Last year I spent quite a few days in the original Q5 Bird Hunting Vest designed by Dan Priest. Dan’s extensive quail hunting knowledge and experience led him to build a high quality vest that is manufactured right here in Arizona. This season, he released a new version of the vest called the Centerfire.
Although I’ve only spent a few days in the field using the vest, I wanted to post a couple of initial thoughts on the changes to the new Q5 Centerfire Bird Hunting Vest.
- Bigger game bag
- Larger back zippered pockets
- Water bottle holders
- Water bladder holder and adjustable hose clip
- Zippered/Velcro shell pockets
- Detachable daypack that can be used in conjunction with the game vest that greatly increases the vests carrying capacity
The Q5 Centerfire is available in coyote brown/blaze orange or digital camo. One of the biggest selling points of any Q5 Upland Hunting Vest is this:
“When you purchase this vest, you are helping a child experience camping and the great outdoors. A percentage of the proceeds go to Arizona Outdoor Adventures, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing healthy outdoor activities for underprivileged children. Go to www.azoutdooradventures.org for further information.”
The new design is pretty awesome and has some serious hauling capacity for all day trips. If you’re in the market for a new vest, the Q5 Centerfire Upland Vest definitely deserves your consideration.
