the thick pad on the back, does not come off. If you want to also use this for small game, it's useless.
Also, there no pockets to put your hands? Sometimes I won't where gloves, but like to sit with my hands inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FloridaSportsman Best turkey vest bar none!
I looked at just about every turkey vest on the market before buying this one. I like the fit best of all. It feels right on the shoulders and the collar does not chafe your neck. There are pockets everywhere and in just the right places. The rear game bag is large enough to hold your decoys or other gear, as well as that 20lb gobbler. The seat cushion is comfortable and easily holds in place with magnets for run-and-gun or clips for a more permanent hold when you need it.
The only negative i have found with this vest is that the seat cushion is not detachable, if you want to use this vest for hunting other game or use as a camera vest. But that can be remedied with a pair of plastic clips and some thread. Otherwise it would a 5 star rating.
If you are looking for a great vest that will last and is comfortable. Forget about the price and buy this one. You won't be sorry....

Rated 5 out of 5 by swagman Needs a loop.
I love this vest. It is well thought out and very comfortable. The only complaint, it needs a loop at the collar for hanging and carrying. Something substantial, because it is heavy when fully loaded with calls and shells.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PAStreamgeek Almost Perfect.
I really like this vest, and for $75 on sale, it was a great deal. Only a couple small flaws keep it in the 4 star realm. First the positives: I love the drop down seat with clips for security when hiking and magnetic fasteners for running and gunning. Overall, the quality of the vest is very good, as you would expect from Bean. It has really organized my turkey hunting toys, and is very comfortable to wear in the woods.
Loads of room for storage in the expandable back pocket, but fairly trim fitting through the torso on me. I'm 6'0 200 lbs. and the M/L fits great in typical spring weather, but I couldn't layer much under it if temps get unseasonably cool. I suspect the XL/XXL would be bigger than I'd like. I wish they offered more than 2 sizes.
Pockets are well thought out, and the inside zippered pockets are well done, though the box call pocket is too small for my favorite call - it still needs to be carried on a belt holster. I have had a bit of trouble with the zipper coming apart at the bottom, but it hasn't been a major problem. The stowable orange collar is a nice touch, but the zippered pocket between your shoulder blades, where it is designed to be stored is not very convenient when hunting.
Overall, a solid deal from a great company. Keep 'em coming.

Turkey season is 24 days away and I cannot wait to go into the field with my new LLBean Turkey Vest. It has everything I need for a successful hunt and no need to carry a bulky pack.
