IMPORTANT WINGWORKS UPDATES
2/19/19 In “vacation” mode until 3/06/19, all website orders will be disabled until we return.
1/19/19 As predicted we’ve run out of XL Blaze Gamebag components, more are on order. Consider a Non-Blaze vest, they’re more versatile for other species like duck, doves and turkey.
1/15/19 Accepting vest orders again starting today, thanks to all for your patience as we tended to other things. We’ll be adjusting a bit in the first 6 weeks to get back to normal inventory levels and choices. Currently we are strong on non-blaze vests in standard and XL and non-blaze gamebags in both sizes with blaze harnesses. We have some blaze gamebags in both sizes but will likely run out before we are replenished in coming weeks.
We’ve always liked the non-blaze vests with optional blaze harness for times it’s needed. Most states will have blaze requirements beyond our max blaze, so shirt/coat/hats in blaze should be available. Doves, turkeys and ducks dislike blaze, so we’ve always liked the option of going non-blaze. Questions? Please save us both time by emailing or texting if possible.
7/13/18 We’re getting into the busy season, so if you need help with order issues or questions, consider emailing us before calling. We don’t pick up calls very often during working hours, and usually reply within the day. Online ordering is also helpful and saves everyone time.
For those of you with questions about vest choices and details on buckles, gamebags, etc, consider scrolling through the Vest Accessory section for more detailed descriptions of those specific items.
8/6/17 Grouse Pockets have arrived, we’re looking at non-blaze and blaze pocket flap styles. Keep in mind that these are basic pockets designed to seal out debris and fit close to the body without appendages and add-ons in the woods. No Molle or trick pouches on this style. We still recommend the long pockets for most Western hunting.
3/23/17 We’re still getting a lot of orders with pants waist size instead of “waist at navel” measurement. If you can’t handle the truth, have a friend do it for you!
WHAT’S CHANGED ON THE NEW VESTS?
- Molle pouch bases on each long pocket flaps allowing larger iPhone and pistol holster options, New roomier pouches on each long shellpocket for Garmin Astros, Alphas and others, bear spray, etc.
- New padded absorbent lining on waist belt and harness
- LH and RH shoulder harness details
- HD breathable mesh on shoulder harness yoke and gamebag
- Some experimental larger gamebags and breathable mesh long pockets for trainers and outfitters. Call or email us.
WHAT SEPARATES WINGWORKS FROM OTHER UPLAND VESTS?
- Bombproof 1050d Ballistic Cloth exterior, fully lined with 420 denier nylon packcloth, beefed up sewing where it counts.
- Modular Design: Components will continue to be interchangeable to allow users to keep up with design improvements.
- Hunter ergonomics dominate design priorities, to minimize interference with climbing, walking and shooting.
- Versatility in a variety of hunting and weather conditions; small on-the-body footprint for warm weather hunting, simple adjustments.
