Browning Bird’n Lite Vest Review

Browning Bird’n Lite Vest

I like to hunt to birds and I like to hunt often. So I need a hunting vest that can hold my gear, hold my birds, and last season after season. The Browning Bird’n Lite Vest does not disappoint. I have been using the same Bird’n Lite Vest for the past 5 seasons. It's made well and proves durable against the expected wear and tear. This vest includes enough pockets and compartments for your shells, gear, and water bottles with room to spare. It has an expandable bird bag that will easily hold your daily limit. One of the things I like the most about this vest is that it fits like a vest should. Unlike other vests that fit more like a backpack or bag. It's comfortable, easy to get on and off, and easy to clean.

Not the lightest vest available so it's less than ideal in warmer weather. But the Browning Bird’n Lite Vest is one of our favorite upland vests to be used for just about any type upland hunting in cool and cold weather conditions.

Use the D-rings for your Dogtra Pathfinder to keep both the GPS and bluetooth signals at thier highest.

Empty and clean out the game bag and pockets daily to keep game residue, twigs, and leaves from accumilating.
