Ballistic Vest Size
Breakdown Your orange vest should offer more than just the required inches of color. The Ballistic Vest makes shooting more comfortable with a reinforced foam shoulder pad and is treated with a Durable Water Repellent finish, making it an essential during your rifle season.
CHEST SIZE MEASUREMENT
Take the measurement under the armpits, and around the fullest part of chest and shoulder blades.
Sitka Ballistic Vest
I had a week to find an in-stock orange vest before a CO mule deer hunt. I looked at this one, a $50 Under Armor product and the cheap stuff. If you believe in crying once, buy this vest. It's the quality you'd expect from a brand like Sitka. The magnetic clasp makes taking this on and off easy to do. It's water resistant and acts like a shell/protects when leaning against rocks and trees. My favorite feature is the pocket options. I'd routinely stuff my gloves in the slip-in pockets and would put my magazine and headlamp int he zipper pockets so I didn't lose them. The shoulder pad seems a bit unnecessary, but it's removable/interchangeable if you don't like it.
Just used it on an Elk hunt in Colorado. Fits great over numerous other layers. It didn’t restrict movement at all. The pockets are perfectly placed and the shoulder pad is a nice addition. I’m 6’2” and 230lbs. The XL was plenty large enough to fit over my other layers. Very high quality like all Sitka gear.
Let's face it...it's pricey. But it has features that other vests do not, and it's the quality and design that you come to expect from a brand like Sitka. Overall, I'm very happy with it and am looking forward to using it in the field for the first time this season. And GoHunt filled and shipped the order super fast, and it arrived a day earlier than expected. Good on them, as usual!
