    I am surprised that so many shooting vests have dark shoulders. That makes them absorb and retain a LOT of heat. Gotta wonder if anyone makes a mesh vest with white or reflective shoulders. Larry

    I bought mine from Cabela's. It's Tan and is easy to wear in the hot Florida summer heat.

    Rooster Sporing Arms in Tucson makes a Verano Linen Vest. they have both a tan and a blue color.

    These were modeled after the old linen vests the Winchester Reps wore in the 50's and 60's.

    Contact Jaye Wells from their website: www.roostersporting.com


    This is the guy who started the original Wild Hare company and then sold it.

    Bob: do you have one of these linen vests? Does it have a back pocket to store empty hulls?
