New for fall 2023, Tom Beckbe has designed the Waterfowl Strap Vest with a suite of thoughtful upgrades from the waterfowl vests of yesterday. First they started with a shell material that we know and love: waxed shelter cloth. A weatherproof fabric with proven durability, this 8.25oz waxed canvas has the added benefit of developing a rich luster and unique patina as you use and abuse your vest.
This waxed shelter cloth vest has fully adjustable shoulder and side straps, coming in one size that fits almost everyone—short, tall, big, and small. The shoulder and side straps are anchored in the back with a fully-padded yoke that has an oversized, solid brass d-ring to safely hang your vest or to attach additional gear. The cotton webbing is soft and comfortable, lying flat against your body with just the right amount of grip to keep the hardware locked and your vest positioned where you like it. The webbing is also treated to dry quickly and resist mildewing. The center front closes with a durable, heavy-gauge antique brass zipper.
Whether you are wading flooded timber, laid out in a dry field, or concealed in blind, Tom Beckbe has done all the thinking so you can make the most of your precious time outdoors. Available in Rye Brown and Classic Camo (Timber).
