    Does anyone know if orange vests come with gauge specific shell loops?
    I don’t know if my old one is just that stretched out that my 20 gauge shells
    fall out or if it was made for 12,s?

    It was likely made for 12s, but those pockets do stretch.

    Ya, the elastic/cloth get loose. I have an ancient vest I could put motor rounds in.

    Find one of the tube fed vests, they have gauge specific inserts for the tube ends. I think some days I lose more shells than I shoot with those elastic loops! 😯

    hip pocket and be good.

    I’ve always been curious about those, and how easy they are to use.

    Had the same problem with my old vest. Over time you could pack a can of pop in the holders. I bought a new Columbia vest about 8 years ago with the plastic tubes that works great.

    Ask if you can borrow the wife�s thread injector to throw down a few stitches and tighten up them pockets or retire the old boy.

    Good idea chili.She has a few of those down in what used to be a basement but is now a quilting room.
    She says that sewing and quilting are two different things. Who knew! She quilts but apparently doesn’t sew.
