Hook & Barrel’s Josh Honeycutt recently went hunting—for wild turkey vests at the 2024 NWTF Convention.  Here are five that cover the spectrum from bare bones to plenty of bells and whistles. All are worthy of consideration if your collection of turkey gear needs an upgrade.

Best Vest for A Lot of Pockets: Primos Will Primos Turkey Vest

Primos Will Primos Turkey Vest

The Will Primos Turkey Vest by Primos is designed by Will Primos himself. It’s loaded with pockets to hold all your gear and keep it organized. The polyester material is lightweight but durable. It’s loaded with features, including straps that help grip a gun sling, lanyard D-rings, a removable 3-inch seat pad, and more. It comes in medium, large, extra-large, double extra-large, and triple extra-large. MSRP is $199.99.

Best Budget Vest: Hunters Specialties Undertaker Turkey Vest

Hunters Specialties Undertaker Turkey Vest

The Undertaker by Hunters Specialties just might be the best budget option available. This affordable vest has the pockets you need and is made from lightweight materials. It also has a great seat cushion, durable materials, and more. For the money, it’s a great buy. MSRP is $79.99.

Best Vest for Simplicity: Nomad Turkey Vest

Nomad’s Turkey Vest is loaded with features but offers a level of simplicity that just makes sense. This model has more than enough space for all your diaphragm, glass, slate, box, locator, and other calls. It has a removable 3-inch seat cushion, a rear game pouch, and more. It’s made from 100% polyester. MSRP is $150.

Best Lightweight Vest: Ol’ Tom Time & Motion Easy-Rider Turkey Vest

Ol’ Tom Time and Motion Easy-Rider Turkey Vest

The Time & Motion Easy-Rider Turkey Vest by Ol’ Tom is a great lightweight vest that maintains functionality despite sacrificed material and weight. Furthermore, its T-beam back pad is perfect for leaning against trees in the turkey woods. It even has a Magnattach padded rear cushion. It’s made from 300 denier rip-stop and has very nuanced pockets with specific purposes. The vest weighs a mere 2 pounds 10 ounces. MSRP is $129.99.

Best Vest with Kickstand: Alps Outdoorz Grand Slam Turkey Vest

Alps Outdoorz Grand Slam Turkey Vest

The Grand Slam Vest by Alps Outdoorz is an excellent choice and arguably features the best back-rest kickstand system on the market. The legs are, however, removable. Additional features include removable memory foam (for the seat), dedicated pocket systems, and more. MSRP is $189.99.
