Ben Meadows 10-Pocket Field Vests

Redesigned Field Vests are Built to Last Longer and Fit Better

Nearly 50 years ago, Ben Meadows (the man) commissioned a rugged vest to meet the needs of hardworking foresters—himself included. Ben Meadows (the company) has been selling a version of that same vest ever since. However, recently we began receiving complaints about this old standby. Customers were saying the fit wasn’t quite right, the pockets were suddenly smaller and overall, the material just wasn’t holding up like the originals that Ben designed. We took that feedback to heart and did something about it! Working with a new supplier we were able to fine-tune the older models to bring you these new and improved Ben Meadows 10-Pocket Vests. You’ll appreciate the heavier fabric, improved cut for a true-to-size fit, larger pockets and flagging tape grommets. Front and bottom edges are also reinforced with polypropylene webbing to prevent rips and fraying. Choose from three colors of Cotton Duck or blaze orange Nylon that provides additional visibility in the field.

Not a fan of the redesign

By Northwoods Surveyor

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Durable

Cons

  • Poor Design

Best Uses

    The new design appears to be good tough construction, but as stated by others, sizes run way larger than the old ones (New M is the same size as old L). That's easy enough to deal with, but the arm holes are cut way too small (at leat 2" smaller than the old ones) and come way up into my armpits. Almost impossible to get a coat sleeve through. Bothersome enough I had to modify the vest myself. I've gone through at least 5 of the old Ben vests over the years, but probably won't be buying one of these again.

    Sizing Difficulties

    By Urban Forester

    from San Rafael, CA

    Verified Reviewer

    This is just meant to give a heads up on sizes, not as a complaint about the product, which seems fine.
    We ordered three of these to replace those used by our company (green canvas). The sizes have changed significantly from the older version. I was told they added several inches to the circumference to accommodate jackets. We originally ordered two larges and a medium. The two larges were enormous so we returned them for a final count of two mediums and a small. The large and medium are the same length as each other so we had hoped the small would be the same length but not so wide. The small ended up being much smaller than the medium both in length and arm hole size, enough that it is pretty tight just over a sweatshirt, no way could it fit a jacket comfortably through the arms. We have two guys that are both about 6' and slender. One is wearing a medium that is pretty big on him and the other is wearing a small that is a bit too small, especially the arm holes.
    There is a new grommet in the bottom pocket for flagging not shown in the picture as well as one on each side near the top. There are also pencil dividers in the top pocket not shown in the picture.
    They do seem to be well made but we haven't really gotten the chance to test them out.
