IMPORTANT WINGWORKS UPDATES
3/30/20 The Gallery photos above have changed to reflect the inventory we’ll have when we re-open for orders. Both our sewing contractors are closed for the time being, so this won’t change for a while. We’ve also recently heard that our Garmin Holster leatherworker will no longer helping us with holsters, so no tooled holsters for now though we do have some plain holsters still in stock.
We’re out of Blaze gamebag components, so the Blaze option is limited to harnesses. We have the Non-Blaze gamebags in both Standard and XL sizes.
Many of our customers have opted for the Non-Blaze vest with an extra Blaze harness when needed, or just a blaze hat and shirt to preserve the dove/duck/turkey hunt versability with the plain vest.
12/4/19 Getting close to some inventory, but we’ll be cleaning up old orders before re-opening for vests. We’ve had some supply chain issues that have been hard to replace, some new dies made and lower density foam for waist belts tried out, and other unrelated stuff to take care of still. Thanks for checking in.
8/26/19 We are seeing some inventory limits ahead with a good backlog of orders, so we’re temporarily stopping new vest orders and get current and caught up for upcoming bird seasons. We’ll still be open for Accessory orders. As of 9/16 all standing vest orders have been shipped.
8/14/19 Older Gift Certificates are redeemable at the new higher vest price, if you have trouble let us know. Pretty buried with orders right now, 3 weeks or so lead time.
When trying on your vest for the first time, center the belt on your navel, snug up the belt, then snug up the harness to keep it in place. Some weight or water will help settle the belt onto your hips. Omissions, errors or size problems? Let us know!
8/7/19 Now taking new vest orders, however if using a gift certificate please email your order for a couple of days until we debug for price change. We hope for a max 2 week turnaround to ship on vests, but volume of orders may have some effect with the season approaching. Questions please by text or email, you’ll get better answers and keep us building vests.
8/2/19 We’ll begin taking vest orders again next Wednesday, August 7th. Please note these changes: There’s a price increase on the basic vest to $260.00, Grouse Pockets won’t be available for a while, and there’s a new Accessory listing for Velcro Shotshell Strips. Online orders only for a while please, it’s the busy pre-season.
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!
