Should we order true to our shirt size?

If these are "athletic" fit, do we older chunky guys get the next larger size?

Wondering if a 42-44 is a large or extra large

Do you mean 42-44 waist?  If that is the case I would go with at least XL.  The athletic cut is still meant to be true to size, but just slightly tighter.  Whatever you wear in a normal tshirt size is what size vest I would order.

Shirt/coat size.  I like looser XL t-shirts, but do fit in a L

I would recommend the XL then.  That way it should fit well over your coat.  Or just order both and give the other one away.   :chuckle:

The panel is a great idea for the pack. At .8 ounces, how could a guy go wrong? :tup:

I agree!  And it can be used in other ways, too, like over a skull plate or on antlers when packing a head out, or to hang in the tree above your kill to help you find your way back, or somewhere off a horse?  The possibilities are endless!!  :)

I really like the idea of using it to Coverify the skull plate  :tup:

Wow...Fastest shipping on anything I've ever ordered.  I placed my order on Thursday night and it was in my hands this afternoon.

The Velcro closures are very thick and nice and easy to undo even with gloved hands.  The stitching and materials used throughout the vest and pack panel are very nicely done, with quality kept in mind.  To top it off there was a handwritten note with my order; The note was a very nice touch!

Glad you got it and are pleased!  Shipping might be a little slower during hunting season..  ;)

Ordered 2 vests and a panel yesterday. Look forward to it.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

A thought, you might want to make some 4,5 and 6xl vests. Not everybody is small in stature or roundness.... :tup:
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............

Thanks for the idea!
It's a bit expensive to introduce a new size so I just have to make sure there is enough demand to justify it.  Do you think there are a lot of guys (or gals) in those sizes?

3XL is pretty big  :dunno:  I'd never accuse a 3XL of being small  :o
