Camo Patterns: Blend in with Nature

The Longbeard Elite Strap Vest is available in four of Mossy Oak's most effective camouflage patterns: Obsession, Greenleaf, Bottomland, and Original Bottomland. These patterns are designed using true-to-nature elements, such as tree limbs, pine and oak foliage, and shadows. The lifelike color tones perfectly match the turkey woods in spring and early fall, allowing you to blend in seamlessly and get closer to those elusive birds. By choosing the right camo pattern for your hunting environment, you'll increase your chances of bagging that trophy gobbler.

Comfort & Support: Hunt All Day

When you're out in the field, comfort is crucial. The Longbeard Elite Strap Vest offers a number of features to ensure you can hunt comfortably all day long. The 2" dense foam detachable cushion provides a comfortable seat with a camo top and vinyl bottom, making those long hours in the blind more bearable. Upper spine and back foam padding offer additional support while you're on the move or sitting for extended periods.

The adjustable padded shoulder straps distribute the vest's weight evenly, reducing strain on your shoulders and back. In addition, the quick-attach seat buckles allow you to secure the seat to either side for easy reach while you're on the move.

Storage & Organization: Keep Your Gear Close

The Longbeard Elite Strap Vest offers a wide variety of pockets designed specifically for turkey hunting gear. You'll find a box call pocket with a drawcord adjustment tensioner and swivel fastener flap, dual striker pocket with hook and loop tape flap, and two pot call pockets with outer mesh pockets. These specialized pockets ensure your calls are easily accessible when you need them most.

Beyond call storage, the vest features two upper large zippered pouch pockets, a lower right pocket with five shell loops, and a lower left Thermacell® zippered pocket with a screen, perfect for keeping those pesky bugs at bay. You'll also find two quick access upper mesh slip pockets, two large inner pouch zippered pockets, and a quick access left zippered pocket for your phone, license, or other essentials. With all these pockets, you'll have ample space for everything you need during your hunt.

One of my favorite features is the large blood-proof game bag with side zippers and an adjustable top buckle strap. This provides ample room for storing both a half-strut jake and a hen decoy, ensuring that you're always prepared for any situation in the field.

Safety First: Be Seen and Protected

While blending in is essential for turkey hunting, it's also important to be seen by other hunters for your own safety. The Longbeard Elite Strap Vest comes equipped with an orange safety flag and storage pouch, allowing you to signal your presence when necessary. Simply attach the flag to one of the two shoulder strap loops for lanyard calls when you're moving through the woods or crossing paths with other hunters.

Custom Fit: One Vest for All

The Longbeard Elite Strap Vest is designed to fit a wide range of body sizes, accommodating chest sizes from 40" to 56" (MD-3X). With four total side adjustment straps, you can achieve a perfect custom fit, ensuring maximum comfort and functionality during your hunt. Plus, the earth-toned embroidered Mossy Oak logo on the lower left pocket adds a touch of style to this incredibly practical hunting vest.

Weighing in at only 3 lbs, this lightweight vest won't slow you down during those long treks through the woods. Its versatile design and numerous features make it an essential piece of gear for any serious turkey hunter.

In conclusion, the Mossy Oak Longbeard Elite Strap Vest offers a perfect blend of camouflage, comfort, storage, safety, and customizability, making it an invaluable asset for your turkey hunting adventures. With this vest on your side, you'll be well-equipped to bring home that trophy gobbler this season. So gear up, head out into the woods, and experience the difference the Longbeard Elite Strap Vest can make. Good luck and happy hunting!
