We only call the Badlands Upland Game Vest a “vest,” because that‘s so much easier than saying what is REALLY is - a vest that carries better than 90 percent of the hunting packs currently on the market. However, it's still as light as a standard game vest and offers the versatility of multiple pockets for “the most versatile layout ever.” Of course, you can see our predicament, particularly when you consider that this bird vest also offers full hydration capabilities, a fully breathable internal lining, welded water resistant rear compartment and the easiest bird access ever developed.

UPLAND VEST is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality but fit..... I love it but my only qualm reflects what has already been said. I am a 34" waist and the waist and chest straps won't cinch up tight enough. Built for bigger guys I guess. I wish it fit better because it is awesomely built.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for North Dakota roosters I used this pack on my last hunting trip to North Dakota and it was perfect worn over a sweatshirt or long sleeve shirt. Hold 3 roosters comfortable and had plenty of pockets for all my gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First impressions The upland vest is a great comfortable fitting vest, however it is more towards people with a waist bigger than 34". For people with smaller waists, the waist belt does not cinch up enough to get the weight on your hips. I still really like the overall style and quality of the vest. If yo have a smaller waist another option is to undo the stitching on the main waist belt and then you can get another couple inches to cinch it up. I would recommend this vest and maybe for future Badlands can keep it in mind to make more adjustable belt sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chukar hunting dream bag I use this game bag/pack to chukar hunt in some of the most rugged areas of Utah. It is comfortable as anything I have ever used for a hunting gamebag/pack.

Does this fit a 32" waist? Does the game bag wrap around your waist or is it all in the back? Can you clean the game bag?

Asked by: bray1001
Yes, the Upland Vest should fit a 32” waist. The Game Bag is located in the back of the pack, however there are slots in the vest to be able to place birds in it from the sides. You can also remove the Game Bag and wash it. I would not recommend machine washing any of our packs though, just hand wash.

I have a Tritronics dog collar the series 70 do you have a holder for the transmitter that can have its buttons accessible for a quick activation.

Asked by: Barny
Unfortunately, we do not offer a specific holder for transmitters that have access to the buttons. I believe Tritronics has a holster that can attach to belts/straps and what not. I would recommend purchasing that and then attaching it to the webbing on the hip belt of the Badlands Upland Vest. That is what I personally do myself.

What happened to the magnetic side pockets? How many 12ga shells do each pocket hold roughly?

Asked by: killerroyboy
The Upland Vest still has the Magnetic hip belt compartments. The picture that is currently displayed on our website is the older version, before the Zip-No Closure compartments. The descpription of the vest states that it indeed has the magnetic pockets. Each hip belt compartment would hold about 8-10, 12ga shells. The drop down shell holder can fit an entire box of shells.

Does this come with a water bladder? What kind of shotgun shell capacity does it come with?

Asked by: Todd zo6
The Badlands Upland Vest does not come with a Water Reservoir, those are available on our website under the "Accessories" section, you will want the 3 Liter size. The Upland Vest has 5 shotgun shell bungee straps on either side of the hip belt, so a total of 10 shells on those. Plus the current model has the Zip-No Magnetic pockets on either side of the hip belt, which you can put a hand full of shells in each of them depending on what gage. Not to mention the Upland Vest has a built in ammo carrier that comes out of a zippered pouch on the hip belt. I put an entire box of shells in that and it allows easy access to shells while hunting.

I bought the badlands upland pack about a year ago. I absolutely love it. However, I was getting my stuff out for hunting this year and noticed the pack had a hidden zipper below the right pouch with a hanging bag that comes out, what is it for??

Asked by: James
The hanging bag is used for throwing shells in there and allows easy access for quick and efficient reloading.
