If you’ve spent enough time in the field, you know why we’ve designed this vest. Inspired by the original Duxbak® Style 052 “Expert” Shell Vest, this carry-all garment is the complete tool for keeping your cartridges and all essential items well organized, secure, and accessible. The vest is designed specifically with the waterfowling sportsman in mind. 40 individual and uniquely designed shot-shell pockets hold 20, 16, or 12 gauge cartridges securely in place (20 on the front and 20 on the rear to balance the weight). The shell pockets are intended to serve the dual function of holding cartridges firm while in the field or transporting, while the outer canvas material is unattached from the elastic to allow for a secondary pocket to keep a few shells loose for quick and easy access. The vest adjusts horizontally to offer a range in size depending on body type and the amount of clothing worn. The length is proper and fit for purpose (not too short and not too long). There are five pockets, which includes a spacious rear pocket accessible from each side, two front interior pockets with entry from both sides (far left and right entrance serves as a hand rest pocket), and there two tower pockets located on the inside front. Grommets are positioned on principal pockets to serve as drains. D-rings are placed on each side to clip an outboard kill switch, carabiners, or accessories, and a D-ring is in place at the top rear for hanging. There are four shock-cord loops on the inside front at principal points to tether items. We’ve built this product to last, constructing it of 10-ounce British Millerain® wax cotton canvas, mil-spec webbing, and solid metal hardware. We installed bar-tacks at all major stress points for extra durability and long-life. Offered in the colors of dark tan, dark olive, and our distinct Duxbak Camo. Made in the U.S.A. by skilled workers, the Sportsman’s Shooting Vest is an exceptional product that is needed, useful, and will be something special to own and pass down.
