Wingworks offers serious bird hunters a heavy duty upgrade of the versatile strap-style upland wingshooting vest
Originally developed by chukar hunters in the high-desert Northwest, Wingworks feature a weight bearing waist belt, 100 oz. plus water capacity and restriction-free movement for walking and shooting. Most versatile style for the mixed weather encountered in fall and winter. Durable Mesh and Ballistic Cloth construction, hip loading and small body footprint set Wingworks apart from the rest. Built to hold up to hard use day after day, in a variety of climates and terrain. Heavier but more durable than the competition.
QUESTIONS? Email us at email@example.com. We do avoid the phone except for resolving order problems.
10/24/22 Health setbacks for my Dad have kept us from filling many vest orders. This situation will go on for a while, so if you’re planning a trip or in a hurry we may not be able to help.
9/09/22 LW Coyote Pistol Holsters are back in stock. Please don’t try to order complete vests from Accessories, we won’t fill those orders.
8/15/22 Folks are back with us in Hailey, for a while which will leave us working half days and interacting by email only. We’ll likely repeat what we did last Spring with our email list to keep things manageable, and just sent one out to those who contacted us over the summer. Customers who made inquiries by phone or text, please email us for the next round or two and you’ll be put on the list. We are getting low on non-blaze XL Gamebags, but Blaze XL is in good supply. Lots of cover and berries in the mountains this year, it looks promising.
6/01/22 Thanks for the great response re/vest orders of the past few weeks. An upcoming family trip is requiring us to pause vest orders so we can turn around what’s here before we leave. Apologies to those who were just planning to order. We hope to be back soon but tending to seniors has variables, this time both parents over 90 finally got covid but they sailed through it fine.
5/12/22 New HD Cordura pistol holsters in left hand draw.
4/14/22 Looking at recent price increases on Kennel Doors and Vents. Vests also to $285 plus $15 shipping to the continental US.
We’re working through our email list from top and bottom before a general website opening for vest orders. We’ll be open again soon for vests, but it will be a while before we see the broad base of inventory we want. There will be some stops and starts due to family obligations.
2/4/22 We have Velcro shotshell strips back in stock in the usual sizes. Keep in mind that the .410 ga size will take many rifle cartridges as well. We typically send a length of 2″ Coyote Velcro loop with each strip, but can send 2″ Black Velcro loop with adhesive for gunstock mounts if requested in Checkout.
1/10/22 We’re starting to work through our emails and other contacts for vest orders. We don’t have a full range of Grouse Pockets, we do have XL Blaze Gamebags in stock again. In Standard Gamebags, we have only Non-Blaze and are considering phasing this size out when gone. We’ll be re-stocking accessories as we can, some are very slow to re-stock.
