Best Upland vest

I want to give a nice upland vest as a gift to a young lady that is graduating HS. Any ideas?

I have had the Browning Bird n' Lite vest for a couple seasons now and really like it. It's light and the body straps make it so you don't feel the bounce of the shells etc. It doesn't have the spring loaded shell pockets that some other vests do that keep the shells in very nice, but I haven't had too many problems with them falling out. It is mainly just making sure it doesn't flip around during transport.

Wing Works is pretty much considered top of the line. I've had one for years and love it.
I just hate seeing birds die of natural causes unless I'm that natural cause.

My Kids gave me a Wing Works for Christmas and I really like it. Good pockets, clips, great water bottles and really nice game bag.

Some products aren't worth the hype.

Wingworks is.

I have a Filson that I use for hot weather training, but I really like the one pictured below. Several friends were so impressed that they bought the same vest. It's made by ALPS

Wing works and the Q5 centerfire is really nice as well. Both have a similar build. Those are the top ones I've got my hands on. You'll also be paying top dollar.
