Bass Pro Shops new RedHead Striker Turkey Vest won a coveted Outdoor Life Great Buy Award, designating it as the highest performing vest tested by one of this country’s most trusted outdoor magazines.

A winning feature of the Striker Turkey Vest is the many pockets are so well organized that hunters can quickly and easily access their favorite calls and other gear without a lot of bird-bumping movement. It features specialized pockets for a box call, slates and strikers, mouth calls, and accessories.

The RedHead Striker Turkey Vest was rigorously tested by Outdoor Life editors who base the results on a series of scores each item receives across multiple categories.  Once the scores are tallied, the top product is deemed an Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award winner. Going one step further, Outdoor Life also considers the costs of the products to determine which offer the most bang for the buck. Products determined to offer the best value are named Great Buy Award winners.

Outdoor Life’s ratings give you the unbiased and accurate truth on outdoor gear,” said Andrew McKean, editor of Outdoor Life. “Products are thoroughly tested, and winning items earn the title based exclusively on the hard core data and scores.  So when we say a particular item is the best, you can take that to the bank.”

One of the reasons the RedHead Striker Turkey Vest came out on top is it offers so many features designed to keep hunters comfortable and effective in the field.  In addition to the many various-sized pockets, the vest features a magnetic fold-down seat padded with memory foam. This cushioned seat ups the comfort factor so hunters can sit still even on hard, rocky ground. It is also easy to deploy for those hunters who love to run and gun.

Plus, the adjustable, padded shoulder straps are ergonomically designed so turkey hunters can carry everything they need. The adjustable game bag in the back provides plenty of room for decoys while successful hunters can use it to tote a gobbler back to the truck.

“This vest is a great example of what the Bass Pro Shops RedHead brand is all about. It’s a high-quality, comfortable vest that meets hunters’ needs at a price they can afford,” said Jerry Martin, captain of the RedHead pro hunting team. “We are honored to have our brand recognized by Outdoor Life and to receive the Great Buy Award.”
