Great value vest. On the right side, this vest has 2 circle pockets for friction calls. 3 other nice size pockets, all with zippers, allow you to carry everything to the field. I like the drop down pad (2 inches thick). It is easy to detach when ready to sit down. For your spine, there is a 1/2 inch pad in the fabric on the back of the vest. I wish this were a little thicker. This vest is very adjustable and contains a camo pouch to conceal a water bottle. Excellent middle of the road vest.
