First Look: Equinox Turkey Vest

Check out our first look review of the new Sitka Gear Equinox Turkey Vest as Cody highlights all of the innovative features this vest has to offer the serious turkey hunter.

Move. Don’t Move. Call. Don’t Call. Chasing gobbles requires a balance of situational awareness and quick decision making. Built specifically for fast-paced run-and-gun hunting, the Equinox Turkey Vest features a minimalist design with pack-like suspension and a comfortable fit that allows for long hikes and motionless sits. It's bulk free design is built for speedy, stealthy, snag-free movement through thick brush and timber. An innovative pocket array keeps calls, strikers and tools dry, organized and out of the way when not in use — ready at a moment’s notice. This is no traditional turkey vest. Sitka took a pack-like approach and developed a comfortable and efficient vest based on the movement and organizational needs of run-and-gun turkey hunting. It has ample yet minimalist storage — including magnetic closing pockets to keep box calls, pot calls, strikers and other tools organized and dry. Adjustable straps create a secure fit; a drop-down seat deploys and cinches back up quickly and securely.
