Taking its inspiration from our existing vest and using recommendations from Scott Linden of Wingshooting USA who is sponsored by Filson, the Pro Guide Strap Vest is a more technical vest for the serious upland bird hunter. The main body of the vest is built using our 12.5 oz. Oil-Finished Tin Cloth, our toughest version of oil-finished fabrics. The front pockets have an added adjustment snap so you can carry extra shells and also access the pockets while wearing gloves. The vest comes with a hydration feature that allows the hunter to carry water for himself and his dog. The vest also comes with back adjusters on the straps so that the hunter can adjust the vest to his individual build along with a waist strap that helps take the load off the shoulders. The game bag is zippered so you can unzip and pull it down for cleaning and the it is fully-lined with nylon. This vest is the most feature-packed vest offered by Filson and it will retail for $240 The Pro Guide Strap Vest will be available in August, 2013.
