ALPS OutdoorZ Introduces New Impact Turkey Vest

posted on January 17, 2018

ALPS OutdoorZ and the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) have teamed up to bring a line of turkey hunting gear including vests and pack systems, blinds, gun cases and furniture. For 2018, they have expanded their line to include the Impact Vest.

Featuring multiple pockets and a built-in folding seat that can be completely disconnected from the rig, the new Impact Vest, is capable of holding two slate calls with three strikers, three diaphragm calls, a silent box call, and includes five shotgun shell loops to hold your favorite turkey loads.

The Impact Vest has a removable front pocket with a shoulder strap for run-and-gun type hunts, along with a game bag the back of the vest for when you drop your tom. The vest’s durable brushed tricot fabric mitigates noise, making methodical movement less noticeable to wary gobblers.

With an MSRP of $109, the new Impact Vest is available in Mossy Oak Obsession and Mossy Oak Bottomland camo patterns.
