Streamlined, economical Half Vest with the same capacity and accessories as regular vests.

  • Double divided pouches easily hold a box of shells each
  • Spare shell holders with Velcro flap keeps shells from falling out
  • Zippered mesh reloader pouch on the back holds up to 100 empty hulls
  • Outer pocket is easily embroidered with team logos
  • D-rings for hanging towels and accessories
  • 2 Sizes: Small-Med (18-38"), Large-3XL (36-52")
  • Removable reloader pouch allows belt to tighten to a little as 18 inches
  • 60" or 70" belt available
  • LIFETIME Warranty

Perfect for the blistering hot days of Summer. It has all the storage/carrying capacity of a full vest but is contained right on your belt. A full box of shells (box and all) fits easily in each pocket. Save your empty hulls in the rear reloader pouch and empty them quickly and easily with the 2-way zipper. The belt is easily removed and exchanged for the optional 60" or 70" belt if necessary.

If you're worried about whether the Half Vest will fit a youth, then fear not. The Small-Medium version has a removable reloader pouch (secured by 4 snaps), allowing the belt to tighten down to 18 inches if necessary. Then just add the reloader pouch back as your youth shooter grows.

Great for Teams Too! If you're looking for a cost effective option for your team, the Half Vest is a perfect option. The large 4-5 inch panel on the left pocket is easily embroidered by your local shop.

    This product is great, I prefer to use a shooting vest over a shell carrier but in the hotter month’s it is not practical. With the half vest I get the use of a vest without getting hot. Great idea!

    Love this vest!

    I ordered my half vest for tracking my dogs, and it is perfect! Pockets are nice and large to accommodate scent articles and markers, fabric is soft, but heavy and high quality. Size was exactly as described. I will absolutely be purchasing these vests in future and have recommended them to my tracking friends.

    Ideal for hot days

    Shooting sporting clays on a hot day wearing a vest with the pockets loaded can be taxing. This allows you to stay cool and holds 1 box of shells in each pocket balanced on your waist. Another stellar product from Wild Hare.

    Half Vest

    Would like to have seen a "one piece" half vest. This is more of a modular approach. Should be capable of holding 100 spent 12 gauge shells. A more substantial belt (like a duty belt)

    I absolutely love the half vest. In colder weather it seems that between my layered clothing and my shooting vest, it would get bunched up when I shouldered my gun. Half vest, problem solved! Now with the weather getting warmer here in the U.P., the half vest will be a welcome alternative in hot weather.

    What an excellent product. Top service also. You can use this item with a belt if you wish. They should add that in their product info.
