Mossy Oak Dixon Limited Edition Turkey Vest Review:
The Mossy Oak Dixon Turkey Vest was the best performing vest we viewed. The design is excellent, the construction top notch, and the fit is extremely comfortable.
From a feature set stand point, this vest covers all your bases and includes:
Can you say fully loaded?
- Extra-thick flip-down seat with magnetic holders (great for running and gunning. Seat is also detachable and can be clipped up more securely when not needed. NOTE: seat not shown in the picture, but it is included)
- Expandable game bag (great for the end of a successful hunt)
- Adjustable The Claw non-slip shoulder straps (doesn't shift around and slide down your shoulders)Hydration pocket (a bit on the small side, bladder not included)
- Seven internal pockets plus a waterproof inside license pocket
- Decoy stake pockets
- Three striker pockets with magnetic closures
- Striker conditioning pocket (a very handy feature!)
- Double slate/friction call pocket
- Fold-down diaphragm call pocket
- Internal shell loops
On the downside, this vest is nearly twice as expensive as most other vests - certainly most of that cost is warranted due to the feature set and top quality materials. However, as part of the price of the vest, consumers make an 'involuntary donation' which raises the cost (a portion from every sale of these Dixon vests goes to the A.S. Leonard Cancer Research Fund via the ''Hunt for a Cure'' program). Don't get us wrong, we appreciate Mossy Oak's commitment to philanthropy and tribute to the late Mr. Dixon - however, we don't like forcing sportsmen to make a non-transparent contribution through a product purchase (there is no mention of the exact amount or way for consumers to actually track it).
If you want the best performing, most comfortable turkey vest in the field - you better get on the ball and purchase your Dixon Limited Edition Turkey Vest today as Mossy Oak has only manufactured 1,986 of these vests and they are hard to come by!
