Big man safety vest question

448 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  tatersdad
After reading all the accident threads on AT I feel the need to start wearing a safety vest while hunting. I have a Gorilla safety vest, but it just seems too small on me. It rides up high on my chest and is very restrictive and therefore I rarely wear it. I am a larger guy; 6-2 and about 290 lbs.

Any big guys out there that can recommend a comfortable safety vest to wear for hunting out of a loc-on?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Good idea gatorfan98, don't need your ankle to look like mine...

I think I saw a guy over on classifieds trying to trade for a 2x-3x HSS vest.

best thing to do is go to a store that actually carries them, (sometimes not easy to find) and try them on.

Most can go either over or under your outerwear because only the tether has to stick out.

I suggest wearing the HSS over rather than under. I tried it under once and just checking to make sure everything was strapped in good. The tether pulls your coat into your throat area. I felt like this would be a big problem if a fall were to accour.
