    I am looking for a good mesh shooting vest. I don't mind paying for a good one that will last. Has anyone tried a John Storm vest. I have the coat and I am wondering if the vest is just as good?

    I am open for suggestions!

    Thank you in advance!

    Chris

    Take a look at Cabelas. Their best grade leather trimmed vest is one I've used for the last couple of years and I like them a lot.

    The NRA sells a very good one for about $50.00. Check the NRA Store website.

    NOW, might be the right time to also check out Orvis as we enter their end of hunting season as they gear up for Spring.

    I have found my Browning vests to be good. My wife insists that the color of my vest be coordinated with the other cloths I am wearing. I have about 20 different colors of vests and I am not allowed to wear the same one twice at one shoot. I follow orders.

    Hi Chris,

    John is making mesh vests. I love mine but I'm partial, lol. They're all custom made and he will stand behind it just like with his coats.

    Feel free to call him for more information. 402-430-7612

    i have a browning and a cabelas vest. the cabelas is made of much heaver material and it has leather where my browning has cloth and if i remeber corretly, the cabelas was cheaper. I cut the reactor pad out of the browning and sewed it into the cabelas so I have the best of both.

    I just got an email from Orvis - they have 2 styles of warm weather vests on clearance for $70. I believe they call them "sporting clays" vests with full pads and mesh backs - one is ultra suede, the other has leather.

    I would like to have a MESH VEST,,but all that I have seen have over half material on them.. I want just mesh!! no pad, shell pockets can even be mesh if it is heavy enough to keep it's shape. I have a hard time shooting in a coat, need something super light!! Paul

    Chris, you've received a lot of good advise on here, and it should please you. I'm a lot like Pat Ireland on this one I have over (20) vests. I at one time was a ( PRO ) in another sport. My sponors (3) (that's all I needed) insisted on proper apparel, Which they payed for. Had Janet at CJ enterprises Made the type of apparel I needed than she would have been my supplier. There's NO need for a vote you've seen the REST now go with the BEST. No I don't work for CJ enterprises I've never meet Janets, I'm out here in the (land of FRUITS & NUTS ) Califorina
