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.

6/28/23 The website is currently open for all orders except for complete vests.
If you’d still want to add your name to our email list, be sure and add your basic size info (height, weight and waist at navel level). We’ll let you know if we have current inventory in your size range at this time, and if so will contact you by email for a scheduled website opening when website orders will process normally. Apologies for any confusion this causes.
To avoid customers ordering entire vests from Accessories, we have set a $200 limit on Vest Accessory orders. The alternative for now would be to increase Accessory prices which we’d rather not do.
