    Peregrine Field Gear is proud to introduce Version 2.0 of the Trekker Dog Handler's Vest. We've incorporated our many years of upland hunting experience and the comments and suggestions of numerous other avid hunters and dog handlers to bring you this premium upland hunting vest. We also ran this vest through extensive field testing with numerous hard core hunters to make sure it would stand up to the challenges of upland hunting.

    New Updates for 2018 include:

    • Lighter weight, yet rugged water repellent fabric with ballistic-grade nylon thread
    • Ergonomic shell pockets with magnetic flaps
    • Removable, closed-bottom neoprene shell loops (12, 20 or 28 ga)
    • Integrated waist belt to support game pouch
    • 1-way brass YKK zipper

    First and foremost, we designed this vest so that those large roosters can actually be loaded from the front quickly and easily! The front opening of the game pouch has a snap expansion that provides a huge 14+" opening for loading big birds.

    Second, this vest was designed with the dog handler in mind. The Velcro transmitter pockets on the chest lay flat when empty, but expand to accommodate virtually every make and model of e-collar transmitter. The elastic restrainer loop is easily secured around the antenna of larger remotes to prevent them from falling out when you bend over. The mesh front on the pockets provides easier identification of transmitter buttons and D-rings next to the pockets provide attachment points for lanyards. In addition, two reinforced water bottle holders (with drain holes) means that you can carry enough water for you and your four legged friend.

    Third, the "Trekker" upland vest gets its name because in addition to the dual water bottle holders, it also has a rear rucksack for carrying your first aid kit or your lunch, or for stowing those extra layers later in the day when things are warming up.

    Fourth, like all shooting apparel that we produce, the Trekker vest has an inside pocket under each shooting pad that accepts the revolutionary ShockEater® recoil pad. So, now you can use those heavy high brass loads and not worry about bruising your shoulder in the process.

    And if that's not enough, we also engineered in some other great features including magnetic pocket flaps, a zippered bottom on the shell pockets (for easy emptying and clean out), hand warmer pockets, internal accessories pockets, expandable rear game pouch and a zippered game pouch.

    Finally, as with all products made by Peregrine Outdoor Products, this vest comes with a "no questions asked" Lifetime Guarantee. So enjoy those long hikes through fields, briars, fence rows and thickets knowing that Peregrine has your back. Happy hunting.


    Note: Vest chest measurements are intentionally larger than normal to accommodate cold weather clothing.

    Well I have had a chance to use the vest now for a season. I still like it even though it is almost twice what I have paid for other vests. It is made of high quality material that is durable and is suited to the heavy use i put it through. I like the design it has a lot of pockets all in the right places and they are easy to access. The shell pockets elastic shell holders are tight and do a good job of holding my 20 gauge shells in place. I like the water bottle holders on each side of the vest and they are big enough for a bigger sized water bottle. I really like two things about the shell pockets, they have magnets in the flap that comes down over the pocket to keep it closed and they have full zippers in the bottom that make it easy to clean the weed seeds, grass and other trash out of the pockets. The only con to this jacket is that that you have to make sure the zippers stay closed on the bottom of the shell pockets or if you have loose shells you will loose them. I check the zippers frequently when hunting and they are staying shut, I think that the one time I lost shells may have been because I forgot to zip them shut after cleaning. I would recommend this vest even at this price. I could see it lasting 5 or 6 seasons easy and I hunt more than the average hunter.

    I received the product; the features and the benefits they provide are all there as advertised. I haven't had the opportunity to field test the vest but feel certain it is going to come through with flying colors. The real reason for the high rating is the level of service provided to me. I ordered the wrong size. I called the Peregrine and left a message. I received a call back and spoke to a real person. They shipped the replacement to me before they even received my return. That's a level of service you don't see in today's world. I highly recommend not only the products but the company itself.

    Too heavy but lots of practical features

    Cons:
    Vest is very weighty. Made of durable but heavy materials so with lots of features and multiple layers of fabric the result is a vest that you won’t wear on mild or warm hunting days. Also, size, especially girth, is not adjustable. That limits thickness of layers you can wear under vest.

    Last criticism is the nice metal two way zipper on the vest I received is extremely difficult to start. I couldn’t get it to work even after several applications of zipper wax. It finally started after much fidgeting and I considered a return but decided against it. I hope annoying, balky zipper, especially with cold hands or gloves, won’t discourage my use of this otherwise very well constructed and heavy duty upland vest.

    <p>A few days out from a hunt in Montana so no field info, I am 6" 250 lbs, I ordered the 2X , it fits great, very easy/smooth to mount my gun which is awesome over my previous vest which had straps. Magnetic pockets seem great and east access to your game pouch. The only comment I have is if you purchase the Quick shot shot gun holster it seems a little long but if you centre the holstered and use the bottom zipper to open the bottom of the vest it seems too work great. I am looking forward to testing it out with a 9 day Pheasant hunting trip to one of my favourite places in the world.</p>
