    Plus 1 for Shoot the Moon. Spend the extra and get one custom made, you won't regret it. HJH

    There was a thread on here recently about someone that made vests in the USA. They looked good, and appeared to be gaberdine

    You can get John Storm's custom tailored to you. You can't buy a nicer vest. Bill

    Whit size are you looking for? I have a really nice Remington vest made by Chimere in Naples, FL, I believe. Vest is new, hanging in the closet. The vest does have the beige mesh back and a full length leather international pad down the right side. It is an XL I bought a couple of years ago and meant to thin down to fit in it. Its for sale, so you see how that worked out.

    I also have a couple USA made Bob Allen vests if you are interested.

    Click the link above.

    Chuck's phone number is 424.263.2431

    Plessinger Sportswear is owned and operated by Chuck Dietl, former USA Shooting resident athlete. He's been doing this a long time and knows his stuff.

    You can buy a vest from other domestic makers but I know who makes mine and Chuck's vests are the BEST. High quality, attention to detail, the best materials - they are PERFECT.

    And he's a nice guy too.

    If you want to see pictures of his vests then they are here - http://www.deadtargetschool.com/How%20to%20Place%20ISSF%20Skeet%20Tape.pdf

    The red vest is a Chuck Dietl vest. Look at the leather pad - you will notice the pattern of stitching - this is not style - this is FUNCTION. The leather pad is stitched in a certain way to provide longevity and comfort. I wish more trap shooters would use vests instead of pouches - a properly fit custom vest is a joy to wear and an essential piece of equipment.

    Before someone else points it out, I was'nt a resident athlete though I spent enough time there when I lived in Colorado they may have thought I was. In spite of that my wife still likes me.

    Thank you all for your kind words of recommendation.
