Those who enjoy shooting know the value of a good shooting waistcoat. A shooting waistcoat should be resistant to water and warm enough to keep the wearer comfortable in inclement weather. It needs large front pockets, back pockets, and inner pockets so that the hunter can access whatever he or she needs at a moment's notice, without having to fumble around. Recoil pads are important features that protect the shoulders from the recoil of the gun. Shooting waistcoats usually come in neutral colours such as brown and green. Some are left-handed vests, because the recoil pad is on the left side. Other models have pads on both sides. Whether you are looking for a tailored shooting waistcoat to wear casually, or a real outdoors vest for fishing, hunting, or other outdoor sports, eBay has a wide selection of waistcoats in both new and used condition. Invest in a good shooting waistcoat so you can stop fretting about where you put the pocketknife or the bait, and enjoy a worry-free day out in the country.
