This complete system includes: Upland Hunting Vest, Hydration System, and Shell loops. Don't be fooled by our price as we offer an all-inclusive package, whereas many other sites sell the hydration system and shell loops separately as add-on options.
The Quilomene Hunting Vest was originally designed in 1993. The intent was to produce a bird hunting vest that would fulfill the water and cargo requirements of an upland bird hunter who might be out from several hours to all day. It is the original, and still the best hydration hunting vest available today! A 100 oz. water system (which actually holds 120 oz when full including dispensing tube), shelloops sized to fit your gauge shotgun, and nine cargo pockets (including a huge clothing pocket) give it the capacity to carry all that you might need for a long hunt. The fully adjustable waist belt-shoulder strap design allows you to carry most of the hunting vest weight on your waist. It balances the load maximizing your comfort and carrying capacity with a custom fit. The hunting vest is fully adjustable. Whether you are wearing shirt and pants in warm weather or layered up for colder weather this is truly an all-season hunting vest.
Shoulder Strap-Waist Belt Design Features:
- adjusts to provide a custom fit to hunters of all shapes and sizes.
- allows a hunter to comfortably carry ample water and gear in the nine cargo pockets to accommodate even the most demanding hunts.
- designed to carry the bulk of the hunting vest weight on the waist where it is more easily and comfortably carried.
- shoulder straps have two adjustments and the waist belt three that allow a hunter to get a truly custom and comfortable fit. - - when layering up in colder weather these adjustments allow a custom fit over heaver clothing making it the ideal all-season hunting vest.
Water is crucial for both dog and hunter, especially in dry weather and long hunts. Keeping your dog well hydrated pays big dividends and prevents the danger of losing a dog to dehydration.
