Frequently Asked Questions

There is a velcro strip on the inside of the flap that, when the pocket is unpzipped, will attach to the strip inside the pocket. This will keep the flap out of the way when you may be into birds, have the pocket open, and are needing to quickly reach in the pocket for shells.

At this time, our Shell Loops accessory is not compatible with the velcro inside the Q5 Shell Pocket, only the velcro inside the Quilomene Shell Pocket.

The Q5 Centerfire vest works best in open country and for long days out in the field. The Q5 Rimfire vest is better for heavy brush and timber situations, when hunting woodcock or grouse for example. The Quilomene Upland vest is best for heavier loads and longer days. The Quilomene San Carlos vests are better for lighter loads and shorter days.

Yes, that is one reason the hip belt (which is the same belt on both Q5 and Quilomene vests) is used. Please click here to see specific details.

Currently, the vests are only available online or by phone. We are committed to keeping the vests made in the USA and this is one way to avoid further distribution costs etc.

The Q5 Centerfire and/or Rimfire will fit a waist size as small as 28 inches. The Quilomene vests are available in Sm/Med and will fit most women and youth.

The San Carlos 1 is now referred to as the San Carlos Y-Back and the San Carlos 2 is now referred to as the San Carlos H-Back. The strap adjustment for the San Carlos Y-Back is by velcro and the strap adjustment for the San Carlos H-Back is by buckles.
