ALPS OutdoorZ has redesigned its popular Upland Game Vest X for 2023. The new Upland Game Vest X 2.0 offers more features, upgraded capacity and more customization options for improved functionality, fit and field performance.

Designed for optimal comfort for both male and female hunters, the new Upland Game Vest represents the apex hunting vest for early through late-season upland bird and small game hunting. The expandable and removable waist belt covers 26- to 62-inch waist sizes, and the wide and comfortable adjustable shoulder straps allow this vest to easily fit hunters of all sizes. The vest is lightweight at 3 pounds, 4 ounces. Despite its broad feature list, the vented back and waist belt ensures comfort in warm weather and high-exertion activity.

The vest's oversized game pocket has 16 inches of adjustment to accommodate heavy game loads and is easy to clean up. Incorporated onto the game pocket is a 17-inch rear storage compartment and a zippered valuables pocket, providing room to carry extra gear and needed supplies.

A MOLLE system integrated into the waist belt offers multiple attachment points for compatible items. Hunters or guides can customize the waist belt to their desired setup utilizing a combination of shell pockets and/or the new Outfitter Pockets. The included shell pockets feature a one-handed magnetic opening and closure and double as a gun rest. The Outfitter Pocket (sold separately, $29.99) is a 150-cubic-inch gear pocket with a non-slip gun rest lid that can replace the vest's included structured shell pockets. The Outfitter Pocket is also equipped with seven easy-access individual shell loops.

The Upland Game Vest X 2.0 has an MSRP of $199.99. For more information visit
