In the Field with the Q5

“I received my Q5 rimfire last week and I love it! I have hunted 3 full days here in the South Carolina Low Country in pursuit of Woodcock and Bobwhite quail. I have averaged 6-8 miles per hunt and my back / shoulders no longer ache after a day in the field . Having a vest that puts the load on my hips has been a game changer! I can hunt longer and harder now. The game pouch is easy to drop birds in , my shells are essesable and don’t spill when maneuvering over obstacles I absolutely love the vest! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!” ~ Jeff

From our Rimfire Pro-staff, Jason Wright, with Thundering Aspens:

“We sure are enjoying these vests. They’ve been in use 6 days a week all day long in many different cover types since Sept. . . .The small zippered pack on the back of the rimfire holds my dog safety essentials perfectly and just last month I had a client’s dog hit a fence and filet itself open pretty bad, I was easily able to reach around unzip and pull the supplies out and stop the bleeding. It was a bad one, saved that dog just in time from bleeding out. Thank you for such a great product. As of today 84 full day hunts and the vest is doing great!” ~ Jason

“I appreciate this awesome piece of work you and your husband have designed/build, and thank you for taking the time to make sure I was satisfied with my purchase!
Also I like the generosity to give to those young children who may not have the opportunity to learn to appreciate the outdoors!” ~ Kirk

Waist: 34″ – 54″

Fitting Recommendations: Loosen all the straps on the vest. Put on the vest, set the hip belt where comfortable, and tighten the buckle. Now just tighten the 2 straps on the back, shoulder straps and sternum strap to comfort. The sternum strap is adjustable to sit further up or down the chest. It is recommended that another person assist you with the back strap adjustments. In time, as you have adjusted the vest to a permanent fit, you can adjust some of the over length straps by cutting and applying a flame on the ends to prevent fraying.
