BEN MEADOWS 10-Pocket Field Vests

The Toughest, Most Versatile Field Vests You’ll Ever Own!

Nearly 30 years ago, Ben Meadows (the man) designed these rugged Ten-Pocket Field Vests to give you unmatched durability that stands up to virtually any working conditions. Today, Ben Meadows (the company) offers you these same deluxe Field Vests. Some of our customers have been wearing the same one for years! For a few of them, the Vest is like a child’s blanket—it goes everywhere and its owner absolutely refuses to give it up. These workhorses are available in two tough materials. The standard version is 10.1-oz., mildew-resistant Army Duck and is available in Orange, Green and Tan.
The Nylon version is popular because it's blaze orange and meets or exceeds the high-visibility apparel safety laws in most states. Made of 800-denier nylon-an extremely durable material that withstands repeated laundering without losing its shape or high-visibility color-that resists oil, mildew, rot and moths. The front and bottom edges of the Vest are reinforced with polypropylene webbing to prevent rips and fraying. Vests include utility pockets, pen pockets, and a large zippered back panel to hold maps and charts. Field Vests are also available in Tall Sizes that are 3" longer than the regular vest.
Note: If worn over a sweater or jacket, you might want to get one size larger than you would normally wear.

Not good anymore

Cons

  • Breaks Easily
  • Poor Value
  • Riding On Past Reputation
  • Wears Quickly

Best Uses

    I inherited an old Ben Meadows cruiser vest that was probably 20 years old at the time. I used it for 10-15 years myself. It stood up to a 60-hour year-round work week in the woods in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington packing food, water, relaskop, compass, pens, rangefinder, maps, calculators, flagging, etc. with no problems rain or shine. The old vest finally tore in the back from overloading on a hook instead of a hanger. I am a physically rough forester. I don't walk around the brush and branches. I work for a living. So, I ordered a new vest trusting in the reputation of the company. The new vest tore, opened seams, and faded within the first few months. The fabric supporting two of the backpack snaps tore clean off with the snaps unsnapped. Some threads are bare. The thickness of the fabric is substantially less, and the color faded immediately after one rainstorm. Apparently the old vests are no longer manufactured, and the new ones are garbage.

        Comments about BEN MEADOWS™ 10-Pocket Field Vest, Orange Nylon, 3XL:

        I have used Ben Meadows vests for over 32 years. The first 3 lasted about 30 years with only rare repair. This last one is not even 2 years old and I have had to re stitch almost every seam. I am not sure if the stitch count per inch is different, or if it is different thread, or if the seams are just too close to the edge of the material but the fact is that it is constantly coming apart. Very disappointed.

            Comments about BEN MEADOWS™ 10-Pocket Field Vest, Orange Nylon, 3XL:

            The back zippered (both R&L sides) map pocket is not easily accessible with the vest on. The vest overall is too short; all the pockets are higher up than I would like. Still, it will serve its purpose. It appears to be well-made and durable. Runs small; I would normally order an XL size, and that would fit over a light jacket. An XL didn't fit me even without a jacket. I reordered a 3XL and that is wearable with or without a jacket.

                One button/snap wasn't attached properly. When I tried to unsnap buttons to take off, one of the buttons/snaps ripped the fabric instead of unsnapping. Bought & liked many years before. The fabric quality and workmanship is no comparison to when I bought before...Dave

                  Make sure to order at least one or two sizes larger than needed, especially if you work in cold climates and have to wear over a jacket.
