After lotsa years, I think it is time to replace my Barbour mesh shooting vest. I love the Barbour vest because it is tailored for a slim fit and leather details. Barbour is long out of the shooting vest business so it seems my choices are the Beretta and the Castellani. Any suggestions, comments.

In my experience Beretta vests run a full size small. If you wear a “Full”, order an “X Full”

I shot today in 10 degree F with a brisk wind. I can't think about "warm weather" anything.

Shoot The Moon. Mine is about 6 years old and still going strong.
Great folks to work with. A couple years ago I snagged the mesh part on something and tore it. Called them and they fixed it and you couldn't tell where it had been torn.

Almost forgot...If you need to tweak the sizing or want the colors a little different, they'll work with you for stuff like that as well.
:D

I've been shooting my shoot the moon vest for about 10 years. Can't go wrong with them. Only thing ld change is the leather pad, I'd go with a lighter color due to the heat it creates

Browning. Much of it is mesh. It has a pocket for a recoil pad, though I find their pads too thick for me to feel my gun mount so I cut down a Beretta pad. And the vest is not expensive.

Another vote for the Wild Hare vests in my experience with them they run true to size

Definitely go with Wild Hare. I got one for Christmas (at my suggestion) and should have purchased one long ago. Not only warm but great pocket configuration.
