By Brodie SwisherMarch 11, 2024

Few things help stoke the fire of the spring season to come like the chore of digging through and reorganizing the turkey vest. A hunter’s vest says a lot about them and the way in which they hunt. Some hunters carry a pile of gear in their vest, while others tend to take a minimalist approach. But whether your vest could supply a small sporting goods store, or you tote just the basics, the turkey vest seems to be worn as a badge of honor for serious turkey hunters. Don’t take the vest lightly! 

If you’re shopping for a new vest, or just curious about the options for a potential upgrade, check out our list of the best turkey vests for 2024.

Tethrd M2

Best Turkey Vest For 2024

If you’re looking for a turkey vest that’s made in the USA and has seemingly endless customization options, you need to check out the M2 Turkey Vest, built in collaboration with Tethrd and The Hunting Public crew. The vest started popping up last year in limited quantities, but has reached its stride for 2024 as one of the most popular turkey vests to hit the woods in years. M2 stands for Mobile + Modular. That’s where the Tethrd team gathered input from The Hunting Public crew on what the mobile turkey hunter demands.

The result was a vest that’s completely customizable with endless options. MOLLE attachments allow you to add the bird bag or hydration kit on the back. It’s truly the hunter’s choice on how to rig this vest out with a variety of pockets and attachments. The M2 is super lightweight, built more like an upland bird vest, for maximum comfort and easy access to all the tools you need most. It’s dressed in Mossy Oak Bottomland in a one-of-a-kind fabric that’s rugged and durable.
