    Peregrine Field Gear is proud to introduce Version 2.0 of the Trekker Dog Handler's Vest. We've incorporated our many years of upland hunting experience and the comments and suggestions of numerous other avid hunters and dog handlers to bring you this premium upland hunting vest. We also ran this vest through extensive field testing with numerous hard core hunters to make sure it would stand up to the challenges of upland hunting.

    New Updates for 2018 include:

    • Lighter weight, yet rugged water repellent fabric with ballistic-grade nylon thread
    • Ergonomic shell pockets with magnetic flaps
    • Removable, closed-bottom neoprene shell loops (12, 20 or 28 ga)
    • Integrated waist belt to support game pouch
    • 1-way brass YKK zipper

    First and foremost, we designed this vest so that those large roosters can actually be loaded from the front quickly and easily! The front opening of the game pouch has a snap expansion that provides a huge 14+" opening for loading big birds.

    Second, this vest was designed with the dog handler in mind. The Velcro transmitter pockets on the chest lay flat when empty, but expand to accommodate virtually every make and model of e-collar transmitter. The elastic restrainer loop is easily secured around the antenna of larger remotes to prevent them from falling out when you bend over. The mesh front on the pockets provides easier identification of transmitter buttons and D-rings next to the pockets provide attachment points for lanyards. In addition, two reinforced water bottle holders (with drain holes) means that you can carry enough water for you and your four legged friend.

    Third, the "Trekker" upland vest gets its name because in addition to the dual water bottle holders, it also has a rear rucksack for carrying your first aid kit or your lunch, or for stowing those extra layers later in the day when things are warming up.

    Fourth, like all shooting apparel that we produce, the Trekker vest has an inside pocket under each shooting pad that accepts the revolutionary ShockEater® recoil pad. So, now you can use those heavy high brass loads and not worry about bruising your shoulder in the process.

    And if that's not enough, we also engineered in some other great features including magnetic pocket flaps, a zippered bottom on the shell pockets (for easy emptying and clean out), hand warmer pockets, internal accessories pockets, expandable rear game pouch and a zippered game pouch.

    Finally, as with all products made by Peregrine Outdoor Products, this vest comes with a "no questions asked" Lifetime Guarantee. So enjoy those long hikes through fields, briars, fence rows and thickets knowing that Peregrine has your back. Happy hunting.


    Note: Vest chest measurements are intentionally larger than normal to accommodate cold weather clothing.

    Peregrine dog handler's vest

    Very well designed, keeping track of your dog is very important but fumbling with the electronic control is not. This is the first vest I have found that has a secure place for the electronic control. The velcro shot shell holder is another nice touch. Great job.

    I have several hunting vests that I have accumulated over the years but none of them have what it takes to be the perfect vest for the dog handler. I fell in love with this vest the first time I put it on. My Garmin tracker fits perfectly in the the left chest pocket as does my e-collar in the right chest pocket. No more fumbling around to find the transmitter. The padded waist belt was a must for me and really helps my back while carrying several birds. I spent several days researching every vest I could find on the internet and came up with this one and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Reading the reviews I noticed that some of the folks who bought this vest said that it runs a bit small. I normally wear a medium (6ft-170) but I ordered a large and I'm glad I did. With a jacket on it fits perfectly .

    November, 2018, I purchased my Trekker Dog Handler Vest. I received it fine but when I tried it on, it was a bit too small. I called and talked to Linda in customer service. She right away got a new size vest on its way to me. No hassle, no problem. Gosh, you just don't find this great of service too much any longer. Thank you Linda!!
